The ACLU, in yet another blatant display of hypocrisy, wants to reverse a law they once used to support homosexual groups, because the law is now benefiting a Christian group. A proposed Christian group in Kent, Washington excludes homosexuals from joining (as if they would want to join a group that believes homosexuality is a sin) and the ACLU, who fought for the rights of homosexuals to have an exclusive club, is suddenly switching sides. Homosexuals can have a group that excludes heterosexuals, but homosexuals can’t be excluded.
But, excluding homosexuals isn’t the only problem according to the ACLU. The whole idea of a Christian group is “offensive” say ACLU lawyers. Why is it that the ACLU would consider criticizing Islam worthy of a law suit, yet they have no problem with calling an entire religion offensive in and of itself?
I’m so tired of the constant barrage of attacks on Christianity from a tax funded hate group. Their sole purpose on this planet seems to be tearing down America, and silencing, censoring, and banning Christianity. They’ve succeeded in changing our culture, our schools, and our laws with the help of an out of control judiciary. I would say we should all write our Senators, but the Republicans can’t seem to figure out how to be a majority yet. They’re like the nice kid in school who constantly gets beat up by the bully even though the bully is half his size.
The ACLU’s support of a legal precedent used to gain recognition of a student homosexual group has reversed now that the ruling is being used to back the rights of a Christian club on campus, claims a public-interest law firm.
The Associated Student Body at Kentridge High School in Kent, Wash., has rejected the Truth Bible Club because it required all members to adhere to a code of Christian conduct and voting members to sign a statement of faith. Also, the name of the club was deemed “offensive” and “proselytizes.”
The case is governed by the Equal Access Act, a federal statute that requires schools to treat student clubs equally, notes the Arizona-based Alliance Defense Fund, which is defending the Truth Bible Club.
In Prince v. Jacoby, ADF argues, the Ninth Circuit held that denying official sponsorship of a club violates the Equal Access Act.
ADF points out that in 2003, shortly after Prince v. Jacoby was decided, the ACLU sent an information letter to school officials in Washington state explaining the case “makes it clear that student clubs promoting tolerance for gay students are entitled to the same resources as other clubs.”
But now, the ACLU has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the Truth case that takes the opposite position.
The ACLU now wants to strike down the Prince case if it will be used to allow a Bible club on campus, the ADF’s Tim Chandler told WorldNetDaily.
“This goes to show how far the ACLU will manipulate the legal system to further their radical agenda,” said Chandler, a litigation specialist who is working on the case. . . . . . . . .
