ACLU What should it do and what it does.

American: 1 : of or relating to America

Civil: 1 a : of or relating to citizens b : of or relating to the state or its citizenry

Liberties: 1 : the quality or state of being free: a : the power to do as one pleases b : freedom from physical restraint c : freedom from arbitrary or despotic control d : the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges e : the power of choice

Union: 2 : something that is made one : something formed by a combining or coalition of parts or members: as a : a confederation of independent individuals (as nations or persons) for some common purpose

The above are from Merriam Webster online. I have taken the definition I think is most relative to this post.

So what should an organization that as it's name has a group of individuals grouped together to protect the liberties of it's (American) citizens do? This seems like a pretty simple question to answer, open and shut right? Wrong. Instead of protecting the rights and liberties of citizens it tries to destroy those rights by judicial process. I am no expert on all of the cases the ACLU has been involved in but a quick look around the internet and I am pretty certain that most of their activities are ANTI civil liberties. At the very least the ate anti Christian. It seems that it is ok for someone to carry a ten inch knife on campus with them because it is part of their faith, but it is not ok for any students to pray before a game on the same campus. Is this equal protection or anti Christian? I believe in what the ACLU says it stands for just not in the ACLU.
