At Worldnetdaily Chuck Norris has an opinion piece about atheists using the first amendment as the basis for taking prayer out of public meetings. He writes:
But these atheists make the same classic blunder about the First Amendment that the ACLU and others have been making for years. They reinterpret it in ways it was never intended to be understood. They actually use the very amendment that is intended to protect our religious and speech rights and liberties and turn it on its head and make it a law of prohibition against prayer. And in so doing, they bastardize America's founding documents and founders.He goes on to write:
The fact is these atheists have every right to voice their grievance – that is their First Amendment right to freedom of speech. But their request to restrict others' religious freedom is unconstitutional. And it is on that basis of the council members' First Amendment rights that they (and any other requests like this one across our land) ought to be forthright denied as unconstitutional. It is the constitutional right of all civic leaders and groups to include prayer as a constituent of their meetings.Take some time and read God Bless the atheists!
