In the United States, the religious civil liberties are guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The constant barrage of false attacks upon President Obama's religion should be an embarrassment to this publication. However, this publication continues to allow falsehoods to be published. Historically, this was very similar to how the newspapers in Salem, Massachusetts did nothing to stop the witch hunts.
