    Stop The ACLU ^ | 26-Sep-06 | John Stephenson
    Well, we are half way there! Now the legislation needs to pass the Senate. This will be more difficult to do, so we continue to need all of the support we can get. The roll call is in from the House and its not good news for the ACLU! The bill, H.R. 2679, would deny legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses to be taken from taxpayers and given put into the pockets of groups like the ACLU when they successfully sue against references to God and religion in public settings, has passed by a vote of 244-173! This is good news,...

    Years ago I changed from being a supporter of the ACLU to opposing it on every front. It was their anti-Christian, anti-Boy Scout message and their support for NAMBLA (the North American Man Boy Love Association) after the horrendous Curley murder in Massachusetts that turned me into an opponent of the ACLU. With NAMBLA, the ACLU actually supported efforts by NAMBLA to show their member-perverts how to elude police identification and apprehension. I have repeatedly, on my weblog, called for the contributors to this evil organization to pull the plug on their donations.

    WASHINGTON (BP)--Indiana’s John Hostettler is trying for the fifth consecutive Congress to prevent the American Civil Liberties Union from receiving government funds when it succeeds at legal challenges to public expressions of religion. This year, the Republican representative has more hope than before thanks to the American Legion. The country’s largest veterans organization, with about three million members, has aggressively thrown its influence behind Hostettler’s bill, and the persistent congressman is encouraged at his proposal’s prospects. Hostettler’s measure, the Public Expression of Religion Act (PERA), H.R. 2679, is designed to close what he considers a loophole in federal law that...

  • How Much Did the ACLU Get From YOU Today?

    Under federal law, an attorney or an organization of attorneys that wins a civil rights case in a federal court can charge legal fees and collect damages from the losing defendant in the case. This includes cases of so-called “religious discrimination” under the “establishment” clause of our Constitution. This means that when the ACLU brings an action against a city or town that has allowed a crèche or an opening prayer or anything else that some disaffected atheist feels offends him, and wins the case, not only does the country lose another symbol of our heritage, but the city or...
