ACLU: AMERICAN CHRISTIAN LOATHERS UNION
By Marsha West
September 1, 2006
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 don’t 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 someone’s hostile to God they’re called anti-Christs.
Thanks to groups like the ACLU and the liberal judges that legislate from the bench, traditions we’ve held in this country for over 200 years are suddenly deemed unconstitutional. The far-Left won’t 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 who’s in full frontal view. The man is Moses and he’s 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; they’re 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 god?thhe god of the radical Left -- secular humanism!
And that’s not all they’re up to.
If that’s not bad enough, the ACLU has challenged state and federal efforts to pass Jessica’s law, a piece of legislation that calls for more rigorous tracking of convicted sex offenders.
But here’s 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 News’s Bill O’Reilly, NAMBLA’s 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 ACLU’s attorneys are attempting to remove religious symbols from the public square. They’re hostile to the Boy Scouts, whose only crime is turning boys into men. They’re trying to thwart Jessica’s law. They’re 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. What’s wrong with this picture?
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.”
