CNN Anchor Claims that “Our Rights Do Not Come from God”!

I am absolutely sickened by what CNN morning news anchor Chris Cuomo (brother of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) said Thursday morning on CNN. Cuomo had Alabama’s Chief Justice Roy Moore on the air to discuss/debate the constitutionality of gay marriage, when Judge Moore mentioned that rights were not handed down by men. This is when Cuomo interrupted to declare that they did!

Here’s what Cuomo said, “Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man… That’s your faith, that’s my faith, but that’s not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.”



This is what we are fighting, folks. This is the level of ignorance that we face in our nation today. When even the wealthy, private school privileged son of a former New York Governor (Mario Cuomo (D-NY) who has been educated in the best schools and routinely speaks with the most educated of people has no idea where our rights come from… how can the “average” American know?

chris-cuomo-cnnThe problem is that we’ve allowed liberals to overrun our system of education, and over the years they’ve destroyed the very foundations of our basic cultural beliefs. Apparently, Chris Cuomo has never read the Declaration of Independence wherein Thomas Jefferson clearly explains where our rights proceed from:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…


Chris Cuomo education was apparently severely lacking, as is his respect for God.
