Quote# 60567

It's funny-the atheists insist on utilizing their rights to have no religion, and their rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression to convey their message, but they miss in the Constitution that we have been endowed by our CREATOR with certain unalienable rights-where do they think our rights and freedoms originate? If not God, then nthey are not rights, but priviledges GRANTED by the state, which can then be taken away at will by those granting them.
So, in their fight against the Creator, they seem winning to lose ALL rightts according to the whim of the powerful. huh.

"...but they miss in the Constitution that we have been endowed by our CREATOR with certain unalienable rights..."

Uh, yeah. That would be the Declaration of Independence, genius.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Uh, try the Declaration of Independance. I know, since Rush said it was in the Constitution it must be right. Think again.

I see you had a stroke right at the end, there.

Go ahead and try.

The Founding Fathers in their "Declaration of Independence" from Great Britian wrote about rights endowed by our Creator. The paragraph above that mentions Nature's God, not the Christian God, not the Hebrew God, etc.

You all think your so patriotic, but you don't even know one famous American document from another.

I failed history class and even I know that was the Declaration and not the Constitution. Epic fail.

Also, Patriot act? Which was Bush's idea, I hasten to add.

I think one of our rights was not to have our rights desposed of on a whim.

That'll be the same clause in the Constitution that made German the official language of the USA, right?

I just thought the framers knew how terrifying my mom was. I believe she could grant inalienable rights.

So what rights have you had endowed by your creator? The right to grovel at God's feet and kiss his arse or he'll send you to eternal torture. The right to be stupid, gullible and a God zombie. The right to be a bigoted and spiteful little simpleton. etc.

Well you can keep those rights, normals don't want them. Religion. what a heap of bollocks. Just like God and Jesus.

"It's funny-the atheists insist on utilizing their rights to have no religion, and their rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression to convey their message,"

So far, it's not funny.


"but they miss in the Constitution that we have been endowed by our CREATOR with certain unalienable rights-where do they think our rights and freedoms originate?"

It's funny that you assume the "CREATOR" to be a god, specifically, your God. We could simply be created by the laws of physics and biology, and, as we are (many of us anyway) self-aware, reasoning beings, we possess, are created with, these unalienable rights.


"So, in their fight against the Creator, they seem winning to lose ALL rightts according to the whim of the powerful. huh."

Huh? Indeed.

Yet another moron getting hung up on the semantics of the American constitution.

Clueless fucking anti-American scumbag.

"...we have been endowed by our CREATOR..."

The Declaration of Independence (I'm not a USAian and yet even I know the difference!) was written by *men* - not god, unless you have evidence to the contrary - for a particular audience and a particular time. So they used words like "creator", big deal, they didn't know any better and in circumstances like those people resort to metaphor and rhetoric. I wonder - you being quite the constitutional scholar - if it's escaped your attention that *nowhere* do they use the word "Jesus"?

On a (semi)related note, you do of course realise that the so-called Pilgrims were *not* escaping religious persecution or intolerance but left Europe so they could *practice* persecution and intolerance. They were thrown out of Holland, which even then was the most tolerant and easy-going of European nations, because of their intransigence. I see that their traditions have been handed down solidly intact.

"but they miss in the Constitution that we have been endowed by our CREATOR with certain unalienable rights"

That's not in the Constitution. That is in the Declaration of Independence.

So you just read the Cliff Note's version of our founding documents huh?
BTW the "Creator" cited in the Declaration of Independence was the Deist God not your God.

Apart from black folks, oh, and women, oh and anyone who isn't 'us'.

So how come it's fundies who claim to be the Creator's special little helpers who try so hard to take away atheists' rights?

"where do they think our rights and freedoms originate?"

The constitution?

Wanna see a state take away your "God Given" rights? MOVE TO FUCKING CHINA.

Rights don't exist, it's made up bullshit that allows the powerful fuck you in the ass while distracting you from what's really important: that you can have all the rights in the world but you still have no guaranteed food on your table nor you have guaranteed health care should something happen to you.

But hey, at least this somehow enforces the survivlal of the fittest: the morons who don't see this problem don't live long, those who do either move from the US or fix the problems with a little prevention.

Unalienable rights? Since when do Christians invoke Muslim law to prove their point?

Where does the constitution mention a creator?

Who is depriving you of rights under that same constitution?

In a democracy the State can act only in accord with the constitution.

How long did it take you to become such an ignorant gobshite?
