Craig Osten Biography

Title:
Vice President of Research for the Alliance Defense Fund
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“For eight decades, the ACLU has been America’s leading religious censor, waging a largely uncontested (until recently) war against America’s core values – all not only without protest but with the support of much of the media – cloaking its war in the name of liberty.

The result of this conflict is that Americans find themselves living in a country that, with each passing day, resembles less of what our nation’s Founding Fathers intended when they came to these shores.”
