The First Amendment to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prohibits the making of any law "respecting an establishment of religion", impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

It says impeding the 'free exercise of religion'.
It doesn't say impeding the free exercise of Christianity'.

Everyone has the right to practice, or not practice, any religion they want.

But no one has the right to deny others their rights.
No one has the freedom to deny others of their freedoms.

Obviously there are many interpretations of Islam that violate and strive to deprive others of their rights and freedoms.

But to, there are many interpretations of Islam that have no ill will towards others.

As much as I have Islam, I would stand against any attempt to deprive Muslims of their freedoms and rights until they try to deprive me of my freedoms and rights.

So you agree that "there are many interpretations of Islam that violate and strive to deprive others of their rights and freedoms"?

If so, we may share more common ground that either of us would have guessed.
