“Man, considered as a creature, must necessarily be subject to the laws of his Creator,… This will of his Maker is called the law of nature… This law of nature, being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God, Himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe in all countries, and at all times: no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this.”

~ Sir William Blackstone

A little about Sir William Blackstone from the Blackstone Institute

“The Ten Commandments are at the heart of Blackstone’s philosophy. Blackstone taught that man is created by God and granted fundamental rights by God. Man’s law must be based on God’s law.

Our Founding Fathers referred to Blackstone more than to any other English or American authority. Blackstone’s great work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, was basic to the U. S. Constitution.”
