Austin Cline, MA Biography

Title:
Agnosticism/Atheism guide
Position:
Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The ACLU has consistently defended the rights of Christians to worship as their religion and conscience dictates, often against the attempts by other Christians to infringe upon those rights by having certain forms of Christianity privileged by the government. The ACLU has also consistently fought against the privileging of any one religion or any one sect over others.”
