The dividing line between a country drifting away from it's original idea due to religious fanatics who would force the world to their beliefs. They believe in the untainted freedom of being an individual human. This includes the ridiculous rules put up by religion such as removing freedom of speech. Sure the KKK may be moronic bastards but from the definitions on this page, I think no more of religion. Sure NAMBLA may be disgraceful. But how right are Christians when they prohibit homosexual rights? The ACLU is the dividing line between being taken advantage of when the corruption of religion reaches the high ranks of power in this Nation's political system.

The ACLU believes in human rights and nothing more.
Me: "The ACLU sure is dandy!"
Self-conflicting moron: "They support the KKK!!"
Me: "They support their freedom of speech not the infliction of harm apon another human. This is obvious as they defend those harmed by people of authority such as the Police."

Self-conflicting moron: "You support the KKK!!"

Get the ACLU mug.
The only glimmer of hope we have for America surviving the crises of the early 21st century.
The ACLU may not agree with what you say, but will defend to the Supreme Court your right to say it. (They even defended Rush Limbag when his civil rights were trampled!)

It seems that I am the only sane person on this website! I am not a "neo-nazi terrorist scumbag" but i do support freedom of speech, whether it be flag burning or KKK rallies, and i do not support the government holding untried prisoners in foreign countries where they are routinely waterboarded. I don't think that any religion should be present in schools, or any other pubic place for that matter, but what people worship in their homes or churches id fine with me. Call me anti-American all you want, but isn't it you that is being anti-America by not wanting what is in the best interests of the population?
This country is built on patriotic dissent. Lve with it, you closed minded, neo-conservatiove hate mongers.
You all have some growing up to do. ACLU FTW.

A group of lawyers dedicated to preserving the freedoms layed out in the American Bill of Rights, especially the first-amendment rights of freedom of speech and assembly.

The ACLU are often maligned and mischaracterised as being "anti-Christian" since they oppose state-sponsored religion. They have gathered considerable controversy for defending the rights of free speech for unpopular groups such as Neo-Nazis.
The ACLU fights hard to keep Americans free.

The proud, courageous, politically diverse group of legal professionals who defend the rights of this great nation and who are hated by the following: Southern Baptists (and all other misguided people who call themselves Christians), white supremacists (although, dammit, the ACLU has defended their right to freedom of expression before), anyone who hates freedom and tolerance (read: conservatives), and all the real terrorists in this country who'd like to undermine the Constitution.
Glory be to the ACLU!

A diverse group of lawyers and legal officials, whose objective is to defend the rights of the people of the United States from corruption that has run through the system. Often hated by Racists and especially Christians, because of their views on pro-choice for abortion, gay rights, and the like that the christian church opposes. They stand by the words in which America was made so long ago, they stand by America's true purpose, which many have lost sight of. Freedom, Liberty, and Privacy.
The ACLU is one of the few remaining organizations that hold by the principals through which America was made.

An organization that has socialist roots, not to mention it was originally an anti-war movement in the 1920's. Lately they have been leading the Pro-Choice front(oh look a condom!) and the war against Christmas.

Generally the standard ACLU infantryperson(note political correctness) is equiped with a Membership card, and a big book of law suits which have been filed in the past. The ACLU takes small cases that have been won in small towns(because small organizations and local schools can't fund defense against huge amounts of cash) and projects them onto larger cities and areas, eventually certain thing's are banned on a state wide basis. Not to mention a suitcase filled with cash, please note that many people unsuspectingly donate to the ACLU(including progressive auto insurance coughboycottcough).

The ACLU also uses the media to gain proponents, they are hailed as a good and rightous organization but really deep down they're stripping our liberties away. They may make a few cases that are truly good, but those generally are just a cover up for what really is going on.
Oh snap, ACLU attornies really are socialists!
