Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.

An excerpt, yes. Out of context? No.

Those two clauses, out of a total of Five, are the first two in the First Amendment. They have a reason, a purpose for being present, and a meaning.

Let us suppose for a moment, that I am an elected offal, err official. I took an oath, whereupon I swore to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Let us further suppose that I, as said elected offal, presented a bill, that restricted ones right to engage in any type of religious anything, in the name of Separation of Church and State. An oxymoron? Or do I miss a crucial point here? What of Freedom of Speech? Do not the first two clauses go hand in hand? If I restrict one, do I not restrict the other?

Any comments on this? Sound off, if you dare...
