The Divine Right of Rights

Rights believers claim the divine right to rule others. They call their divine right to rule others reason, not religion, but they take a theological position just the same.

People can and do give authority they don't have. That's why the French Revolutionaries and Bolsheviks employed agents with guns. They had to force people espousing the old-time religion to obey their new and improved version.

Religion has to do with ultimacy. The anti-Sky Wizard position on ultimacy is more prone to fanaticism and violence than the pro-Sky Wizard position.

Trinity Sunday Epistle

The translation to the epistle to today's Traditional Latin Mass follows. If you crave rationality, replace the word preceding the bracketed term with the bracketed term. Revel in your Anti-Sky Wizard Sky Wizardry!
33 O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God [Free-Floating Abstraction Called Rights]! How incomprehensible are His [Its] judgments, and how unsearchable His [Its] ways!
34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord [Free-Floating Abstraction Called Rights]? Or who hath been His [Its] counselor?
35 Or who hath first given to Him [It], and recompense shall be made Him [It]?
36 For of Him [It], and by Him [It], and in Him [It], are all things: to Him [It] be glory for ever. Amen.
Romans 11:33-36

A Right To Trespass?

The trespassitarian argument summarized:

If the people in a town are taxed to pay for roads, the best way to redress that theft is for the town to engage in additional theft to subsidize the migration of angry, alien hordes into the town to prove to the vice-signalers that the commons belongs to people who didn't pay for the roads every bit as much as it does to those who did.
