I have probably recited the words “unalienable rights” a thousand times in my life, but have never known what those words actually mean. Unalienable (from the context of the Declaration of Independence) means: The state of a thing or right, which cannot be sold. What I didn’t know was that “inalienable rights” CAN be given away by the possessor. Inalienable means: Rights, which are not capable of being surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one possessing such rights. Morrison v. State, Mo. App., 252 S.W.2d 97, 101.
We are told in our Declaration of Independence that “All men are created equal…[and] are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Let’s just assume that by the words “all men” we are talking about “all people,” as women, different nationalities, and now the GLBTQ community have had to fight for the right to even be considered in this document as humans. So, we now get to celebrate Independence Day with more clarity. The social media and news are abuzz with people really celebrating their social liberties this year, more than ever.
What I wonder is: how long would we have been willing to suffer the strong arm of people in our lives who would keep our unalienable liberties within the grips of their personal power. Remember, it wasn’t millions of people who turned around the courts to get their rights. The number of people truly fighting for those rights was a few astute lawyers and the action of those lawyers put to work by the financial support of many in such groups as The Human Rights Campaign.
And, as I have been a part of this fight since it began, I realize that the action of civil liberty took many, many years of dreaming, fighting, being kicked in the behind, and in the crotch, from naysayers in political power and by religious right-winged people who insisted to bring their narrow-minded views of religion into the political arena, before the simple idea of millions of GLBTQ people being disenfranchised from their unalienable rights! Women and African Americans can understand this fight, because, even after you win the war in the courts, you still suffer the ignorance of those same narrow-minded individuals who refuse to give you what is already yours.
You see, this problem is actually what we fight in every individual live, daily. Spirit has “given us the kingdom” already. The keys are ours. Yet, we refuse to believe the kingdom and all that’s in it is ours. We will not occupy the kingdom without someone else’s referral or okay. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of living my life like this. I am ready to—gladly—take what’s mine in this world and accept it as a free gift from God! I’m not willing to sell it or give it away, as what God has given me is UNALIENABLE, not INALIENABLE.
March on, friend!
