    US Declaration of Independence:
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their ~>Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …”

    US Constitution Bill of Rights
    “Amendment IX
    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    “Divine laws are those that God has, in His grace, seen fit to give us and are those “mysteries”, those rules given by God which we find in scripture; for example, the ten commandments.”
    ~ One definition of Divine Law from the Internet. This quoted one is from Thomas Aquinas.
