Let's say that there is a guy that's a Mayan(The Tribe from Central America). Part of the guy's Religion is human Sacrifice, You sacrifice someone and you get arrested. During the trial you say It was part of you're religion, and The first admendmant protect's you. Should the person get go to jail for it.

One more, A guy named Jack is at the Superbowl that takes Place in San Francisco(his hometown), The score is 33-38,and the (wh)iners attempt a touchdown to win the game. They go for it and and nearly make it but cant. The Fan's Call "pass interference" but the ref sayes it wasnt. Jack screames out let's get him. The first admendmant protect's it, or does it. The ref is killed when many broken bottles hit him in the head. Can Jack get away with it, saying it's freedom of speech?

Excuse any spelling errors.

Personal freedoms are limited in that they cannot infringe upon the rights of others.

Freedom of speech doesn't mean that you can slader someone or that you can incite a crowd to murder. It also doesn't protect you from being a murderer. The Mayan's best defense would be insanity in even thinking that that's his religion, I think.

freedom of religion doesn't give you carte blanche to commit illegal acts

freedom of speech, ditto.

he can practice his religion as long as he doesn't break the law, i.e. murder others.

freedom of speech means that the government can not impeed on your expression as long as it doesn't endanger others.
the classic "Fire" in the movies and what not.

in both cases, they would get the book thrown at them.

Regardless of how her feel about her political views, she was trying to do good things. She was trying to bring more peace to the world, woefully misguided though she might have been.
