"The divine origin of man"
“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.” ~G.K. Chesterton: What I Saw In America. (1922)
