American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer falsely claimed on May 1 that only Christianity is protected under the First Amendment, but other non-Christian religions such as Judaism are not.
Fischer was ranting about a North Carolina inmate who is suing for the right to practice Wicca in jail, notes Right Wing Watch:
The blunt, simple, direct, straightforward answer is that Wiccans do not have First Amendment rights, nor do Muslims, nor do Jews, nor do Native Americans, nor do Rastafarians, nor do any practitioners of any other religion other than Christianity.
Whatever the First Amendment is about, whatever protections it extends in the federal Constitution, those were just for Christianity. Christianity has First Amendment rights under the federal Constitution, no other religion does.
