Our American society is riddled with myths and false traditions. We ingest and regurgitate lies. We say, "Declaration of Independence", when it should be "Unanimous Declaration". We pronounce 'Congratulations' as if it had a "D" in it. We think that America is supposed to be a DEMOCRACY. We are oblivious to the fact that our cities are corporations, and that, as such, they are not entitled to charge us with crimes (like speeding) and drag us into court. We forget that America has filed bankruptcy three times (1787, 1933, and 1989). We are oblivious to the fact that Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, is not an employee of our country. We are led to believe that Winston Churchill was a wonderful guy. We forget that the Bush family is almost a monarchic dynasty. We think there is a word "inalienable" when there is not. We think that the yellow fringe around the Stars and Stripes is not a problem. We no longer wonder where the water is when we see a sign at the stateline which reads, "PORT OF ENTRY". We think that "between you and I" is good grammar! We accept the idea that this nation was not founded as a CHRISTIAN nation. We are oblivious to the fact that the 13th and 14th Amendments were NEVER properly ratified (by three-fourths of the States). We forget that U.S. dollars (Federal Reserve "Notes") are actually bounced checks. We think that the Constitution is still in force. We think that Barack Obama's position is more powerful than Ben Bernanke's. We think the U.S. gained independence from Great Britain. We think that the territory of Utah gained statehood.

Our Mormon society is not much better. In it, we believe that revelations to the Church continued after 1889. We are told that Joseph Smith had just one wife. We are taught that Jesus Christ is the Jehovah of the Old Testament. We believe that all hands were raised in support at the announcement of the 1890 Manifesto. We think that Jesus Christ was a single man. We think that Joseph Smith penned 13 Articles of Faith, when it was actually 14. We think God spoke to Spencer W. Kimball, when He did not. We think that the fastest route to the Celestial Kingdom is a two-year mission, a temple wedding, a four-bedroom, three-bath house, and a once-a-month temple trip. We swallow the lie that abortion is acceptable to God with the approval of competent medical authority. We accept the fable that the ten lost tribes of Israel are hiding at the North Pole. We are told that the Savior was a Jewish carpenter. We are taught that the priesthood is subordinate to the church, even though, in June of 1829 (when the priesthood was restored) there was no church. We are taught to "Follow the Brethren" rather than Jesus. We think that tithing was supposed to replace consecration.

We have much confusion over what "RIGHTS" are. We hear of God-given rights, Natural rights, Constitutional rights, civil rights, and human rights. Let's look at each. First, we need to understand what a "right" is. If you think about it, in a universe where there is no God, there is no such thing as a right. Without God to uphold it, you wouldn't have a right to anything. I guess you could fight for stuff.

Citizens of a free, complex constitutional republic have rights and duties inherent in life as a fleshly, living, breathing human in society with other people. You are BORN with rights and duties. Any discussion of "privileges" and "immunities" must include the notion that there is a monarch or government official who grants you those privileges and immunities as part of a title of nobility (which is forbidden in the Constitution). See this articulate discussion. He could just as quickly revoke your privileges and immunities (like the "driving" privilege - as contrasted with the Natural right to "travel" the highways).

Without God, people can claim no rights. That is perhaps why our godless, corporate government repudiates and oppresses our rights. Our Natural rights are UN-A-LIEN-ABLE, meaning they cannot be liened away. Try bartering away your right to breathe or to love or to pray. Natural rights are sustained by God. Governments are not entitled to take them from us. There is no such thing as a "Constitutional Right". The Constitution DID NOT BESTOW rights upon us. The Constitution listed a host of restrictions on government. The "Bill of Rights" (the first ten Amendments) simply enumerated more of our Natural (God-honored) rights which the government would not be permitted to abridge.

What are "Civil Rights"? Are they some special, new-fangled, overlooked liberty which we didn't realize we didn't have before? Were they rights that only a "civil" government could bestow? We hear a lot about civil rights from organizations such as the ACLU. Like the "Three-Tiered Framework" of judicial scrutiny, civil rights are a 20th century innovation - a creation of the government. They are not discussed in the Constitution. Can the government "create" rights for us - or can it only create laws to control us more? The development of "modern" civil rights was driven by a desire to take extra precautions, through statutes, to ensure that certain minority classes would not be disadvantaged by the majority class.

What are human rights? We hear a lot about human rights from organizations like Amnesty International. Simply put, human rights encompass the right not to be tortured. If you are fighting for your human rights - things are already pretty bad for you.

Which of these different types of rights are we willing to fight and die for? Is the right to choose a spouse a Natural, God-sustained right?
