Rights are guaranteed, not restricted


If my faith were to prohibit eating meat on Friday, would it be right to make it illegal for everyone. If my religion was against wearing the color red, would it be ok to pass a Constitutional Amendment that outlaws wearing red. If my wife becomes ill, should you pass a law that keeps me from being present at this very personal time of passage. Is it ok to restrict my choice to live where I want by passing a law that says only “the right people” will be allowed to live here.
