I must say that in this world of political correctness this guy was bold, blunt, and to point. Keep in mind this is coming from a guy who fought battle of Civil Rights, a soldier who fought for them, and an esteemed former Commander of an American Legions post in Banning, California. He continued…
The ACLU is an elitist organization bent on social engineering of our Country in defiance of both legislative and executive branches. What they are involved in is secular cleansing of American History.”
He asked if I were familiar with how Stalin airbrushed people like Trotsky out of photos in order to rewrite history. He went on to compare that to how what ACLU is trying to do with Christianity in American history. He pointed out many similarities.
Then he got to good stuff! He repeated….
“The ACLU is involved in secular cleansing of our history. This is not just a fight about free exercise, but about protection of our American history. The ACLU want to deny America knowledge of their Christian heritage.”
“For example, Ten Commandments in Court Houses. I don’t think this is an “endorsement” of religion. It is an acknowledgment of our history. I don’t care if it causes discomfort to Islamic terrorists, Islamic terrorist sympathizers, or Hindus and their holy cows.”
At this point I felt like saying, ….Bwhahahahah! However I restrained myself like nice guy that I am. I’m glad I did, cause this is when he got really good stuff.
“This is a Christian Nation! And we ought to be damn proud it is! Because it is only in Christian Nations where you will find freedom of religion. We are a Christian Nation, and U.S. Supreme Court said so. The Supreme Court in HOLY TRINITY CHURCH v. U.S. that this is a Christian Nation. That is our history. The history ACLU wants to erase.”
“Secular Humanism is a religion. Again, Supreme Court ruled this in Torcaso vs. Watkins. If this is true, then it is being given precedence over other religions in our nation today.”
I finally asked question that I primarily called for. Knowing that American Legion is supporting The Public Expression of Religion Act of 2005 would it affect ability of a poor person to defend their religious liberty by having to pay attorney fees out of pocket? To this question he answered….
“Absolutely not! This legislation would only apply to “Establishment Clause” cases. This would help to keep organizations from being paid attorney’s fees in cases such as ones where ACLU is fighting to take down our Veterans’ Memorials. It would only affect these kinds of suits. The “Free Exercise” is not affected at all. So someone defending their right to express religion could still collect attorney’s fees.” Read More at Stop The ACLU.Com
