  • While it started with good intention..... The ACLU on more than one occasion has taken a "liberal leaning" bias... It has some potential cases of double standards, imo....

  • grly, hate to say it, but the aclu did not start with good intentions. It was started by a communist and has been on the same path since it began.

  • I wish they would pick their battles more wisely but they have their place in society no doubt. We need someone to challenge us to think which is, more often than not, what they do.

  • I'm NOT a fan of any organization that little by little strips away the core beliefs that our country was founded on...and I'm not talking solely about religion!
