J. Matt Barber, JD, MA Biography

Title:
Former Associate Dean for Online Programs at Liberty University
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“Anti-Christian extremist groups like the ACLU, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and People for the American Way hate God. They also hate America. True America.

These ‘progressive’ outfits – along with like-minded politicos, judges, Hollywood elitists and left-wing media-types – hate that this great nation was expressly founded upon the bedrock precepts of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

And so, in response, they lash out. They endeavor first to raze our God-blessed America, and then raise, from the rubble, a godless America fashioned in their own secular-socialist self-image…

[T]he ACLU and other like-minded ‘progressives’ are liars.”
