"Do you think rights come from God?"
I do, and apparently so did the founding fathers:
"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 ... "
-Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
Anyway, governments do not exist to create rights, governments exist to protect them.
