    This might seem humorous if it didn't have an element of truth to it:

    but this is an outrage:

    This BS has been slowly getting more common since 2001. The Nazi reference would be acceptable here. Using paranoia and scare tactics to fund Stasi like agencies, at the same taking funds from much needed public services, which in return keeps the people in need ..in need. Soon enough there will only be 2 classes in the US, poor and rich, the dream has turned to a nightmare. I'm not trashing my country, but there is a serious problem here that is for the most part being ignored.

    The concept of human rights comes from somewhere specific.
    When the rule was "the divine right of kings", all rights came from the king.

    What sunk that lie was the printing of the Bible,as the truth came into posession of the common people (much to the displeasure of the elete/ wicked / religious/ leaders).
    Thus, the Declaration of Independence states all men are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights...
    This was the foundation that is and has been under attack by the humanists, communists, and elete.
    To the degree they are sucessful- to that degree- rights become the whim of evil leaders.
    As we see currently overtaking the world.
    Truly new management is coming.
    From Heaven.

    the bible wasn't the beginning of morality

    All laws have their basis in morality and there were law codes in different cultures in existence before the 10 commandments were written. take this example...

    The Law Code of Hammurabi

    French archaeologists began excavations at Shushan [200 miles east of Babylon] in 1852. M. Dieulafoy discovered the palace fortress that the writer of the book of Esther calls the citadel of Susa. In 1901, another expedition, led by de Morgan, uncovered three fragments of black stone. After being fitted together, they formed an impressive round-top stele or pillar, which stands about 7.5 feet high. This was a copy of the Law Code of King Hammurabi, considered one of the most significant legal documents from antiquity. (Hammurabi was the sixth king of the first dynasty of Babylon, whose dating is controversial but commonly given as 1792-1750 B.C.) The stele is now displayed at the Louvre in Paris, France.

    A relief on the upper face of the stele depicts the king in worship before the sun god on a throne. The code begins with a prologue, followed by 300 laws. These can be divided into 12 sections of law: legal process, thieves, vassals, homes and land, trade, inns, deposits, family, injury to others, building, hiring, and the treatment of slaves. Sixty-seven paragraphs cover the major subjects of marriage, family and property.

    The Law Code of Hammurabi, (Hammurabi was a king who reigned in Babylonia) was written during his reign between 1792 and 1750 B.C.
    The Ten Commandments, also known as The Decalogue, are traditionally estimated to have been given around 1446 B.C. Others estimate a later date (i.e. 1290 B.C.).[2] Regardless of the acceptance of either date, the dating indicates that Ten Commandments came after the Law Code of Hammurabi. This has led some to the conclusion that The Ten Commandments were borrowed from Hammurabi's Law Code because of the chronology and because some of both of them read almost exactly the same.

    All "rights" are imaginary, made up by humans, just like heaven-hell and all that eerie theory.They are/were a guidebook for those too stupid to see we're all the same.Some need the "belief" factor (carrot or whipping stick= heaven-hell) to do right by others, some can do it through rational thought.There will always be cavemen who prefer to bludgeon others to doing their work, it's up to the masses to keep those instincts at bay.
