…then there is a real problem:

The idea of natural rights is only a philosophy. At its core is the idea that we are owners of our own person. The alternative is that we are owned by other individuals or owned by a collective (the State). If we are not “endowed by [our] Creator” with these rights, from whence do they come?

The upsetting question is not whether Obama believes in God, or whether he’s an Atheist—I don’t care about that at all. The upsetting question is this: If Obama doesn’t believe we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, then what is his explanation for the source of the endowment? I have an awful feeling in my gut that his answer is “the government.”
