If you read the First Amendment it does five things..
.It protects your religion
and it protects you from religion
and allows you to think.
It protects your right to speak about the things you thought about.
It protects the freedom of the press, which gives you access to others thoughts.
It protects your right to assemble and discuss with others those thoughts.
And it protects your right to petition the government for a redress of grievances those thoughts give rise to.
Many of our problems today come from not thinking!
