A different point on that circus in Gitmo

The one you've heard about where the terrorists female lawyer demanded that all females be ...bagged.

Cheryl Bormann, a lawyer for Mr. bin Attash, was dressed in an abaya, a loosefitting garment worn by observant Muslim women, leaving only her face exposed, and suggested that women on the prosecution team follow her example. They should dress modestly "so that our clients are not forced to not look at the prosecution for fear of committing a sin under their faith," Ms. Bormann said.

I guess MZZZ. Bormann, that it never occurred to a LIBERAL Attorney- that YOU as part of the .GOV are now advocating throwing out the First Amendment protections of religion, did it?

Remember what it says?

Amendment I

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.

So this government agent is trying to force American citizens to observe the religious dress  customs against their will? That a .GOV functionary is trying to force non moslims to dress like them -to go against their own religious beliefs to accommodate a select religion?

first amendment: an overview

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference. See U.S. Const. amend. I. Freedom of expression consists of the rights to freedom of speech, press, assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and the implied rights of association and belief. The Supreme Court interprets the extent of the protection afforded to these rights. The First Amendment has been interpreted by the Court as applying to the entire federal government even though it is only expressly applicable to Congress. Furthermore, the Court has interpreted, the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as protecting the rights in the First Amendment from interference by state governments. See U.S. Const. amend. XIV.
Two clauses in the First Amendment guarantee freedom of religion. The establishment clause prohibits the government from passing legislation to establish an official religion or preferring one religion over another.
