In 1787, our founding fathers signed the U.S Constitution. The First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion and freedom of speech to all citizens.
In a speech at the NRB International Media Convention, held in Nashville, Tenn., Judge Jeanine Pirro told the audience that she feels these freedoms are in danger.
Speaking to a capacity crowd on Tuesday night, the Fox News host said, “Although it seems that the protections that we have in the Constitution are protections that no one can take away from us, I want to tell you that they’re already being taken away. The irony of today’s liberalism that is accepting of anything and everything is that it is sanctioning discrimination against Christians.”
The group of Christian media reporters and executives were urged to “defend free speech.”
Pirro also stated that she felt evangelical Christians may soon lose their right to speak out on faith-related issues.
She called the First Amendment “the cornerstone of this nation” and said that free speech was a non-negotiable right, regardless of what the threats are or who makes them. Pirro said, “Your being offended is not an excuse for my free speech.”
Pirro also slammed the Obama administration for what she believes are their efforts to sacrifice free speech.
In her speech, Pirro went on to comment on the terror attack that took place in Garland, Texas, in 2015. She said, “You’re not going to tell Americans that we can’t draw a cartoon (of Muhammed) because it makes you feel bad.”
