One cannot prove it, but it actually seems possible that MSNBC is employing a commentator who may not have know that the source of our rights ("endowed by our Creator") was identified by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence. At a minimum, Neblett is in essence claiming that the recognition of the source of our rights in the Declaration was an irrelevant piety that did nothing for anyone except I suppose the now-dead white men who wrote them.

...To address Toure's specific complaint, the essential truth of our rights descending from God and nature was not altered by any specific government's failure to recognize them. The "legislation that happened in relatively recent history in America" that he refers to did not create those rights -- it acknowledged them. The rights were there all along.
