    For the most part, I'm a fan of theirs.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    They stole the Mojave Desert Cross (or inspired someone to do it). ACLU blows.

    What's ironic is that the park is barring the elderly couple from putting up a replacement until the court ruling is finished. So essentially the vandals and immature "offended" individuals have won. It makes me sick.

    *now a comment relevent to the thread*
    One reason I very much dislike the ACLU is that they plead the case of militant atheists who get "offended" that a cross or something like that has been in a public place for 70+ years and they want to see it removed when it obviously isn't hurting anyone or trampling on freedoms.

    So that would be a no, you cannot prove it, nor do you even have any actual evidence that your charge is accurate. There are many people with more than one motive who could have done it.

    Re: Aclu

    over the years It has become obvious to me that the goal of the ACLU is to push rights that can be used to undermine the values this country was based upon while ignoring rights that tend to preserve our traditional freedoms.

    The ACLU has been hostile to gun rights which is a bulwark against an oppressive socialist form of government. the ACLU has not supported the right of association-for example it came out against the boy scouts limiting its scoutmasters to straight males and the ACLU has never supported the right of a country club to limit its voting membership to males. Those are all contrary to the right of association-which of course includes the right to not associate

    I also note that 70% or so of the ACLU membership considers its self far left or progressive suggesting that pushing left wing agendas is a motive of this group

    I do note that some local chapters of the ACLU tend to support constitutional rights of all stripes and those chapters are to be admired.

    Redress, that cross was in the middle of the ****in' desert. It had been there 70 years and only once the ACLU made a federal case of it (literally) was the cross first covered then, when the cross was going to be allowed to remain, it was stolen. Doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to put those pieces together.

    Re: Aclu

    I attended a meeting to organize an ACLU chapter in our town and I asked a question. Free speech used to be the hallmark of the ACLU. For me, Skokie, Illinois, was great because they stood up for free speech. So, I asked about free speech and was treated to a short lecture about how much they love free speech. Then I asked about "hate" speech. Oh, that's different. Damn right it is. That's speech the government doesn't like and the ACLU will not buck a socialist government.

    The ACLU asked me once to help author a pamphlet for local distribution on peoples rights in dealing with the police. I agree to help with the pamphlet if they would agree to expand it to rights and responsibilities. No, they weren't interested in responsibilities.

    The ACLU can do their thing. I won't help fund them and I don't want the government funding them like they do with NPR or funding them under the table like they did with ACORN.
