The doctrine of "rights" precisely works through this fleshly desire to be independent of God. It establishes a standard by which the acceptability of the welfare of humans is determined by what humans demand, not by God's righteous decrees.
The doctrine of "rights" is a product of the "enlightenment" era which was hostile against the ways of the true Church. It was a backlash against the Church's authority, which is ultimately a wicked rebellion against God. Hatred and rejection of the Church is hatred and rejection of God: He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me (Matthew 10:40).
