The only reason people think the ACLU is anti-Christian is because it's mostly Christian fundamentalists who try to use government power to proclaim their faith in the public square, so when the ACLU comes in to defend the Wall of Separation, yeah, of course they look "anti-Christian". That's the people they have to fight against most often!

That being said, why the **** do I care? I celebrate Christmas as an American holiday, not in any religious context. But I go to church that day...which probably puts me ahead of some of that 81%.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

That being said we now live with that system. A system which has taken a look at the issues involved and made their decisions. Regardless of whether or not you agree with the current interpretation it is accepted law. You are welcome to disagree. You are welcome to try and change it. You are not welcome to act as if it does not exist or that the views that it expresses are somehow invalid because they do not match up to someone's opinion 230 years ago.
Either way, I called BS on the basis that your portrayal of their goals simply isn't possible in America, so whether you opt to concern yourself with the impossible or not my point still stands.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
First there was the War on Christmas. Now the sequel: The War on the War on Christmas. As usual, the evil liberals having established there are no headquarters or organizations which specifically declared a war on Christmas so therefore declare there not to be one. Despite the evidence of the removal of religions symbols, religous language, religious songs and the pervasive fear of offending someone by saying "Merry Christmas", there is no real war. Nothing has really changed at all.
