ACLU attacks tradition

When our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they refrained from establishing an official religion. They favored the principle of religious freedom and expression. People learned to tolerate and respect different religions, eve nonbelievers; until recently when judicial activism upset the peaceful coexistence.

The Fathers did not dream that a public mention of God should not be allowed. But this is what the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is doing! With help of activist judges and using our taxpayers money, the ACLU is behind a legal jihad against any public expression of Christian faith in America.

Municipalities have been threatened by ACLU with lawsuits if they displayed a Nativity scene. The Boy Scouts, the Pledge of Allegiance, the institution of the family, the pro-life groups are being harassed and prosecuted by the ACLU for God’s name. In accord, the Target stores refused the Salvation Army on its premises. Macy’s stores prohibited the use of word “Christmas.” The intensity of attacks on Christian traditions is alarming. But in the end the Almighty God will prevail!
