I have had several posts over the last several years talking about the freedoms that we as Americans use to have. Freedoms that we don’t have anymore. And the main culprit on this loss, is the ACLU. Yes my friends, I said the Americans Civil Liberties Union.
Despite, it’s calling itself the ‘nation’s guardian of liberty’ which almost makes me throw up every time I hear them say that, what the ACLU has actually been doing is doing everything they can to eliminnate the freedoms of most all of American citizens.
This is not something that I alone say, this was said by Alan Sears, a former federal procecutor in the U.S. Department of Justice during the Reagan administration years. He now serves as president and general counsel of the Alliance Defense fund, henceforth called ADF here in this post. They are the nations largest liberty legal alliance.
One thing that I have never taken lightly is the abiilty of the ACLU to destroy liberties that you and I as Americans hold dear. And one need only to look into the past century to see all the damage they have done. I can even give some examples of this blatant disregard for the average American’s rights.
As the ACLU vs. America documents, one of the ACLU’s primary targets is Our First Liberty—religious freedom. Under its leadership, secular leftists scored a number of courtroom victories that have advanced their plank in the agenda of stripping the American public of their rights and liberties.
Two of the most notorious, Engel vs. Vitale and School District of Abington Township, Pennsylvania, et al. vs Schempp et al., outlawed prayer and the devotional reading of Scripture in public schools in 1963.
You think that was enough? Just wait. There was more.
The ACLU since, has used those rulings as a legal sledgehammer in America’s public schools to pound out graduation invocations, pregame voluntary prayer for athletic teams, and even ‘moments of silence.’
But my friends, the school children are not the only targets of their campaign against America. The ACLU has also threatened politicians, cities and towns, and even entire legislatures with lawsuits for the main reason to get rid of official prayer.
In one case in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana, the attorneys with the ACLU demanded ‘jail time for any person who prayed in a manner they disapproved of. Did you get that people? The actually had the nerve to demand that they could get jailed, anyone who prayed in a way that they didn’t like. Now isn’t that just special? Thankfully, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in August of 2007, threw out the lawsuit against the School District. But, that was not the end. No my friends, the ACLU has not given up at all. They have filed a new lawsuit against the school district. They just couldn’t let the courts decision stand. To the ACLU, the U.S. Courts do not hold enough power to make laws that are good for America. Got that people? And, there is more.
In South Carolina and Virginia, they used the threat of a lawsuit against local government entities to silence prayer “in Jesus’ name”. The towns caved in to the ACLU’s demand. However, municipalities in Louisiana, North Carolina and Pennsylvania stood up to the ACLU’s attempt at “fear and intimidation, and disinformation” and they voted to adopt model prayer policies written by the ADF attorneys.
While opposing Christian prayers, the ACLU filed suit in Virginia demanding a Wiccan witch be allowed to open a town meeting with her for of prayer. In other words people, it is just as I have been saying over the last several years. The ACLU doesn’t believe in God and wishes Him out of our society ….. completely. But, the message here is clear. Christianity and Orthodox Judaism are out, but Wiccanism is fine. This is not the end of this people. The ACLU wants to destroy the liberties that we hold dear, and they do not care what the people want. They are just like the liberals (our democrats and our media and hollywood), who do not care about what the American people want. They only care about what they want. And that is, to get rid of our freedoms and change America into a country that is a fraction of the nation we started out as, or as we are now.
There is more here people, but this post is getting longer than I thought I wanted to get, but if you go to http://www.google.com, and google the Alliance Defense Fund, and see what you come up with. I think that you will be pleasantly surprised to find out, that they are the ones on our side. NOT THE ACLU. And in our government, the party that supports the ACLU is none other than the Democrats. Obama is one of the supporters. We have to stop this….before it gets too late. We need to wake up and smell the coffee…..before we find ourselves unable to get the lost freedoms back, and unable to stop the loss of more. We are at a precipice, and this is something that HAS to be stopped.
