Leave First Amendment alone

Reader comment on item: CAIR Backs Down from Anti-CAIR
in response to reader comment: ISLAM IN AMERICA

Submitted by Jason (United States), Apr 24, 2006 at 14:47

There is no need to amend the First Amendment in order to shut down CAIR and its offspring. The First Amendment protects religion, not terrorists. Islam is a religion and is protected. Islamism, aka Islamofacism, is a terrorist movement passing itself off as a religion. As such, it is not protected. It is no different than certain "fundamentalist Christian" groups that call for the bombing of abortion clinics and the assasination of abortion doctors. In either case, you have a group of fruit-cakes using religion as their shield.
