Freedom of Religion versus Conspiracy to Commit Murder

Reader comment on item: The U.S. Institute of Peace Stumbles

Submitted by Timothy B. Roberts (United States), Mar 24, 2004 at 22:48

Dr. Pipes has correctly identified militant theology as one of the greatest problems confronting the United States. Jihadi militants enjoy using the United States Constitution, as well as our national sense of goodwill, to camouflage their ultimate goal of conquering us. The First Amendment, however, does not legitimize killing in the name of a Deity.
