Educating the Confused – Devvy Kid

Devvy Kid: Muslims do not have a first amendment right to build mosques etc

“It says: “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.”

“Now consider the verbiage very carefully. A lot of lawmakers and most Americans make the exegetical error that the First Amendment grants us rights. The First Amendment doesn’t grant any rights to anybody. All it does is prohibit Congress from making laws about religion, speech, the press, or assembly.

“Therefore, Muslims do not have a First Amendment “Right” to build mosques, proselytize, and implement Sharia in our country.

 Uh… Devvy… What part of “prohibiting the free exercise thereof” do you not understand?

Really, how can these people claim to understand the Constitution and yet be so clueless about its content and meaning? Hilarious… And she also appears to still be upset about President Obama winning a second term 🙂
