Is The ACLU Evil?
I have just found a Christian with whom I utterly disagree on a particular issue (thanks to our friends at FreeRepublic.com for finding this article). All I need do is give the title of the Op Ed I disagree with for you to understand my consternation:
The ACLU Is Not Evil, by Stephen L. Carter, published on the Christianitytoday.com website on May 11th, 2006. (ClickHere to go to Christianitytoday.com article)
It seems that Mr. Carter's main point is that the ACLU does a good thing once in a while so we should all cut them some slack. In his piece, Carter says:
"More to the point, the ACLU is often right about the First Amendment's free exercise clause, taking on fights that others refuse. It might surprise some critics that the ACLU defends the free speech and free exercise rights of, well, Christians."
This argument is absurd. It's like saying that, because Stalin was on the right side of WWII, he was really a swell guy after all... you know, despite all that gulag and murder of millions stuff! Or, that we can excuse the criminal actions of the Mob because they give to a charity once in a while.................................
