I don't see how fundamentalism and religious parody are compatible.

Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

Anyone in America suggesting immigrants might not relate to the Constitution would probably be laughed at.  "If they don't like the Constitution, there's the door."
You don't come to America if you don't like our Constitution.  If you do no one here except maybe a few Berkeley professors will have any sympathy for your self-inflicted plight.  I think before you're allowed in you even have to take some kind of oath to it.
You guys need a Constitution.  Seriously.

Edit: used the "quote" thingy
