    As a matter of law it should and does, as a matter of dogma it is for them to decide.

    You're recklessly throwing around "communist" in a discussion that still has nothing to do with economics.
    I gave the mountain of evidence ---the reasons why the ACLU is a communist affiliate.

    If communism was all about the ecomomy, then why is education listed as one of the tenets among other non-economic hallmarks typical of communist governments?

    oh look its the ACLU defending christians in a private business setting.
    Thanks for informing me. I was not aware Chick-fil-A was a local or state government.

    The ACLU would of course bent over backwards to join an atheisist group that would ban school prayer at the same school that allowed a child to sing "awesome God."

    Right up until they do you harm because you don't believe in their gods, they ostracize you from society, refuse to do business with you or hang you from a tree. Jefferson was only correct, so long as the religious keep their religion to themselves. When they do not, then it absolutely does injury.

    I'm not 100% sure on that one. I think that they can express religion without hanging someone from a tree or otherwise infringing upon the rights of others. And if they do refrain from infringing upon the rights of others, then they should be allowed to do as they see fit.

    You didn't give me a mountain of evidence, you copied and pasted hack opinions.

    Backtrack to my orginal response to you. My opinons are quite valid and commonplace. It's not for nothing the ACLU is also called:

    American Communist Lawyers Union.

    I'm not saying that most do not refrain from infringing on the rights of others, but one only has to look at history to see that there's a considerable amount of harm done in the name of religion to people who want nothing to do with it. You get people beheaded in the Middle East today because they don't follow the local religious delusion. You get women raped, people beaten and property destroyed because someone dares to follow a different religious tradition, or no tradition at all. This is not at all uncommon. Even for those who do not stoop to violence, we know that our beliefs do inform our actions and that includes how we vote. That's where all the anti-gay and racist laws came from across the country, people who thought that an invisible man in the sky wanted it that way. It's taken a long time, and we're still not done, rooting out a lot of the religiously-based hatred. That's not no harm, that's a lot of harm and it needs to be addressed. For those, as I said, that keep their religions to themselves, I have no problem with. It's the fact that many people cannot do so, they feel the need to push their beliefs on others, either through violence or through force of law, that needs to be addressed.
