ACLU Defends Christianity

The ACLU is often disparaged by the Religious Right, euphemistically called The 'Anti-Christian Liberties' Union'.  Those who feel the ACLU is bent on stripping Christians of their rights and freedoms for no other reason than because they are Christians should consider this:
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit in federal district court Monday on behalf of two families from Dove World Outreach Center whose children were not allowed to wear "Islam is of the Devil" T-shirts to Alachua County public schools.

While I personally disagree with the students' tactic of wearing inflammatory slogans like this in the public square, I support their right to do so, even if they are Christians. The ACLU agrees, which might cause dissonance to those who hate the ACLU because they work to keep Christians from doing whatever they want at any time, sometimes with tax dollars.
