Firat amendment rights - for everybody

Submitted by Frank Adam, Apr 8, 2009 14:48

Time to run a "test case" or is it a "class case" in which the issue(s) is whether it is within the first amendment freedom of religion:

* to preach against the legitimacy & form as distinct from the policy of an elected government?

*to conspire, plot and use bombs or other weapons against an elected government that itself obeys the first amendment by not interfereing with freedom of worship?

Good luck as the US was founded by refugees from persecuting governments, inherited English treason laws, and initially - at least till independence must have made some obeisance to the Elizabethan and Charles II "Act for the Uniformity in Religion" and the Toleration Act that followed the 1688 English Glorious Revolution, but this last did not apply to Roman Catholics.

Perhaps someone with more knowledge than I, might be able to answer one question. After all the past indictments of CAIR leaders & now this story: Why has CAIR not been designated as a foreign terrorist organization? I would appreciate an answer.

I knew that CAIR was not in this country to play nice. They always announce their intentions. They have not joined up with our politically correct crowd that so many naive people have joined. I am positive their are many people in the Islamic Faith that are decent law abiding people. However their are many that espouse being of that faith that are savage murdering bloodthirsty subhumans. I have seen some people of that faith that have spoken out strongly against those people that use Islam as the driving force behind their atrocities. I have also noticed that those outspoken people generally have fatwah's placed on their head. I understand that there are over a billion people of the Islamic faith scattered over the planet. I would hope that at least 10% of that faith would speak against the atrocities comitted in their name. The voices of over 200 million people condemning those murdering thugs would have great impact. It might even give some wek kneed politicians in the United States enough courage to call them terrorists. No probably not!

The F.B.I. is only 10 years behind the curve and this is the group designated to keep us safe? one wonders how this new policy will be reversed under the incoming Obama administration. the annointed one has been in office about an hour now and he's already been on Arab T.V. begging for mercy, had obsequious correspondences with Iran's despotic leadership and announced plans to close down Gitmo. americans wanted change, and now we're getting it. we're changing into Europe.


Trusting Muslims

Muslims don't get mad, they get even! This feud with Christianity goes back hundreds of years, when the Muslims were defeated by the Christians in the battle for Jerusalem. The so-called peaceful Muslims that came to Europe in the latter part of the 20th century, {meaning: when the the Ayatollah and his retinue were kicked out of Iran, and were welcomed in France & England in the 70's}, grouped themselves in ghettos and didn't assimilate like other immigrants did. Now they are in Parliament, calling the shots, and those elected leaders have knuckled under. In fact, Sharia law is now alive and well in the British Isles, where large concentrations of Muslims live. The Brits have been subjected to terroristic marches, where the main theme is the Muslim mantra, "Death to Infidels!" That's you and me, folks. Not only that, but they riot and burn, as they did in France. They're not after civil rights for some wrong, they're after control, and forceful take-over. While they cry how persecuted they are, when was the last time that Western TV showed someone of the Christian faith cutting off the head of some handcuffed victim? Muslims, contrary to what they say when they're living among us, do have slaves in Muslims countries. And guess who those slaves are? Many are Christians who have been forced to renounce their faith, in order to keep their heads. Literally. Better get reading folks; they're in our government, scheming against us, using our laws against us, and an unwitting and clueless populace is voting them into office, under the mantra of diversity. When they smile, remember that Jihad against you is behind it They are waiting, waiting....
