Freedom from Religion

The Anti-Christian Litigation Underwriters

When I was younger a fellow student asked if I would be interested in joining the American Civil Liberties Union. They were promoting 'First Amendment Rights' so I took a pamphlet. Of course I made the 'mistake' of reading some of their literature and told my friend that there was no way in a very hot place that I could EVER join the ACLU.

The ACLU was founded ninety years ago by Roger Baldwin. He was a socialist thinker who said things like: "America must follow the example of Stalin's Soviet Union where greater freedoms exist than anywhere else in the world". Wow, I never would have known from the history I read!

Knowing America would never follow the path to 'social u[dys]topia because of her Judeo-Christian foundations, Baldwin set out to diminish the influence of Christianity in America.

For 80 years the ACLU has twisted the Constitution to exclude Christianity from the public square and the public discourse. That sense of mission is what drives the endless stream of lawsuits against prayer and Christian expression. That is why your kid's 'religious' message is excluded from the poster contest. That's why the school 'Winter Holiday' assembly is devoid of sacred traditional music. Thankfully there is the Alliance Defense Fund [click to read] which was founded to counter this destructive movement.
