Freedom of Speech – Some Are Just Freer Than Others!

I saw this story over the weekend and was meaning to post about it, but I like Bob Cesca’s post so much, I think I’ll let him do the honors. (emphasis mine)

“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.” Director of Issues Analysis Bryan Fischer from the American Family Association

I wonder if each wingnut yanks constitutional “facts” out of his or her own ass, or if there’s one big community ass from which they all yank.

Just to be perfectly clear: Fischer is waaaaaay wrong. Way, way, way wrong.

It kind of goes along with the previous post about alternate realities, doesn’t it. I’ll bet you that a whole bunch of media outlets reported that story but never informed their viewers or readers of the reality of our first amendment to the constitution. I’ll just bet you.
