You accused others of doing a selective reading of the law, but it seems you are doing it as well.

You know the First Amendment applies to state governments as well, right?

Well the Constitution limits what Congress can do in this case. And also in this case, this is Tennessee so they are bound by their state constitution. Regardless of whether or not I agree with this, this is the business of TN and her residents.

consider women as your property
and rape them because they think they own them.
and killing your own children because they date non muslims.

Yeah that is crap. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. I think this prohibits people from practicaly, practicing Islam.
Oh, and btw, I am a christian, so not all christians are religious nuts, or intolerant of anyone elses religion.

Quran (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah." There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not. However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of "persecution" (a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that fighting may persist until "religion is for Allah." The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.
--This describes protecting your community.
Quran (2:244) - "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."
--This can and does apply to every faith universally as every follower of every faith is some type of soldier of God.
Quran (2:216) - "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not." Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding caravans with this verse.
--Violence is acceptable when your community and centuries of tradition is threatened and does apply to other faiths as well.
Quran (3:56) - "As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help."
--All this does is mandate religious service for all. Makes it law to attend faith services.
Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority".
This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be 'joining companions to Allah').
--No it does not and yet another that can apply to all other faiths.
Quran (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."
The martyrs of Islam are unlike the early Christians, led meekly to the slaughter. These Muslims are killed in battle, as they attempt to inflict death and destruction for the cause of Allah. Here is the theological basis for today's suicide bombers.
--It is not, it is the promise of 72 Virgins which is absolute hogwash.
Quran (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"
--That same thinking could and does apply to other faiths as well/
Quran (4:89) - "They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks."
--This allows other faiths to support and endorse this. Yet again, this applies to other faiths as well.
And im only posting a small amount...

This, coming from the guy who name drops the constitution every chance he gets?
Way to be a Cafeteria Conservative, picking and choosing what you want to hear from it. What happens to limited government that didn't step into people's lives?
