Surprise! Surprise! The First Amendment also applies to Muslims.

MURFREESBORO — A Rutherford County judge decided to uphold his earlier decision that the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro has a right, by law, to build a bigger place of worship.

“Those who are adherents to Islam are entitled to pursue their worship in the United States just as are those who are adherents to more universally established faiths (in our community),” ruled Chancellor Robert Corlew III. ….. Corlew’s latest ruling reiterated that Islam is a religion. (link)

Wow! What a concept! The people of a community don’t get to decide who gets to have a house of worship. They don't get to decide who is covered by the First Amendment? I knew it would come to this. First, you let in the Jews with their funny little caps and weird dietary laws and openly denying that Christ is the Messiah and they start building Synagogues. Jews!   

Then, the Catholics: You know those Catholics take their orders from the Pope and can’t really be good Americans.  You know that don’t you? For hundreds of years, Catholics governed much of the world.  Catholicism is really a political system and not a religion.  Anyway, we let in those weird Catholics who worship Mary rather than Jesus and they became established.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the Knights of Columbus are not stockpiling weapons in the basement of the local Catholic Church, just waiting for the day they can again make war on protestants and rule the world.
Then, we let in lots of other weird religions, like Hindu and Buddhist.  There is a Hindu Temple in Bellevue. Talk about weird!  It is full of these ugly little idols that those people worship.  This is America, we shouldn’t allow that.  Hindu and Buddhist in America? We ought to make everybody be a Christian.  This nation was founding as a Christian nation, by God, and if you don’t want to be a Christian, just get the Hell out! That's what I say.

To be an American, you should have to be a Christian. It is that simple. That's what I believe and that is what Lou Ann Zelenik believes.  She didn't exactly say that but she said the First Amendment doesn't cover Muslims. 

I think you ought to have to be a Christian. But, not just any Christian. Well, the Catholics aren’t really Christian, anyway, so I don’t even count them.  But there are a bunch of others who claim to be Christian, like the Mormons.  They get to have more than one wife and they wear holy underwear that they can never take off and they believe they can Baptize by proxy people who are already dead and get them into heaven.  How weird is that?
Then we got the Jehovah ’s Witness. I don’t know a lot about them, but they keep ringing my door bell wanted to talk to me.  I understand Michael Jackson was a Jehovah’s Witness and he was really weird. That’s all I need to know about Jehovah’s Witness.
And, we have the Church of Scientology. I won’t even go there. They are just kooky!

Now, I believe in the First Amendment and all, but it ought to be for people like us.  I can understand it covering the Church of Christ, despite them thinking they are the only ones going to heaven; and, the Methodist, but they have become so liberal and wishy-washy, I don’t really care for the Methodist, nevertheless, they should have the right to be wrong; and, it should cover the Pentecostals, except for the really weird ones who are nothing but charlatans taking advantage of people and performing phony miracles.
Now, all of the Baptist should be covered by the First Amendment, that just goes without saying.  I really do believe in the First Amendment.
