    I haven't seen too many cases they've joined in on that include "confiscation of the properties of all emigrants and rebels."

    The reason that the ACLU protected the speech of communists was that the American government had a fairly strong bias towards prosecuting communists during that period.

    The aspect you're not appreciating is that by protecting the most offensive speech, or the most unpleasant of religions, is that it means the rights of everyone else to say or believe what they wish are that much safer. For a person with the user name "Flame Thrower" that should be doubly appreciated.
    The reason why the ACLU protects communists is because the ACLU goals are mostly communist. Free speech was just an excuse to allow their fellow-traveler Communists to stay active. As the US still barely clings to the US Constitution, the ACLU has not had a confiscation of rebel properties case to deal with. This happen with Reconstuction, but the Communist ACLU didn't arrive until the 20th century.

    So bad had been the ACLU in aiding and abetting American communists that various legislative committees, federal and state, considered whether it was a communist front. The 1943 California Senate Fact-Finding Committee on Un-American Activities reported that the ACLU "may be definitely classed as a communist front." The committee added that "at least 90 percent of its [the ACLU's] efforts are expended on behalf of communists who come into conflict with the law." That 90-percent figure was consistent with a major report produced by Congress a decade earlier, January 17, 1931.

    The ACLU's Not-So-Holy Trinity | The American Spectator!

    Now as the agenda of all commies is for absolute control of public education by the government and party, one of their most famous cases was Brown vs Board of Education. This case was vital to destroying the freedom of US citizens to run their own school districts, allow school prayer and control the content of what was taught.

    You are either a big fan of the ACLU, or a memeber. Sad.

    It could be mockery as well. I can't claim to know what theists think. I just want to know if perception is all that is necessary to legitimately infringe upon expression.

    Either have all religions that want to display....or none.

    Very easy if you actually think about it.
    I will express myself as I see fit. Perhaps you should look in a mirror occasionally. No group "whines" more than the modern lib.

    I never suggested infringing on expression.

    FYI, the TST is an atheist group, they are not theists, they are not even satanists.

    Not an actual answer from you. Just more blather.

    You seem to only want religious displays that you agree with. Too bad, there is no state religion here.

    Start acting like an American.

    Then I would think that they are completely wasting their time. Religious displays are fine so long as it's open to all. Part of being an atheist is that I don't have to concern myself with this stuff anymore. So long as the rights and liberties of the individual are upheld, peoe should be free to do as they like.

    It's not my problem if you have trouble with perception. Maybe hypnotherapy would help.

    It is their own claim. Did you read the link? Do you always comment from a position of ignorance? Oh wait, you're a lib, never mind.

    And? Maybe mocking you is their religion. Who gives you the right to tell them how they celebrate it? Christians wanted the government to be involved in religion but only their religion, so now you get to enjoy the fruits of it.

    Isn't equality nice?

    That's the problem with involving the government in religion. You aren't going to like all of the other religions people choose to involve.
