Perhaps the most inappropriately named organization in the world is the American Civil Liberties Union or ACLU. The organization is anything but civil and its only interest in liberty seems to be in destroying the foundation upon which it is built. As I observe its well-funded legal bullying, I find it difficult to discern the organization’s real goal. Is the ACLU trying to destroy Christianity or just America? From the lawsuits the organization files and the threats it makes to intimidate those who cannot afford lawsuits, it is difficult to determine which the ACLU loathes more: the Bible or the Constitution. Of course, there is always the possibility that the ACLU wants to destroy both and that by destroying one it can destroy the other.
In their book The ACLU vs. America, Alan Sears and Craig Osten summarize the agenda of this bastion of the radical left. What follows are just selected examples of the ACLU’s broader agenda as summarized by Sears and Osten:
- Remove all legal bans on the distribution of obscene material. If the ACLU has its way, there will be no prohibitions against any kind of obscenity or pornography including child pornography. How this will improve American society is difficult to imagine, but then improving American society does not appear to be high on the ACLU’s list of priorities.
- Allow pornography stores to locate anywhere. If the ACLU has its way, outlets that peddle smut will be able to locate next door to churches, schools, childcare centers, and your home. Once again, it is difficult to understand how removing the restrictions on where smut shops can locate will improve America. On the other hand, if undermining America’s moral foundation is the goal this is a perfectly understandable—though loathsome—strategy.
