There is NO distinction between the First Amendment
and the Second.
One enforces, and reinforces the other. Either direction.

Media/Professors: Let's Implement Anti-Blasphemy Laws To Protect The Sanctity of Islam (And Only Islam)
Mike Barnicle: Hey, let's prosecute the guy who made that movie (which doesn't even seem to be the reason for the attacks) for murder.
UPenn "professor of religion:" You know, freedom of speech doesn't mean you're free to say whatever you believe.
What they are calling for is Anti-Blasphemy Laws, which Muslim countries have, and Western (Christian) countries do not.
And of course they're not calling for Anti-Blasphemy Laws for all religions; just the de facto state religion of the US, Islam.
Because if one religion -- and only one -- is afforded official state protection, that is the state religion.
