Grab a cup of coffee and make yourself comfy because this little pas de deux between CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore goes on for nearly a half hour. And while the subject at hand is gay marriage, the heart of the matter for readers here is the parrying the two engage in over the origin of our laws. Cuomo’s contention is that our laws are not God-given. Justice Moore parries by citing the Declaration of Independence (…all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…). Not a day goes by around here in which the right to armed self defense isn’t cited, shouted and revered. But what’s its origin? Is it magnanimously granted by man or is the right to armed self defense God-given?
