Are we headed for a theocracy? God gets to decide which rights we have even though we don't all believe in God or agree on what God is like or what He or She or They want for us? I thought we came together with respect for religious freedom, mindful of past religious wars and persecution in the Old World, and decided we would never let our leaders rule based on a single religious view as European and British kings did.
Ryan made a similar statement in July, saying that rights “come from nature and God, according to the Declaration of Independence.” Does he remember the part about "pursuit of happiness?" There's nothing in there about "only the kinds of happiness God approves of." We are free to do all sorts of things the Christian God doesn't like, and that's exactly how it's supposed to be in America.
