Because freedom can't protect itself
It seems like the ACLU is the msin obstacle to religious freedom. They are the ones who stand in the way of prayer in schools. How can they support religious freedom for all other religions except Christianity? IF they are supportive of one religion they need to be supportive of all. They talk out of both sides of their mouths.
Anonymous (first entry), I urge you to invest some time on this site and see what the ACLU does. I have and understand that:
- the ACLU has no problem with prayer in school unless it is at the urging, guidance, or with the support of representatives of the state or unless it disrupts the proper operation of the school.
- the ACLU has defended the rights of Christians to practice their religion in schools and elsewhere when threatened by the state.
- the ACLU would come to the aid of a religious student who was not allowed to preach on the playground during recess as long as the proper operation of the school was not impeded
