    Are you good with this one or do you want to give a few more tries?

    P.S. You left out neither.

    The "right to own a home" is a privilege granted to those who can pay for it.

    Not a right and not a privilege.

    It is an "Option," perhaps a metaphor of a dream.

    Property taxes come first. If you own property and don't pay the taxes, the owner takes the property, so, at best, it compares poorly to a mortgage, except a mortgage has a final payment and property taxes are forever.

    Neither. It is something that you can do with your money if you have enough. No rights or privileges involved.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Hmm so either it's a right and everyone's entitled to their ObamaHouse, or it's a privilege and the state can just take it if you own a gun or make a politically incorrect statement in public. Hmmm decisions decisions.

    It's a right in the same way that owning a gun is a right. If you have the means, you can, but the government is not obliged to give you one for free.

    Well since owning a gun is guaranteed by the Constitution, where's my ObamaGun? Or BushGun for that matter, shouldn't he have been handing them out on street corners too?
