The Nature of Constitutional and Human Rights

The Nature of Constitutional and Human Rights

A further aim of this centre is to advocate that the true nature of constitutional and human rights is founded upon a primary commitment to God, which, in turn, entails absolute respect for the dignity of the human person. This requires respect for the principle of equality which responds to unjust discrimination between persons. The just application of the true nature of constitutional and human rights is not meant, however, to be used to the detriment of the common good, such as to advance the legal deconstruction of marriage, the family or faith-based education. Rather, constitutional and human rights are intended to protect and justly order the inalienable dignity in human difference and not become political instruments to impose a secular uniformity.
