Constitution Party Discussion: Should Muslims have the same religious rights as other Americans?

Apparently, some elements in the Constitution Party are not very enthusiastic about extending constitutional protections to certain people.  From the Constitution party discussion forum:
There will come a time in this great country when we will have to question and decide: “Should Islam have the same religious freedom that the rest of us enjoy?” I know that Islam and those who want to see America destroyed will say “Yes”. They will quote the constitution and say “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

For some time this troubled me because it appeared that Islam can use our own constitution to take over America. However, I now do not believe Islam should have the same religious rights . . .

"However, I now do not believe Islam should have the same religious rights. Their intent is to eventually overpower our constitution and impose their own religious fascism (dictatorship). This is not acceptable. This is not the goal of other religions in America."

Wow, talk about paranoia.

Even I sometimes wonder about this. Nevertheless, in the CP discussion forum, we reached the conclusion that regardless of how one feels about Islam; religious liberty and the First Amendment must be respected first and foremost, regardless of personal feelings
