An essay is presented on the debates on national security, the First Amendment, and private discrimination. It says that a survey on the debates and data on Muslim America suggests the rise of ambient public animus and further legal enactment increase. It argues that a zero-sum trade-off between security and equality does not exist. It adds that the controversies in the role of religion in the society and national politics may affect the offered protection of the First Amendment provisions.
