rights still have them (if a Creator exists). The existence of the rights does not depend on whether or not the person protected by them is cognizant of their source. All that matters is that the source supplied them (and of course it is also immediately helpful if government recognizes them, but that is a slightly different topic). THere may be an argument which exists for rights that are independent from the existence of God, but this is not it.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
