God Bless the Child
If you are seeking God given rights, don’t vote. Bring God into the voting booth; or your own private hell, but what’s decided there is law, not scripture. Laws define our rights in society. These are Civil Rights. That’s civil; as in civilization. This American concept began with our greatest generation; the founders.
The Civil Rights Movement is not concerned with birkas in Kabul, internet privacy in Shanghai, or the exploitation of diamond miners in darkest Africa Within our borders, what began with the brash revolutionary assertion that white men of property could enjoy self-government, continues today as the Civil Rights Movement.
That every American should enjoy these original rights equally is an abiding American cause. Civil rights are not for black people. They are not about race. They are not about women or sex. They favor neither the chaste nor the promiscuous. They are not for Christians or Muslims; they shine equally on the pious and the godforsaken. They are only for one single group: We call that group the Americans. We call these rights “in-alienable”.
Incredibly, this past election, the foreign idea that these rights may be withdrawn by a simple majority vote, disgraced the ballot in California. On a day when the Obama coalition granted expanded cage rights to chickens, this “pro-fowl” in courage removed a basic human right from their fellows.
We all agree that some people are not entitled to full civil rights. These are children, criminals, foreigners, the mentally incompetent, and those in national service who voluntarily accept limitations.
Anyone who says that homosexuals do not have a right to marry must prove one of two things: either homosexuals are mentally incompetent or they do not want their rights.
