"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 to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.". <br><br>  What the Ferguson protestors are doing is exactly what democracy looks like in action as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Inexplicably, a majority of conservatives oppose the protests in Ferguson.<br><br>For a conservative to oppose such activities would be like if someone claimed to be the biggest Shakespeare fan in the world, but then loudly opposed a local theater troupe staging a performance of Hamlet.

10 Bible Verses Violated by the Republican Party
