It is an interesting conversation whenever you talk about someone's rights. People definitely have their opinion on the matter. Most of the time, whether inadvertantly or not, the rhetoric centers around the person, the individual, and the typical concern is whether they feel their rights have been viloated or not. I mean, that is why a conversation on rights usually begins like this:

He did this to me...

She said that to me...

They want to stop me from...

Can you believe they won't allow me to...

They've said I can't do...., but that's not going to stop me from....

If that is how things are being run, I can promise I won't be back, etc...


The LORD works righteousness and justice for the oppressed. Psalm 103:6

We throw the phrase, "I have my rights!" around like its intention was for selfish purpose and personal gain. We also can get worked up fairly quickly when we perceived a slight against our own personal rights. The viability of mask doning and whether houses of worship and businesses should be open or shut, are just a few of the latest ways you can hear the oppressed cry out. And perhaps we should. Perhaps we very well should get "up in arms" about our rights because after all they are our's.
