Good article on the source of Rep Ryan's "Rights come from NATURE and God" comments.......

Paul Ryan may actually have a great understanding of "the Laws of Nature and Nature's God"; however, that understanding is not evident in his statement that "our rights come from nature and from God".

I refer to our founding documents fairly often. I also refer to the LONANG (Laws of Nature and Nature's God) site which, on this topic, provides a very clear explanation that has nothing to do with our rights coming from nature:

"By invoking the "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" the 56 signers of the Declaration incorporated a legal standard of freedom into the forms of government that would follow. The theory of freedom adopted was simply that God's law was supreme and gave freedom. The phrase "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" referred to the laws that God in his capacity as the Creator of the universe had established for the governance of people, nations and nature. These laws are variously described as the laws of Creation, God's Creation laws or as the framers elected to refer to them, as the laws of nature and of nature's God. This body of law, whatever it is called, can be ascertained by people through an examination of God's creation, the text of the Bible, and to a certain degree, instinct or reason."

I would encourage everyone to dive headfirst into this site. It is full of great, solid information and insight:­

Thank you Terri, that's a great and comforting read (article) to know Ryan knows some history. Ha! Now we have to see if they implement what they say.
