The Louie Gohmert Bible Challenge

Yesterday in Congress, Louie Gohmert, a representative from Texas, declared the following:

“The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.”

Is this true? Prove it. Here’s the Louie Gohmert Bible Challenge for today:

Go to the Christian Bible and show me in which part of the books of Exodus, Matthew, Isaiah or the writings of Paul the following aspects of the Bill of Rights are discussed:

– Free speech
– Freedom of religion
– Freedom of the press
– Protection from unreasonable search and seizure
– Protection from double jeopardy
– Freedom from quartering soldiers
– The right to a jury trial
– A ban on excessive bail
