The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has been called the most dangerous organization in America. And rightly so.
The ACLU is a secular organization that exploits the law to impose their anti-God agenda. Its lawyers litigate lawsuits that aim to take away our Constitutional right to freedom of religion. The ACLU wants to erase any mention of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob found in public places. They have fought to remove "One nation, under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, they want to erase "In God we trust" from our currency and rid the country of all religious displays such as the Ten Commandments, Christian holiday displays and state mottos. They do this under the guise of the so-called wall of separation of church and state, or what has come to be known as the establishment-clause of the First Amendment. What is the ACLU's position on church-state separation? There shall be no mention of God on public property. Period.
Courts, legal scholars and historians have quarreled over the true meaning of the establishment-clause ever since the Bill of Rights was ratified. So it is continually evolving as each new case is brought before the court.
The ACLU has been known to use fear, intimidation, and disinformation. As a result many public officials and educational leaders mistakenly believe that they have no choice but to silence any form of Christian religious expression. ACLU lawyers are fully aware that most government schools dont have the funds to fight expensive lawsuits so they often get what they want. The attorneys who agree to take on these lawsuits are hostile to God. In the Bible when someones hostile to God theyre called anti-Christs.
Thanks to groups like the ACLU and the liberal judges that legislate from the bench, traditions weve held in this country for over 200 years are suddenly deemed unconstitutional. The far-Left wont rest until God has been driven out of the public square! This is a ludicrous undertaking considering all the religious symbols on government structures throughout the U.S. Many of these symbols have been placed on prestigious government buildings -- including the Supreme Court!
Speaking of the Supreme Court, near the top of the building is a row of the world's lawgivers. Each person is facing a man in the middle whos in full frontal view. The man is Moses and hes holding the Ten Commandments! As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom the Ten Commandments is engraved on the lower portion of two massive oak doors. The wall directly above where the Supreme Court judges sit is a display of the Ten Commandments! The first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said, "Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."
But I digress.
In America we have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. Religious symbols in the public square are no threat to our freedom; theyre simply reminders of our heritage and the foundation on which our county was built.
The Boy Scouts are not the enemy of America, yet they are vilified and viciously attacked by the ACLU. Why? The unfortunate answer is that the Scouts are a religious organization.
Veterans and the memorials that pay tribute to their service to this country are not the enemies of America, yet the ACLU wants those memorials removed if there is any mention of God on them. Why? Because their aim is for Americans to worship another godthe god of the radical Left -- secular humanism!
And thats not all theyre up to. In Vermont, the ACLU advocated for the removal of convicted child molesters names from public record, a dangerous and ill-conceived position that would facilitate the open, undetectable movement of vicious criminals and leave everyone in their pathespecially childrenin grave danger. It seems that the ACLU is more concerned with the rights of convicted felons than the rights of innocent, law-abiding citizens. Alex Fitzsimmons
If thats not bad enough, the ACLU has challenged state and federal efforts to pass Jessicas law, a piece of legislation that calls for more rigorous tracking of convicted sex offenders. If passed, child predators will find themselves in the slammer for twenty-five years.
But heres the most surprising thing of all. The ACLU is defending the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), a group of evil predators that advocates sex between grown men and innocent little boys. According to Fox Newss Bill OReilly, NAMBLAs website posted techniques designed to lure boys into having sex with men and also supplied information on what an adult should do if caught."
The ACLUs attorneys are attempting to remove religious symbols from the public square. Theyre hostile to the Boy Scouts, whose only crime is turning boys into men. Theyre trying to thwart Jessicas law. Theyre fighting to remove the names of child rapists from public record. But they offer their services to defend the freedom of speech and association rights of NAMBLA, a group of sexual deviates whose goal is the abolition of age-of-consent laws that classify sex with schoolboys as rape. Whats wrong with this picture?
As Deroy Murdock so aptly put it, It would be nice to see NAMBLA siphon its own bank account rather than the ACLU's to justify its evil ways. The ACLU decides for itself where to devote its finite resources. Hence, its leaders freely chose to stand with cheerleaders for pederasty while torpedoing those who mentor rather than rape little boys.
If caught the "adult" pervert should commit suicide.
Not really; the target of most of their attacks seems to be Jesus Christ and His New Testament followers. Not that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob isn't the same "Father" that Christ prayed to and is only the Son of, but how often do we hear mention of Abraham and the Old Testament in the cases which the ACLU brings suit?
Whether it's the prayer that Jesus taught us, (the Lord's Prayers), being banned from schools, or Christian prayer groups being banned from the public, or the Manger scene being banned from public property, or "Christmas" being banned from schools and forcibly replaced with "Winter Holiday Season", the target is almost always Our Blessed Lord and Saviour. Every once in a while they may target an O/T icon, such as the Ten Commandments, but keep in mind that Jesus Christ also taught us to obey those very same Commandments, (Mark 10:19). The main target of the ACLU is not Abraham or Moses or any of the Prophets. Neither is it Mohammed or Buddha, it is Jesus Christ and anything and everything associated with Him.
ACLU=American Commie Liberal Union
I always liked another variation I first saw on FR: "Anti Christian Lawyers Union"
Isn't there something in civil rights legislation that requires the govt. to pay legal fees even if the case fails? Perhaps the ACLU is taxpayer-funded, after all.
