Well Said

In an audiobook I listened to last week (review coming in a couple days), the author included a quote from G.K. Chesterton.  This comes from his What I Saw in America (1922):

The Declaration of Independence dogmatically bases all rights on the fact that God created all men equal; and it is right; for if they were not created equal, they were certainly evolved unequal. There is no basis for democracy except in a dogma about the divine origin of man.
