    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes. They still are. I don't want to say religion is expanding as much as tools who crave power tend to use a religion as an excuse to grab more power and of the major religions... Islam seems to be the more convenient tool to use as of late.

    Jihadis have not hijacked religion, they have merely implemented a fifth century version of it.

    Really, from OBL's letter fifteen years ago, to the most recent complaints, stuff that happened in the last fifty years is what's brought up.
