I am a card carrying member of the ACLU and I think they do good work even if I don't always agree with them on every issue.
For them the question would be whether this memorial is being put up in a public park or not and if it is then it should be religion neutral and the
cross is one of the symbols of Christianity.
The ACLU of which you are so proudly a member uses the Constitution only insofar as it aligns with their own agenda. They have just 2 "biggies" -
anything perceived as anti-black or anti-hispanic, and anything seen as pro-christian, and that's it really.
While you will find a hundred of their briefs on First Amendment rights, try finding me one on the Second Amendment.
Where were they on the Heller case, where were they when the citizens of New Orleans were having their legally owned weapons taken by force during
Katrina - you never heard so much as a squeak from them on Second Amendment breaches. But as soon as the allegations of racial profiling came up
during that same disaster, you couldn't move for ACLU briefs and court cases.
On the other hand, where is their support of the white firefighters who have been denied promotion because no minority applicants passed the same
promotion exam - sorry, wrong color.
Enough of their first biggie, now for their second, a hatred of Christianity.
When Pennsylvania schools were forced to include a statement in Biology classes about creationism, there was the ACLU filing suit to stop it.
And now, here we have a Christian nation (yup, sorry, you may not like it but we are) daring to erect a cross for Veteran's day, and there they are
again claiming religious bias.
They know full well that rather than include a star of david and the sign of Islam, and something for every other religion out there, the organizers
will have to opt for no religious imagery, and that's exactly what they want.
The ACLU used to stand for something good, these days they are something dirty and un-american.
