American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The ACLU is at it again. With an outrageous boldness that only they could muster, the ACLU has, once again, set their sights on Christmas celebrations. In their never-ending quest to completely eradicate all things religious from public life, the ACLU’s latest lawsuit is an all-out frontal attack on the freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion.”
