From Bryan Fischer, the host of the daily ‘Focal Point’ radio talk program on AFR Talk, a division of the American Family Association:

The First Amendment was written by the Founders to protect the free exercise of Christianity. They were making no effort to give special protections to Islam. Quite the contrary.

Got that?  The Constitution only protects Christianity.  Fischer continues:

Islam has no fundamental First Amendment claims, for the simple reason that it was not written to protect the religion of Islam. Islam is entitled only to the religious liberty we extend to it out of courtesy. While there certainly ought to be a presumption of religious liberty for non-Christian religious traditions in America, the Founders were not writing a suicide pact when they wrote the First Amendment.

So the Constitution, the second holiest document ever written, can be interpreted to not cover any religion not expressly mentioned?  Considering it makes zero references to Christianity, this is a dangerous precedent to set.

Isn’t it funny how the Second Amendment is not subject to any kind of interpretation whatsoever but the First is as malleable as conservative ethics?
