Conservative Congressman Blasts Bachmann’s Anti-Muslim Allegations, Stands Up for Religious Liberty
SENSENBRENNER: Heidi, Heidi, Heidi, the First Amendment prohibits the government from making a distinction between what is “good religion” and what is “bad religion.” That’s none of the government’s business. Religion is a personal issue to every one of the people who lives in the United States, whether you practice a faith, how you practice a faith, whether you don’t practice a faith, whether you say you’re a member of a faith but don’t practice it, it’s none of the government’s business. And this is the whole issue of religious freedom. And that has been one of the most cherished freedoms that this country has had since it’s beginning.
A LARGE chunk of our citizenry has absolutely no clue how our government and laws work. None.
If conservatives like Mr. Sensenbrenner continue to speak like this then the middle of the roaders might be less likely to think that the right is run by complete whackos. Well done sir.
