    RG said "our creator" which is not so. We don't all hold the same belief in who our Creator is.
    Red Herring... definition of "is" "is"...

    So what are you trying to say? Tell me who your Creator is. I'm sure you and I give the same name but have vastly different versions of who he/she/it REALLY is.

    ITA with Jessica. I love that our Founding Fathers were so careful with their choice of language. Many of them actually wrote and spoke about "God-given rights," but the Declaration of Independence doesn't use that wording. It says, "that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." This language acknowledges that every person, simply for the fact of being human, and with whatever belief system that person believes created him or her on this earth, has a certain set of basic human rights that cannot be surrendered, sold or transferred to anyone else -- namely, the government. And that doesn't mean the government can't be part of the process of protecting those rights.
    The number of U.S. states in which a person can marry the person they love regardless of gender: 30 and counting!
