That is the thing that most of the "I know what's best for you" jerk-offs don't understand about OUR Constitution. It protects us from the Government, The First Amendment is just that the FIRST Amendment. Our guarantee of FREEDOM and PRIVACY. This new Furam President should be wonderful for education. You might not like what I do, but I should be allowed to do it if I don't harm you or anyone else. Read the U.S. Constitution! I bet you haven't ever read it... Why do you think they removed Civics from public education? The dang politicians don't want us to know what freedom really is.
You might not like it, but I say TAX the churches. They are getting extremely rich and politically too powerful. I said you wouldn't like it, didn't I?
