ACLU not all good

Defenders of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) tried to convince your readers that their organization is “all about fairness” and “tolerance.” They neglected to mention the ACLU’s record of relentless assault on marriage, the Ten Commandments, the Cross and Christian values. Lawsuits by the ACLU show a double standard: they attack religion but defend pornographers and “artists” who insult Christ and His church.

The ACLU uses certain federal judges to impose its own religion of secular humanism/atheism on others. The argument the ACLU lawyers use is the Establishment Clause with emphasis on “the constitutional separation of church and state.” None of these words – “separation,” “church” or “state” – are in the First Amendment. The Free Exercise Clause (of religion) is ignored completely.

Current Chief Justice William Rehnquist explains: “The Establishment Clause did not require government neutrality between religion and irreligion nor did it prohibit the Federal Government from providing nondiscriminatory aid to religion. There is simply no historical foundation for the proposition that the Framers intended to build a ‘wall of separation’ between church and state. Such interpretation is a fiction and mockery of the First Amendment.”
