Or prohibiting the free wing-nuttery thereof

The First Amendment was written by the Founders to protect the free exercise of Christianity. They were making no effort to give special protections to Islam. Quite the contrary.
Bryan Fischer, spokesperson for the persecuted Christian minority.

No wonder the SPLC calls these buffoons a hate group. What "Family Research" Fischer is saying is that the federal government, in America, can prohibit all religions but Christianity (and once those are prohibited the Christians can get to work prohibiting one another's sects; for example, Michele Bachmann's Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod can lobby to prohibit Roman Catholicism on account of the Antichrist).

Pawlenty and other assorted conservative luminaries have guested on Fischer's radio show - cranking our Overton window way out toward crazytown.

(BTW, wait until you see Fischer explain just why the Indians deserved what they got.)

If my memory serves me right, this was an issue because there were people who wanted to exclude other relgions and beliefs. However, it was decided that we should allow them to see how we live and work in hopes that we can convert them to Christianity.

Well these "family values" outfits are sure making a convert out of me.
