First Amendment

I like US First Amendment issues.

Here is good news, bad news: http://ping.fm/7yMoL

"Muslims are frequent targets today, but in the past Quakers were
lynched, Baptists jailed, Catholic institutions burned, Jews
ostracized, Mormons attacked, Jehovah’s Witnesses tarred and feathered
— and the list goes on.

We have learned the hard way that constitutional guarantees of
religious freedom mean little when the majority succeeds in demonizing
a minority and public officials are either complicit or turn a blind

The bad news is that it's happened before, it'll happen again.

The good news is that we got out of it before, we'll get out of it
