Unbelievable. This is important. This is not just ignorance, or a mis-quote. To leave out the phrase ‘BY THEIR CREATOR’ (and the very meaning of “NATURAL” law) underpins the very concept of ‘inalienable” rights guaranteed to us by that declaration. These ‘natural’ laws are given to us through our Creator, and not by man.

These points are all expounded further within the Federalist Papers. When ‘by their Creator’ is left out there is no longer any rational (or for that matter legal) justification for the endowed “unalienable” rights. Rights that are inborn and independent of any man made laws. Once natural law is removed all of us become subjects of the government and our rights ‘inalienable’ or otherwise are now no longer determined by ‘natural’ law but by man made laws rather than God.

Folks, this is how freedom dies. The next step is tyranny.

You’ve inspired me. I’m making note about all this, it’s all tied up together.

Thanks. I have to teach a catechesis class, and this makes good material.

Did you see post 35?

Anyway, you said a mouthful.

Once the “creator” is removed “the peoples” inalienable rights go also.

God I hate what this bastard and his cadre of subversives are doing to our country.

A pox on their house!
