The reason I am posting this is because of a situation that has occured within the USA military. A Chaplain( Religious leader within the military) got into trouble because he said " In Jesus' name " while praying over a funeral. That is a violation of the first amendment. For members who live in the USA, I have decided to show you your constitutional rights in case the US government ever tries to violate your rights.

Another issue arising from the Bill of Rights being possibly broken is the recent debate on the Mosque to be built in New York City, really close to Ground Zero.

Basically, your general rights will probably get messed with to some degree or another, it's the way of life at this point.
