This quote stunned me with its breathtaking irony. Hipsters of the world, you have been outdone. You may as well put down your PBR, take off your flannel shirts, and declare once and for all that you don't actually like the Decemberists that much, because Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association has beaten you for all time:
Permits should not be granted to build even one more mosque in the United States of America ... Because of this subversive ideology, Muslims cannot claim religious freedom protections under the First Amendment. They are currently using First Amendment freedoms to make plans to destroy the First Amendment altogether. There is no such thing as freedom of religion in Islam, and it is sheer and utter folly for Americans to delude themselves into thinking otherwise.
Yes, he's seriously suggested that we destroy the First Amendment in order to protect it. Presumably, so those subversive Muslims can't do it first.

Imagine applying this approach to crime prevention. Worried that that guy at the end of the bar might start a fight with you? Punch yourself in the face! That will totally show him. About to walk through a high crime area? Burn all your money! Does gun violence scare you? SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE FACE!

But of course! It's the same sort of logic that decides it better to destroy the world, than let the bad guys do it first.

In order to protect freedom, one must lock it up in a safe place. *nods*
