Bush firmly believes liberty and freedom are God-given rights. And it is that belief which separates the USA’s founding apart from all other countries.
A primary principle in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution is that the only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.
What is Natural Law? It is God’s law. As Jefferson wrote, "the laws of nature and of nature’s God." Mankind, that is all mankind, are endowed by God with certain unalienable rights. Which means, these rights cannot be bestowed or taken away for God is the giver therein, not man. It is when man attempts to play god by giving and taking away these unalienable rights that mankind suffers.
To that end, God has already revealed a code of divine law(s) upon which all human rights are protected. To the degree a country observes and honors those divine laws, it is a land of liberty and freedom. To the degree a country rejects and dishonors these divine laws, mankind suffers losses of liberty and freedom.
Thus, the USA has a manifest destiny, a glorious example of God’s law that will inspire the entire human race. John Adams wrote, "I always considered the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in Providence (God) for the illumination of the ignorant, and the emancipation of the slavish part of the mankind all over the earth."
Bush, like Jefferson and Adams, understands deeply and correctly the meaning and purpose of America, an ensign of God’s unalienable rights upon all mankind.
God bless Bush, America, and all lovers of liberty and freedom worldwide!
"Bush’s emphasis on a global spread of what the president sees as God-given rights."
