The Decline Of The Secular State
SEE HERE The United States is not supposed to establish a religion. Freedom of speech includes the right to speak in ways that are unpopular to various groups. I believe that the Koran, for example, is not the revealed word of God. I don't think God had anything to do with it. I think the same about the sacred books of the Mormons. I have no particular problem with them believing whatever they want to that doesn't interfere with my rights. Islam is a religion that supports policies that are totally inconsistent with a secular state. Surrendering to Muslim demands is a form of religious establishment. We have no obligation to expurgate documents so that Muslims will like them or Christians would like them or Mormons or Jews would like them. Protected speech and writings include hate speech ... sorry liberal idiots. The problem is that one man's "hate speech" is another man's divine revelation. Sorry but facts don't change because someone doesn't like them.
