    Morals and Rights

    No one has the right to disobey God. God has given man certain rights. Morals are in line with His Law against which we should not transgress.
    Bereishit - Genesis - Chapter 1

    1 In the beginning of God's creation of the heavens and the earth.
    :א בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ

    in beginning he created gods the heavens and the earth

    Disobey God ? How do we determine what "disobeying God " is ? And WHO determines this ? This sounds like a code word for advocating government persecution of anyone who does something CHRISTIANS disapprove of . The last thing America needs is a theocratic government .

    Oh please, spare us the hysterics. England has an actual official church and the English monarch is the head of the church, but that hasn't resulted in imposing religion on anybody now has it. Islam is run amok there. You Leftists with your dire warnings of a "theocracy" is just so much stupidity.

    bad idea - lots of examples of that in the Bible

    read the Bible

    And WHO determines this ?

    No. I mean if you wonder who God is you should go in search of the correct God. There are commandments. No one should be persecuted. But if you break the Law should there be any punishment? Christians may not be for Law at all. As for theocratic I don't know what you mean, but I feel a need to talk about it. If God rules then men make decisions that reflect what God would have them to do.

    Arguing with Horn is a waste of time.

    "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the "unalienable rights" which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator, and which governments are created to protect.

    Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness
    Life - all those founding fathers who wrote the declaration of independence are no longer alive

    Liberty - bounded by law, based on God's Law

    The Pursuit Of Happiness - no guarantee of catching it though

    it's a shame really, because the rare times he does respond he provides an incredibly vivid example of the deranged diseased leftist mind

    He is a person, like you. God wants us to be able to respond to anyone.
