Merry Christmas, ACLU

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is the most dangerous legal organization in America today.

The ACLU demands that homosexual tolerance-training be required in certain schools or else lawsuits will follow. Not only does the ACLU want women to have the choice to have an abortion under any circumstance, but it wants the rights to be extended to the age of fourteen and without parental consent. It also demands oral sex training be taught in schools while calling abstinence a dangerous practice.

Louise Melling, director of the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project said:

"Today's report offers concrete evidence that abstinence-only sex education curriculums are all too often based on ideology and religion rather than science. Studies show that the overwhelming majority of parents want their children to get all the information they need to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including information about contraception, how to use condoms properly, and about abortion. The government needs to stop censoring lifesaving information."

Abstinence doesn't save lives? Well it does, but it might have some religious context to it, according to the ACLU, so that makes abstinence "dangerous." Did the ACLU ever stop and think that giving sexual tools and instructions to kids to use will actually increase dangerous sexual activity? Sex is never a 100% safeguarded against sexual diseases or unwanted pregnancies.

The ACLU is always finding new ways to outrage traditional America. This month, the ACLU's biggest focus is censoring Christmas, a national holiday. The ACLU is clamping down on school districts, trying to deter them from promoting Christmas in any way. No Christmas tree, no carol singing, and by no means, any mention of the name of Jesus Christ.

The ACLU says that we cannot publicly celebrate our own national holiday unlike Halloween or Thanksgiving, which is celebrated in public schools without much prejudice.

The ACLU believes that Christmas offends the beliefs of non-Christians. Yet homosexuality doesn't impose on other people's values? How biased can one organization be? Not even Ramadan or Hanukah were discriminated against by the ACLU last year.

In the First Amendment, it says: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. "

If the leaders of the ACLU ever took the time to find out why this phrase was there, then maybe they would reform its views.

England, the country that the colonists came from, had only one church and it was the Anglican Church or the Church of England. All others were illegal. King Henry the Eighth had a falling out with the Catholic Church some years back over a divorce issue and outlawed the Catholic Church. He established the Anglican Church and allowed no others to exist.

Our forefathers saw this as religious tyranny, and some groups like the Quakers came to America to escape from religious persecution. One of the fundamental principles laid down by the founding fathers was the concept of religious freedom, without repercussions from the government.

Today, it has been bastardized into the popular notion that religion (especially Christianity) has no place in our society or in any public forum. It is ironic that the laws of this nation are based upon the laws laid down in the Ten Commandments.

Some Christians are fighting back. People in the "Public Advocate of the United States" will sing Christmas carols at noon on December 8 in front of the ACLU office building in Washington, D.C. But they are not alone in this fight. In Maplewood, New Jersey, parents of the Columbia High School brass ensemble, are fighting for their rights to sing Christmas carols at the school's holiday concert. Since the ACLU will not defend the students' rights, Attorney Demetrios Stratis, affiliated with the conservative civil liberties group Alliance Defense Fund, will do so.

Let the battle for Christmas begin.
