We are free to exercise whatever religion we want, and I will defend to the death our right to do so. No one is free to inflict their beliefs upon others, and I will defend America to the death from any attempt to do so.
Since 2001, we have relentlessly fought a war against intolerant Islamic societies, both at home and abroad. The First Amendment does not permit any religion to advocate the destruction of other religions or harm to those who are following their beliefs. Those who do are enemies of America, whether they are at home or abroad.
However, those who believe that we need to legislate morality and “family values” in the United States fail to see the hypocrisy in their argument. While these efforts have certainly not been as radical or violent as we have seen in Islamic societies, that doesn’t make it less wrong.
The First Amendment begins with “Congress shall make no law.” I will oppose any action which confers or denies government benefits or privileges to any person on the basis of religion.
