Even the Deists founders recognized that it was the divine who was the author of men's rights. If something SUPERIOR to a human is not the definer and creator of the rights, then you can bullshi* around about "natural" this and that, but ultimately there is no other authority to refer to and it ends up in the hands of men without recourse except, ultimately, through exercise.
So, I disagree with you as well as the two articles from the person you disagree with. It's all bullshi* hot air without God.
