I'm sure someone will point out a thousand reasons Rawls is terrible (I hardly have ever studied him, and that was a long time ago), but the veil of ignorance concept always struck me as a clever way to conceptualize "unalienable human rights." And though I don't advocate for this position, I think it could be used to support such rights even if there is no God or belief in one.
