Bill of Rights/Amendment 1:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

NEEDS to be UPDATED:

"...or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; (with the exclusions of any "free-exercise" of Islamic-Doctrine, and more specifically, Koran #'s 4.34, 9.05, and/or any other Islamic-Doctrine that allows beating the wife and sneak-whacking infidels from behind a bush); ...."

Yes, while focus remains on possible repurcussions from sticking our noses into Iraqi-Constitutional debate...we should modernize our own Constitution, FIRST!

For you Mr. Pipes, if they write Shariah into the new Iraqi Constitution...what were we there for...all for naught!
