American Christian fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals have a radical view of religious freedom under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It is an absolutist view of the First Amendment that basically says: “I demand absolute religious freedom for me—and if that hurts someone else—then I do not give a damn.” This is all about wedding cakes for gay marriages.

This may be taken as a prima facie example of how Christian fundamentalism, conservative evangelicalism, and the Religious Right plan to use the First Amendment to make war on the ordinary American Christian citizens and nonChristian citizens they regard as the enemies of God.
