Actor Richard Schiff, who won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of the dreary White House communications director “Toby Ziegler” character on the hit show “The West Wing,” said that his rights come from a document written by men.
CNSNews.com asked Schiff, “Given the whole party platform dust up, would you agree with the Declaration of Independence that all rights are God-given?”
Schiff didn’t object, saying, “If you believe in God, sure you can say that.”
“I think man wrote that. I think it was a group of men who sit down and wrote it,” Schiff, who was attending the Democratic National Convention, told CNSNews.com.
If they decided that God gave them the right to write it -- you see how confusing this is? If you believe in God and you believe God gave you that right, good for you, man. Keep on believing that.
The piece of paper gave me the right because it says it and it made it law. This is a country of laws. And if you want to believe in God, and abide by those laws, fantastic.
