    I’ve been saying this forever and nobody pays attention to me.

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation is on a crusade to expunge religious expression from the public square, and the group gets the meaning of "separation of church and state," a phrase that appears nowhere in the Constitution, all wrong.

    The phrase "separation of church and state" in fact appears nowhere in the Constitution but in a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1802 to a group of Danbury Baptists assuring them that the First Amendment prohibited Congress from establishing a national church, such as the Church of England.

    If you have real freedom of religion, then Sharia Law should be allowed in the US.

    Freedom from religion would make more sense.

    Freedom from religion is not in the COTUS.
    But neither is giving religious people special rights like they have now.
    Seems like both groups are ignorant on the Constitution.

    So religion shouldnt be a protected class?
    Muslims shouldnt be allowed to pray in the streets and block traffic?

    Sharia Law is a political - not religious - system. And, most important of all - it opposes the US Constitution. It has no place in this country.

    Christian beliefs being written into law are equally political to sharia law. They are equally opposed to the US constitution.

    Sharia is a central tenet of Islam. Islam should be allowed in the US. then so should Sharia.

    That would be unconstitutional. Unless this new SCOTUS gives the fundies all their wishes for “religious freedoms.”
