This article sounds like it could have been written by me. I find I surprise people a lot. Either they know of my belief in letting people do what they want without legal hindrance, and are surprised to learn that I am a fundamentalist Christian; or else they know I am a Christian and are surprised to learn I do not support laws banning unChristian activity. (The latter surprises probably happen a lot less frequently than leftists might expect, because believe it or not more of the religious world agrees with me than you might expect. Sometimes I forget that there are a bunch of religious people out there who really do want to force their religion on everybody else, because I just don't see it that often.)
Perhaps as another surprise, the only thing I disagree with in the column is the assertion that rights come from God. He is correct that rights do not come from the government. But rights are inalienable and you can believe they came from wherever you want to believe they came from. Rights come from the basic fact that each person owns himself. The only way to deny that fact is to assert that someone else owns that person. If you can't assume or prove that a person owns himself, then you certainly can't muster the even greater proof which would be necessary to demonstrate that someone else owns him, so I think this is a pretty solid axiom.
