Calvin Coolidge: Rights Are from God

In an address to the Holy Name Society, President Calvin Coolidge said the following about our rights and equality:

"It is declared that he is endowed with inalienable rights which no majority, however great, and no power of the Government, however broad, can ever be justified in violating. The principle of equality is recognized. It follows inevitably from belief in the brotherhood of man through the fatherhood of God."

See the whole address at A Project of the Claremont Institute.
