#3 So if the inmates were aztec Pierce County should provide them with humans victims?

When the Founding Fathers made first amendmant they were thinking in verities of Christianism. They never thought about Aztecs, Muslims or Kali worshippers in America. Some non-Cristin religiones are acceptable in a civilized society (It was Mustafa Kemal not me who implied Muslim nations are not civilized :-) but others simply cannot. Not Aztecs, Not Kali worship and not Islam. Had Founding Fathers thought in Islam they wouldn't have formulated First Amendment like they did.

It is time to amend First Amendment.

#4 Claryfying the preceding text: I was not telling the United States should eb a christian-only county but thet the Founding Fathers thought in religions following a set of ethics. Those ethics are presnt in buddhism or judaism but they are not present in every religion. That is why granting freedom of religion whatever the religion is quite simply not possible. Not with a religion who is at war, a hot war, with everything else.

#5 Tarrer was convicted of paralyzing Claudia McCorvey, killing her unborn son, and murdering her best friend, Lavern Simpkins.

Religious rights? Why hasn't the guy been executed?

Covered in the para you quoted.... but most certainly the Shia will require razors for their ritual bloodletting... one of the many Eid things, I can't keep track of them all.

There was a .gif of a running sheep around here once, the Occulted Cyan Mod was fond of it.

#9 JFM, it's good to hear from you!

It's tempting to "amend the First Amendment" when it's the Other Guys who we think are abusing it; but we have a saying in the US that "Sauce for the Goose is sauce for the Gander." In other words, the rules are the same for everybody.

The US media are withholding information they don't agree with and skewing the news. We still have means to get around that. When the govt starts telling anybody what they can and cannot believe, we're all in trouble.
