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?”

  1. Just like the late Mario and the current Andrew, he is definitely not a Catholic. It’s a shame he spreads his falsehoods to our non-Catholic Christian brothers.

  2. I’ve heard this argument before, mostly to make the point that unless other people AGREE that man has rights, no one is going to pay any attention to them, regardless of if they come from man or from god or from anywhere else. I tend to agree, that is the truth of the matter.
    I strongly believe that people DO have rights. Rights they are born with. Although I am an athiest and i do not believe those rights came from god. I believe that since every person is the same (they are all people), they all have the same needs and they live their lives the same way. We need to use our brains to function in this world. Therefore, we all have the same ‘rights’: the right to think for ourselves (freedom of religion), the right to free speech, the right to do what we want in order to feed ourselves (including the right to travel freely, work at a job we are capable of, start a business without trouble from others), etc, etc etc.
    I think the US Constitution did a pretty good job of laying out the rights we should all expect to be able to live with as a society. Too bad people seem to have completely forgotten the 9th and 10th amendments which together basically state that EVERYTHING NOT specifically granted to the government belongs to the PEOPLE. We have totally turned that around to it’s opposite. It seems to have been twisted beyond all belief at this point.
    We have no more rights in the USA. They are ALL considered priviledges now!

    • Well said, Capt Jill. I like your opinion that rights at birth don’t necessarily have to be from God (if that’s your outlook on religion.) It’s good to see though that both atheists and followers of religion both agree that the newly born has rights under codes of humanity! 😊

      • Thanks Joseph, I’ve never been able to explain it very well, best explanation I’ve seen was by Ayn Rand. Lots of people don’t pay any attention to anything she said because she was an atheist, but she said some VERY interesting and prescient things in her writings.
