Just as I was starting to feel completely overwhelmed by all the craziness going on in this country these days, a friend forwarded me a link to this posting on the blog Pharyngula. It’s about an anti-evolution and anti-ACLU rant. Here’s a bit of what was quoted:
Today, hundreds of public institutions live in fear of an ACLU lawsuit. ACLU can be proud of this achievement. It is the single greatest agency, next to the United States government, for the repression of divergent opinion. Some might call it McCarthyism but I wouldn’t disgrace the name of Joseph McCarthy by associating it with ACLU
Well, there’s nothing like good old-fashioned ACLU-bashing to cheer me right up.(Note to all those who send us hate mail: you might be dismayed to know what a kick we get out of your emails. We circulate them to each other.)
I must confess to being confused by this part of the rant, though:
The fervor of the hostility of the ACLU and other secularist and Leftist types smacks of the intolerance of religious fanatics that they often smirk about. They are the priests of the The Religion of Man in The Church of Government.
Funny, last time I checked, we sue the government. We don’t generally worship there.
