Group to sing carols in front of ACLU office Hopes spirit of Christmas will persuade moral values
WND ^ | Dec 4, 2004

Posted on 12/04/2004 5:48:12 PM PST by Tumbleweed_Connection

Upset with what they see as a relentless attack on the Boy Scouts, a group plans to sing religious and satirical Christmas carols in front of the Washington, D.C., office of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Volunteers with Public Advocate of the United States say the event Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. will "highlight the ACLU's continuing disregard for the rights of the young men in the Boy Scouts to maintain their morally straight principles."

As WorldNetDaily reported, the Pentagon will warn its bases not to sponsor Boy Scout troops after agreeing to settle an issue in a five-year-old lawsuit brought by the ACLU, which charged the government with improperly supporting a group requiring members to believe in God.

The ACLU complained the Boy Scouts of America "requires troop and pack leaders, in this case government employees, to compel youth to swear an oath of duty to God."

Public Advocate says it "hopes that the spirit of the Christmas season will fill the members and employees of the ACLU and that they will embrace the morals and principles of groups like the Boy Scouts and renounce their efforts to destroy traditional values in America."

The ACLU national office is at 915 15th St., NW, between I & K Streets in the nation's capital.

The ACLU, "believing" in civil liberties, will probably have them arrested.

Oh how I wish I could sing, I'd take the train to be there. But {sigh} that is a gift God didn't grant me. If I showed up the ACLU might have a good case to sue, violating the noise clause don't you know.

Why can't this be done on every ACLU office in the country?

Are there not volunteer groups who can do this?

This should be a good way to show these commies that they can not destroy Christmas from our lives.

Why would they sing satirical songs along with traditional Christmas carols?

I applaud the idea overall, but with the ACLU, a direct display of their hypocrisy juxtaposed by the singing of traditional verse may prove a more potent protest.

I'd love to see the lyrics of the satirical carols. Any DFU material?

If the ACLU is soooo insistent on separating "church" and "state", aren't they in effect causing the state to adopt ATHESIM, and force it down everyones throat, there by establishing a state religion, therefore violating the establishment clause?

Make sure you keep your eyes on any little boys in your company ~ the ACLU's main client at the moment really is NAMBLA, and there's absolutely no doubt what their ambition is with respect to the Boy Scouts.

It's simply not safe to have kids around ACLU members.

It really doesn't have a thing to do with religion.

We might not be there to "see it", but they WILL sing it.

"Volunteers with Public Advocate of the United States say the event Wednesday at 12:30 p.m."

Guess what time everyone at that office will be going to lunch on Wednesday?

I do like the idea though. But I think they should do it earlier.

It's a noble effort, and it won't hurt anything, but I think it's wasted on the ACLU.

They'll be far more upset by the traditional carols than the satire.

"the Pentagon will warn its bases not to sponsor Boy Scout troops after agreeing to settle an issue in a five-year-old lawsuit brought by the ACLU, "

Sec. Rumsfeld told O'reilly that the way it was worded, as long as the Base Commander did not endorse the Scouts, the military could continue to sponsor. Sec. Rumsfeld said he supports the Scouts.
