So, I heard someone on Fox News O'Rielly program call the Muslims a "protected species."

Much how after September 2001 many Muslims were targeted, many Arabic people were targeted just for having a similar name, this incident in Ft. Hood is going to spurn the same reactions out of people. The religious indignation that we have is astounding. And how a radical view of a religion ends up totally ruining any good word that can be taught and lived.

First Amendment - "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment 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."

Did we not come to America for our religious freedoms, to escape the pursecutions. Was the Gun Powder plot in 1605, that is being falsely used by some political agents for their fight against healthcare reform, not a reaction to the discrimination against English Catholics.

I may not be religious anymore but I do believe in the tenants of our founding and the freedoms that we offer. We should defend ourselves against the extremist viewpoints of every religion and be open to the freedoms allowed for someone to worship their Lord.
