Congress shall make no law respecting an establish-ment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. --First Amendment, Bill of Rights, U.S. Constitution
I was rather disgusted when I saw this poll on AZ Central this morning. It seems that nearly half of those polled don’t believe in the right to free speech. This is why our country is being sold out to the Marxists, Communists and “Obamanistas“. Wake up people! You are nailing your own coffins shut. I wouldn’t mind so much but your foolishly and recklessly pounding nails in my coffin as well.
I don’t care if it’s a religious group standing up for what they believe in, PETA wanting to “save the rats” in NYC or the NSM protesting against illegal immigration in front of the State Capitol in Phoenix. We ALL have the RIGHT to express our views. Our Founding Fathers shed and spilled blood for all of us to have and exercise that right. I guess nearly half of those polled don’t know the meaning of freedom. Perhaps, they don’t deserve to have and enjoy freedom if they are so willing to give it up.
As Americans, we are constitutionally guaranteed the right to protest anything we damn well please.
Christian group wages fight against censorship on campus
At a sprawling, glass-and-brick office complex in north Scottsdale, a dozen or so attorneys and colleagues gather each morning in a dim, ornate room to pray.
The group of Christians is seeking God's guidance in an ongoing quest to preserve family values and freedom of religious expression.
The Poll Question:

The question was very simple, yet some of the comments indicated that the question was not well understood. I guess people also need to work on their reading comprehension skills as well. Although the separation of church from state is also constitutionally guaranteed, that had nothing to do with the poll question. The key words were "right to protest".
Many of the people posting in the comment section didn’t have a clue either. The most intelligent comment came from a person identified as “Tim6241” He said, “Wake up Americans! Your about to lose what’s left of your freedoms.” Tim is absolutely right. It’s plainly obvious that many of my fellow “Americans” are worthless and weak.
