“Nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin, commenting on Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore’s claim that our rights come from God, pinpointed the fundamental difference between the left and the right. “The left does not believe in fundamental human rights,” says Levin. “They believe in fundamental quote, unquote rights dispensed by government, and this is where the problem rests!”
““Very interesting interview on CNN today, between Chris Cuomo and the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore, and it really does get to the nub of the matter,” said Levin. “Whether you agree with the chief justice or not on his various views of particular cases, there’s no denying what he says in this interview, and there’s no denying that Chris Cuomo believes what he says in this interview.”
““Our rights do come from God,” repeated Levin. “’That’s your faith. That’s my faith. But that’s not our country,’ he says. ‘Our laws from come collective agreement and compromise.’ And earlier he used the word ‘power.’” Levin also said: “Rights are not about laws. Rights are not about power. Where do these unalienable rights come from – these involatile rights, the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?”
“Levin then answered, saying: “They don’t come from man. They don’t come from a collection of men that we call government. These are rights. You are born with these rights. They don’t come from reason. They don’t come from logic. They are. Period.”
““You see, ladies and gentlemen, we have certain rights outside of government,” said Levin. “We have certain rights that belong to us as individual human beings – not because some Congress says so, not because some president says or Supreme Court says so, or the EPA says so, not because Chris Cuomo says so; it’s because it is so. This is a fundamental, if not the fundamental issue, around which this nation was founded – that our rights do not come from man, that our rights come from God,” said Levin.
“And if so,” he continued, “If our rights are there because of the Guy Upstairs, how are we to perceive these so-called LGBT rights? As part of the word of God? It was God who said that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. It was God who gave men and women their reproductive organs, and it was also God who made it so that human life cannot be created any other way. So, there you have it, ladies and gentleman – there are and cannot be any gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual rights. Not now, not ever.”
He also added: “Regardless of how one becomes homosexual, people should know that the moment you decide to come out as LGBT, you lose God’s protection. It’s as simple as that.”
