Letter: Should 1st Amendment rights be protected?
letter to the editor 2

I have one question in response to Mr. Crawford’s column in the Forsyth Opinion section dated March 23. Why is it that the rights of LGBT to impose themselves on others overrides the religious 1st Amendment rights of faith based organizations?

The founders thought so highly of the need to protect religious rights against government oppression that those protections were enshrined in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution which was among the first ten that were necessary to secure the ratification of the original Constitution.

Nowhere in the Constitution are the rights of the extreme minority LGBT persons protected explicitly, yet elitist leftists in this nation seem to manage to place those rights above all others. How is this the case? How is it that the ‘free exercise thereof’ phrase is so often subordinated to the leftist agenda?
