The Constitutional protection of religion – the freedom of religion – assumes that all religions stand for the basic values enumerated in the USA Constitution.

Our Founders never imagined that a religion would encourage the killing and/or mutilation of its nonbelievers. But Islam advocates just that.

I understand many of our politicians claim that only radical Muslims endorse killing and mutilation. Yet even moderate Muslims look the other way and/or refuse to condemn their violent brothers.

It’s naïve and imprudent to extend freedom of religion to Muslims when their primary document – the Koran – advocates killing and mutilation of people of other faiths.

Clearly, a constitutional amendment is needed to assure freedom of nonviolent, peaceful and tolerant religions.  Islam’s commitment to radical, first-millennium violence disqualifies it from Constitutional protection.
