Well it's been a busy couple weeks. Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner. Ironically, my motivation for posting that pop quiz question has dwindled, but I'll write about it anyway.
I got in this discussion on Decapolis about "Jesus, Politics, Taxes" and it got directed towards rights.
Rights come from God, or the Creator; it doesn't matter what one calls Him, the point is they come from a higher power. Believing this doesn't even require one to be religious, although I guess it might be a problem for atheists.
The idea is that man has inherent rights, some of them being life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I was quite surprised when someone in this discussion actually argued contrary, that rights come from government. But by definition rights cannot come from government - only privileges can. It was both sad and frustrating that someone believed their God-given rights were created by the government. Government privileges can be revoked; rights cannot.
So anyway, I asked just because I wanted to see what other people thought on the topic.
