Screw With It At Your Peril

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."
 -- The Constitution of the United States of America --

Sometimes its application will not be to your liking:

Teacher sues over Catholic school firing for using [In vitro fertilization].

But any thoughts of changing the Bill of Rights to suit one's interests should be tempered with the chilling reality that the end-result will make the Bill of Rights a worthless piece of fish wrap.

The same applies to another part of the 1st Amendment - "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech ..."

A Marine is kicked out of the Corps for voicing his opinion of Obama?

Yes.

But understand: He has every right to speak his mind.  But not in uniform.

Many Obama supporters would applaud the ejection of this man from the military.

Fine.

I would ask them to go back and rethink Teacher sues over Catholic school firing for using [In vitro fertilization].

What's good for the goose ...
