And for Regan’s quote:
Rights are not god GIVEN, they are granted by a government through structure and/or by men consensually establishing a government that observes them. God, in the bible, when asked by men to have kings, let them have kings. That changed the structure to any rights a man would get would come from a king. Thusly, Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence,”“We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal; that they are ENDOWED [not ‘granted’ - a. To equip or supply with a talent or quality] by their Creator [not ‘God’or Christ, because TJ had questions and this word would fit with almost all religions or even atheists or other deists] with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; THAT TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS, governments are instituted among men, deriving their JUST powers from the consent of the governed.” The convenience of having a king and not having one is you become a take-over target by other kings. While Regan was good at pedaling borax products, he misunderstood the majority of founders as they said over and again in papers and letters and put in the Constitution a prohibition of congress making law to establish religion.
