Do you like having rights that cannot be taken away? Do you like being equal? I'm sure you would respond with a "yes" to both. Our declaration of independence is clear "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..." You don't believe in God? Well, there is a very good reason for this, having a source of your rights being higher than any man, higher than any state, removes the possibility of another Hitler, another Stalin from holding their own interpretations and belief systems over our unalienable rights, enslaving us in an unimagineable hell. The idea of being created equal? We were all, according to the bible, created in the image of God. Every man, every woman, black or white was created in the image of God. The State is not God!
