Endowed With Inalienable Rights . . . By Whom?

August 31, 2010 03:53

The very first line of the (UN Human Rights) report states:  “The story of the United States of America is one guided by universal values shared the world over–that all are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights.”  Perhaps I’m being too picky or hypersensitive, but I couldn’t help but ask upon reading that sentence, “Would it have killed you to say that all are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights?”  After, the Declaration of Independence (to which the report is plainly alluding) uses that language.
