    I think the ACLU does a lot of good.They not only defend Christians but many others who have had their Civil Liberties violated.

    Boy... you and your twist on words! I remember the free publications from a campaign they started during the Clinton era no less, explaining the amendments, personal rights, etc. Most of the people I can't stand hate the ACLU, so they are OK with me.

    Good info. I kind of believed they were liberal, but had honestly not done the research. Will look more closely at them. I have a feeling that these represents a small percentage of there overall cases, but that may be my bias talking.

    Remember, this country was based on freedom of religion. It's their religion to make sure no one else has freedom of religion, so we have to give them what they want... because it's their religion.

    remember country based freedom religion religion freedom religion religion

    Maintaining a political balance in America is crucial to its survival. The ACLU also defends gays, atheists and all forms of free speech. The head of the ACLU is gay, by the way.

    ACLU Chairman :"We want to help you express your freedom of speech"

    WBC Preacher:"That's is a great thing your trying to do for us! but god still hates fags like you! and your going to burn in hell for that"

    ACLU Chairman:"Thats what my mom told me yesterday after I told her the dress she was wearing was ugly"

    Yeah well, from the e mail I get from him, he's a very balanced individual. Not the least bit idiotic about what he's doing. He has the ability to look at the big picture and consider it.
  • freedom... Keen To... 2009/07/19 04:53:32
    I believe it I seen the interviews he has had with people and he looks sane for the most part.
