As a true conservative I am a self described expert in the narrow field of how to argue with a liberal and win. What we conservatives understand is this; Conservatives argue ideology based upon facts. Liberals argue emotion. Today’s subject of dissertation will exhibit for all who can string syllabics into coherent thought just how the ACLU has set about to destroy Christianity and the American traditions enshrined in the founding of this country. A constant truism when arguing with a liberal is that the angrier a liberal gets, during a debate, the more he realizes his position has no merit. The liberal playbook; when they realize the argument/debate is lost is to pull out their trump card and accuse all who disagree with them of being racist, bigoted, biased, and sexist, filled with hate, homophobes or just plain idiot rubes. You see, liberals are convinced that they are the smartest people in the world and they are truly insulted when a mere conservative dares to proffer an opposing view. This is done to marginalize conservatives and remove them from the debate arena. Make no mistake, we conservatives will not allow ourselves to be marginalized. You can take that to your liberal bank.
I will now demonstrate beyond all certainty that the ACLU has declared war on Christianity and these forthcoming revelations are beyond reproach. What is truly sad and indicative of the polarization of our society is that whatever evidence I provide; “even if irrefutable” will promptly be ignored by the left. Regardless, hope springs eternal and conservatives are by nature, optimists.
The ACLU was founded by a Communist, with communist ideals, communist goals, and they continue to impose a Communist like agenda on America daily. The founder of the ACLU, Roger Baldwin stated clearly… “My chief aversion is the system of greed, private profit, privilege and violence which makes up the control of the world today, and which has brought it to the tragic crisis of unprecedented hunger and unemployment Therefore, I am for Socialism, disarmament and ultimately, for the abolishing of the State itself, I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.”
This revelation on its face would be, “in all intellectual circles” game, set and match. Yet, draw near and prepare to be dazzled with this soon to be award winning composition, for in this endeavor, with talent on loan from Rush, I draw inspiration from the almighty and have only just begun.
Federal Judge Phyllis Hamilton, “a Clinton appointee” recently upheld a ruling requiring seventh-grade students to pretend they're Muslims, wear Islamic garb, memorize verses from the Quran, pray to Allah and even to play "jihad games" in California public schools.(WND)
The ACLU has refused to comment on the ruling except to say they find, “nothing actionable” in the ruling. Translation: the ACLU doesn’t have a problem with it. If California public schools were requiring students to memorize Bible verses the ACLU would have lawyers kicking down the school doors and would be all over local school boards like Rosie O’Donnell on a baked ham. You just know they would.
In 1989 the ACLU began a crusade to remove the Mount Soledad Cross located in the center of a Korean War Memorial in San Diego, California. The Cross was erected in 1954. While continuing a battle to have the Cross removed they have defended Muslims who have demanded, “Foot Basins” in airports, football stadiums and other public places. Foot Basins are used by Muslims in preparation for prayer. "Why are we constructing places of worship for them inside our airports?" said an airport official who requested anonymity. "Why are we catering to their rituals? We don't do it for any other religion."(WND) As Christians, let’s ask airport officials for a chapel and see how long it takes for the ACLU to come to our aid. Waiting……….waiting……..
While absolutely berating pharmacists, who, “because of religious convictions” have refused to sell “Levonelle”, commonly referred to as the morning after pill. The ACLU defends Muslim taxi drivers who have refused to carry passengers who have been drinking alcohol or possess alcohol. The ACLU has even gone as far as to defend the rights of Muslim taxi drivers to refuse to carry blind patrons who avail themselves of a Seeing Eye dog. The Islamic religion considers dogs unclean. If Timmy’s in the well does it matter if Lassie has had a bath? In a related case, it wasn’t a surprise when the ACLU came to the defense of Muslims employed at Target stores who refused to scan pork products. Got Bacon?
At this point I imagine liberal foreheads to be throbbing and I know just how to push them over the edge. Abortion, utter the word and liberals go running for a soapbox. In 1973 the United States Supreme Court found a right to privacy in the constitution where one did not exist. Since then over 40 million abortions have been performed. Abortion angers conservatives on two fronts. We believe abortion to be immoral and an adulteration of our constitution.
The ACLU, “with a nod from the courts” has taken abortion out of the public debate, “or so they thought” and relegated this most important decision to nine justices and not to the people. Now, the ACLU is going after the tax exempt status of churches who dare speak out against abortion on moral grounds, calling such speech political. In 1987, the ACLU Foundation and the New York Civil Liberties Union filed an amicus brief in support of Abortion Rights Mobilization to secure standing in a suit challenging the tax exempt status of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church was charged with violating its tax-exempt status by taking a stand against abortion. This is important and deserving of explanation. First the ACLU takes a pro-abortion stance and asks for judicial relief insomuch as abortion is a legal question to be removed from the political debate. After a Supreme Court affirmation of this argument the ACLU reverses itself and makes the wild claim that abortion is a political topic and those who would engage in the abortion debate are involved in political speech. That takes chutzpah folks.
The evidence is overwhelming and I could continue to list it for days. The ACLU is anti-Christianity and anti-American. There can be no other conclusion and those who would argue differently are either an order of French fries short of a happy meal of need to have their medications refilled.Conservative Springfield 16JUL08
