No protection for Islam? How about Baptists?

No protection for Islam? How about Baptists?

I write to support the letter about eliminating the constitutional protection of Islam. Further, I personally think we should ban the Baptists, as well. Talk about a threat to the early Republic: Look at our early history. Those same guys establishing the country weren't Baptists and many early Baptists were labeled threats to communities and were banned. Why, here in Fredericksburg, around the turn of the 19th century, they left, went to Kentucky and began distilling bourbon, for goodness sake.

Finally, one need only look at the use of our precious water that Baptists use in their baptism rites. In the Methodist church, we conserve water: We only sprinkle. Tomorrow, well: Look out Presbyterians.
