Liberty Counsel Biography

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

“The ACLU is trying to shut down the Scouts with one hand and with the other argue that juvenile boys have the right to cavort nude in public parks…. Honoring God and pledging to remain pure are pretty good foundational values. Defending juvenile boys who want to cavort nude in a public park is ludicrous.”
