    You accusations are completely without merit. The national media attention means that all sorts of people took an interest in that cross. It could have been compeltely separate political group who wanted the cross taken down or scrap metal thieves. I don't agree with the ACLU's choice to go after the cross, but one shouldn't throw around accusations without evidence.

    Did the ACLU condemn the theft or make a plea for it's return?

    Yes. Didn't most of us agree with the Supreme Court Decision that even offensive speech should be protected?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Protecting the first amendment rights.... Is that a great service? The right to freedom of speech. In my opinion yea that is a great service...

    Rathi beat me to it. The case drew national attention,something it had not had beforehand. You have presented a grand total of zero evidence to back your case. Sherlock would be laughing at your case.

    What exactly does this have to do with anything? I have not condemned the theft nor made a plea for it's return either. Am I now a suspect? Logic, it's a good thing to use before you post.

    They have defended people's constitutional rights, even when it was hard to do. Those bastards!
