    The ACLU is usually right, and most of the opposition to them comes from people completely misunderstanding their positions or believing outright lies about them.

    What are the "outright lies" about the ACLU?

    I'm thinking of the "they support child molesting" because they defended a guy who was accused of encouraging child molestors with some website.

    Was it comedic or was it an instructional on how to child molest?

    I hope you're still being serious!

    I believe it was advocating child molesting, that is, repealing age of consent laws.

    In any event, someone who's kid was molested sued the website for it. The case had nothing to do with child molesting or the ACLU supporting the website's views, but with freedom of speech.

    Yes, icky. In any event, you frequently hear hysterical complaints like "the ACLU supports child molesting" and goofy crap like that based on this case.

    My gawd you mean an entire population of people are rampantly misinformed and believe the ACLU supports child molestation and is anti-christian because they don't understand the premises of the cases it contends in?

    They should change legal jargon and language to one that we can all understand! That way these things wont happen.
