It's 45 words, you can read as below:

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."

This opening amendment was the basis for all the freedom and democracy exists in the US. In a brief paragraph, a totally new type of government was formed.

Not unless the first amendment to the Constitution is abolished. Under the First Amendment of the Constitution, it cannot technically be outlawed. Many religions have been portrayed by the media and others to be violent, overly conservative, brutal, and many other traits that lead people to see many religions in ways they are not. Religion cannot be outlawed, but it can certainly be misunderstood and discouraged.
