    the USC does not allow the govt. to pass any laws that respect or attack any establishment of religion.

    That doesn't have anything to do with this......"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

    The title is misleading. He wasn't "reading the Bible" he was preaching, he was reading aloud as many ministers and preachers do on Sunday in church. You could have said he was reading from the Bible if you wanted a short title, that would have been closer to the truth.

    Government is doing that right now! They are REQUIRING religious orginizations to provide birth control for their employees even though that goes against the teaching of said religion.

    I agree. Govt is out of control and the people need to rise up and kick these people out.

    The freedom to express one's religion is routinely infringed, your rights can not trump another's, wrapping obnoxious behavior up in religion still doesn't work.

    Parking lots are funny places, like sidewalks they have public assess but are the responsibility of the property owner. A lot depends on the local ordinances. Not some big bad nanny state but local folks, business owners much worshiped in 'conservative' circles as the Job Creators who don't like, want or need disturbances. Don't blame liberals or Obama for the disturbing the peace ordinances, it is quite conservative business men who routinely support such laws.

    Then again many 'conservatives' were quite insistent a Muslim Cultural Center shouldn't be located so close to Ground Zero. It might be more a case of which religion or maybe more on target, a good rock to throw when railing against big brother, the nanny state, socialists destroying Gawd, and the tripe that gets flung at such times...
