John Warwick Montgomery, Professor at the University of Luton, United Kingdom, argues that inalienable human rights have no foundation outside of religious thought. As Thomas Jefferson declared: And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? (?Notes on the State of Virginia,? Query XVIII, 1787). Jefferson is echoing the words found near the beginning of the Declaration of Independence: ? . . . that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.?

Professor Montgomery holds eight earned degrees, including the A.B. (Cornell University; Phi Beta Kappa), B.L.S. and M.A. (University of California, Berkeley), Ph.D. (University of Chicago), and the Doctorat d?Universite from Strasbourg, France. Before moveing to the UK, he served on the faculty of the University of Chicago.

Dr. Montgomery is author of more than 100 scholarly journal articles and more than 40 books in English, French, Spanish and German. He is internationally regarded both as a theologian (his debates with the late Bishop James Pike, death-of-God advocate Thomas Altizer, and situation-ethicist Joseph Fletcher are historic) and as a lawyer (barrister-at-law of the Middle Temple and Lincoln?s Inn, England; member of the California, Virginia, Washington State, and District of Columbia Bars and the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States). He is one of only six persons to have received the Diploma of the International Institute of Human Rights cum laude, and was the Institute?s Director of Studies from 1979 to 1981.
