First Amendment text: 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.

In other words... The First Amendment is designed to protect basic freedoms. It protects freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to assemble, and freedom to petition the government. It keeps the government from creating an official religion. "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 means that Congress is not allowed to establish an official state religion, or infringe upon citizens' freedom of religion, speech, press, petition, or peaceful assembly.
