Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Just in case you are not up on the Constitution or do not believe this is so, here are the necessary Governmental links to prove my accuracy:
