Tea Party: Religious Bullying is Constitutional

Posted in news by reasonfreely on June 9, 2010

Aside from the religious leaders voicing support was Danita Kilcullen, the founder and organizer of the Tea Party in Fort Lauderdale. She vows to get the Tea Party behind the suspended teachers.

“Because it’s a breach of the First Amendment and because we so strongly believe in the Constitution in the United States of America,” Kilcullen said.

And what about the atheist teacher’s first amendments rights?

“Yea, but she hasn’t been punished for speaking out yet,” Kilcullen said. (NBC)

Let me get this straight…  You think it’s protected religious speech to sprinkle holy water on a nonbeliever in front of a classroom of students?  You think that the constitution supports bullying someone of a different religious view?   Because that seems to be the opposite of the intent of the first amendment.

Kilcullen demonstrates the ignorance of the Tea Party on constitutional issues.

In other news, I need to write something that’s not just newsfilter blogging.
