Christian Radio Host Frank Pastore Claims “Rights Come From God” But Fails to Name One Verse in the Bible for Support
On his radio show, Frank Pastore often says that government does not give us our rights, God gives us our rights.
Pastore gets the line by paraphrasing the Declaration of Independence, which is often quoted by conservatives as a way to thumb their nose at President Obama and his administration by using God.
Last week, a caller named “Ron” who challenged Pastore to find one verse in the bible that said “God gives us our rights.”
Pastore cited Romans 13, which mentions government, but never says that “God gives us our rights.” Pastore, who has a Masters in religion, then stated “thou shalt not kill,” from Exodus 20, which does not mention God giving rights.
