Because freedom can't protect itself
You folks need to have a talk with the militant gay rights group "Bash Back". An organization that advocates going into churches and disrupting the services by shouting, pulling the fire alarm, calling the Lord Jesus a "homo", ect. These people speak for those on the left who are opposed to state laws banning gay marriage, not for those who are for it. Everytime these militants invade churches, it will strenghten my support for those who want to keep marriage between a man and a woman.
Any reason the ACLU isn't immediately condemning the Obama administration's 'turn in your fellow citizens' program (you know, spying) as stated at www.whitehouse.gov with the e-mail "email@example.com"?
Maybe we should remind folks that the wing nuts are attempting to dictate to everyone who we may fall in love with.
Personaly I think that such folks should mind their own buisness and get lives.
The "wing nuts" would like "to dictate", period. I agree that these folks need to leave others alone to live their lives.
#4 I believe that statement is backwards. It seems to me that the left is trying very hard "to dictate" lives. If everyone does not do what you believe is right then you are a "wing nut". I would like to know who died and left the liberals boss?
I happen to belong to the party that is considered liberal. We all have our beliefs and are entitled to have them. Sometimes you just don't get what you want. We all need to accept that fact.
The ACLU is nothing more than a anti God , anti American , Anti Norm , Organization. The only thing they do is cause minority upheaval. Anything goes with these nuts. 100 years ago they all would be drove out of town on a rail. In todays terms the ACLU SUCKS. I love our nativity scene at City Hall every Christmas.

Maggie, if trying to prevent people from dictating how other people must behave is dictating, then you are correct. Of course, your right to swing your first ends at the tip of my nose, so please do not counter with laws against bank robbery. I reserve the term wingnut for those whose beliefs are so far from the norm - left or right, they might be a danger to themselves and others. This includes birthers and radical environmentalists.
Bill, you make a good point, 150 years the ACLU would have been run out of town on a rail as Abolitionists for supporting slavery. The upheaval the ACLU supports among minorities is an attempt by those minorities to recover their rights, taken away by the State.
Do you love your courthouse nativity scene more than the one at your Church? Can you picture yourself in a Muslim country taking in the Mawlid an-Nabī scene at the courthouse and not feeling threatened?
Great post, roald. I agree 100%.
