Poor God – according to CNN’s, Chris Cuomo, God gives us no ‘rights’ and deserves no credit for any of the ‘divine’ proprieties he has bestowed upon man. It’s all rubbish, Chris Cuomo implies, “Our rights do not come from God. Our rights come from man.”
Obviously, Chris Cuomo feels that the day man is born he is entitled to no rights. The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is not a God-given right, but instead, a lawful privilege gifted to man only by his peers.
In other words, and in Chris Cuomo’s view, God resides in the ‘second chair’ in the court of moral proprietorship behind man, who he, coincidentally, created in his own image.
Should we have expected anything less from a lawyer and the “New Day” host who frequently casts extreme liberal, opinions on CNN?
Of course, that is Cuomo’s ‘unalienable’ right. But was his right to voice his opinion given to him by man, or was it a virtue given to him at birth?
Chris Cuomo should ask himself that question before he strips all those God-given rights away from the rest of us.
It is surprising that a Catholic like Chris Cuomo would pass an opinion that conflicts with his own Christian faith. “That’s your faith and that’s my faith,” Chris told Alabama Supreme Court Judge, Roy Moore, in an interview this past week. “But not our country.”
The Moore interview was about the Alabama judge’s refusal to adhere to a federal judge’s ruling on same-sex marriages – an issue which Cuomo feels very passionate about. So, it comes as no surprise that Cuomo would take offense to any presumption that God’s law supersedes any law originated by man.
Could a progressive and elitist, liberal have it any other way?
Here we go again; the religious and moral controversy surrounding same-sex marriage ignites fiery debate and promotes the political exile of God.
In the ‘Declaration of Independence’ it says:
“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.”
Those are words that Chris Cuomo should go over carefully. Nowhere in that document, the Bill of Rights and the United States Constitution does it say that man at birth has NO rights until given to him by man.
Therefore, the absence of the ‘written right’ at birth does not exclude man from having any rights at all – including God-given rights.
Obviously, Chris Cuomo has never heard the question, “Who says I don’t have that right?”
