Clarify the First Amendment Petition

When our founders composed the Bill of Rights, they relied on their common concept of the meaning of words, including religion.

   Since the first amendment lacks a clear definition of religion, it is possible for criminals and would be warlords as well as seditious rebels to couch their enterprises in religious terms, publish a falsified divine revelation and claim protected status as a religion. 

   The time has come to solve that problem by amending the first amendment to exclude violent, seditious and mercenary cults from the penumbra of free exercise protection.

   I have placed a petition widget in the right sidebar. I urge you to sign and share the petition. Here is its text:

Whereas the door remains open for the protection of contrived religions and criminal or seditious enterprises disguised as religions, hiding under the penumbra of the free exercise clause, the first amendment is amended by appending:

Any institution which recruits or retains members by force, seeks to supplant this constitution with its canon law, promotes offensive warfare or was created for the personal emolument of its founder is not a religion protected under the free exercise clause and may be proscribed by law.

Thanks for the kind words, Syfullah-Al- Mehedi .

Every Muslim and Kaffir should read the Qur'an & hadith in his primary language. Links are provided to make it easy for English speakers.

http://www.altafsir.com/ is an essential resource for Arabic speakers. Tafsir al-Jalalayn is one of the books everyone should read.
