The ACLU Now Opposes Religious Freedom Because Christians Need It

The American Civil Liberties Union has formally reversed its support for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, signaling that the organization is no longer interested in mounting an ideologically consistent defense of all people of faith. It’s a disappointing retreat on principles for the ACLU, and the organization’s explanation suggests that a singular disdain for Christian belief is the reason.

    The ACLU is just becoming another far left anti-white, anti-Christian group just like SPLC.

    The ACLU defends freedom…for Muslims.

    The ACLU has always been a communist front and is once again showing its true colours. Its agenda has always been the destruction of the very foundation of American culture and society.

    let me correct you…Christianity AND Judaism

    It’s almost like they’re douchebags or something.

      No, Really? Oh wait THEY ARE douchebags or something.

  • Clink9

    They are enemies of the state.

    • Clausewitz

      Maybe not the state, (because Obama most likely loves them), but definitely the Nation.

    That is the core hatred of many liberals, gays, Muslims. Their hatred of Christians and Jews is what unites them.

    Why do some here say that the ACLU is explicitly anti Christians AND Jews?
    I only see anti-Christain bigotry mentioned in both links.

    • Alain

      I cannot speak for others, but I assumed they were referring to the Judaeo-Christian values of the founders of your country, and of mine for that matter. That said I doubt they would defend religious Jews versus the Left or Islam.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Well, going by the words I read, I see “Christians and Jews” mentioned, but not Judeo Christain values mentioned.
        Is anyone attacking Jews for their religious beliefs in the west that would require the assistance of a legal defense or advocacy team such as the ACLU?
        No instances come to mind.
        How many Jewish bakeries or churches or pizza parlors have been prosecuted.
        All I see are Christian business, exclusively.
        Heck, I’ll settle for non-Chistian instances.

        If I am wrong, please show me instances of Synagogs or Jewish businesses being targeted. I don’t think I’m wrong, and I think that this is exclusively, and a targeted, anti-Christian phenomena.
        The Leftists, in this instance, seem to be leaving the Jews alone.
