Freedom of Religion and the Social Contract

The events of the last week have brought to our attention the freedoms enunciated in the First Amendment to the US Constitution, and how other jurisdictions don't extend the same protections. The Left is now calling upon suppressing freedom of speech that is "offensive" to Muslims. The irony is that they have it exactly backwards. If anyone's freedom of speech/religion deserves to be abridged, it's the Muslims themselves.
The First Amendment says two things about religion:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
I see these two as a package deal: The Episcopalians agreed not to try to be the official state religion in exchange for the Catholics not having Inquisitions to punish heretics, etc. To participate in religious liberty, your religion has to allow that same liberty to others. If you believe you have the right to use violence against those who disagree with you, then we have the right to use violence to stop you.

National Empty Chair Day

Put an empty chair on your front lawn. Decorate it if you wish. And consider leaving it out until election day.

Note to GOP candidates: Have an empty chair on stage with you at every appearance from now on. You don't need to say a word about it. You might just, when referring to the current Administration's policies, allow your eyes to flick to the empty chair for just a moment. Have fun with it.

Saul Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals that ridicule is a very potent weapon, because it can't be refuted. I say it's past time for us to use it against the radicals.
