Some Amazing Facts about
America's “Enemy Within”
The ACLU was founded in 1920 by communism enthusiast Roger Baldwin. "I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately, for abolishing the state itself... I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertized class, and the sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.” (Roger Baldwin 1884-1981 pictured above)
In 1981, President Jimmy Carter awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom (the highest award bestowed on American civilians) to Roger Baldwin – a man who openly endorsed Stalin's policies and sought to ultimately “abolish the state.”

In 1947, the ACLU was responsible for Everson v. Board of Education coming before the high court. One of its lawyers, Leo Pfeffer, wrote the draft opinion which resulted in the popularization of the so-called, “separation of church and state.”
Meet Klansman Black
The author of the Everson v. Board of Education which was responsible for the erroneous separation of church and state fallacy was Justice Hugo Black. Black was a card carrying member of the ACLU AND a former member of the Alabama Ku Klux Klan.
In 1962 Justice Black also wrote the decision (Engel v. Vitale) prohibiting school prayer.
Abandoning the Nation's Founding Philosophy
state may not
acknowledge the sovereignty of the Judeo-Christian God and attribute
to that God our religious freedom." (US District Court Judge
Myron Thompson, ACLU member)
The ACLU is Systematically Erasing our Christian Heritage
“If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the school children to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments ... [This] is not a permissible objective.”
-- U.S. Supreme Court (1980)
MOJAVE WWI MEMORIAL CROSS
“The presence of the cross on federal land conveys a message of endorsement of religion.”
-- U.S. District Judge Robert J. Timlin
“The cross must come down, and no amount of political maneuvering or grandstanding will prevent that. ”
-- ACLU Attorney Peter Eliasberg
MOUNT SOLEDAD WAR MEMORIAL
“It is now time, and perhaps long overdue, for this Court to enforce its initial permanent injunction forbidding the presence of the Mounr Soledad cross on City property.”
-- U.S. District Judge Gordon Thompson, Jr.
LOS ANGELES COUNTY SEAL
The ACLU pressured the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to revise the county's seal, because the design featured a tiny cross in one small corner of the seal's design. The coerced change cost taxpayers over $1,000,000 to change all the county's seals. (Former Seal, left, New Seal, right)
The ACLU's Hypocrisy of Funding Public Art
Not all taxpayer-funded
symbols are forbidden by the ACLU! The ACLU has defended:
- A crucifix submerged in a jar of urine.
- A painting of the virgin Mary with elephant dung smeared on it.
- A painting of a naked, crucified woman on display in the Honolulu City Hall.
The ACLU is simply the purveyor of socialism
The ACLU's founder, Roger Baldwin, stated: "We are for SOCIALISM, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the state itself... We seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the SOLE CONTROL of those who produce wealth. COMMUNISM is the goal." (Source: Trial and Error, by Geo. Grant)
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." - President Abraham Lincoln

Christians must recognize Satan as the source - the instigator - when
the end results of an organization's efforts are only "to kill,
to steal, and to destroy." All we need to is examine the
Following are some of the stated goals of the ACLU, from its own published Policy Issues:
= the legalization of prostitution (Policy 211);
= the defense of all pornography, including CHILD PORN, as "free speech" (Policy 4);
= the decriminalization and legalization of all drugs (Policy 210);
= the promotion of homosexuality (Policy 264);
= the opposition of rating of music and movies (Policy 18);
= opposition against parental consent of minors seeking abortion (Policy 262);
= opposition of informed consent preceding abortion procedures (Policy 263);
= opposition of spousal consent preceding abortion (Policy 262);
= opposition of parental choice in children's education (Policy 80)
-- not to mention the defense and promotion of euthanasia, polygamy, government control of church institutions, gun control, tax-funded abortion, birth limitation, etc. (Policies 263, 133, 402, 47, 261, 323, 271, 91, 85).
Following is a case in point (from David
"America: To Pray or Not to Pray").
In 1988, California was considering adopting legislation on sex education for public schools requiring that course material and
instruction should stress that monogamous heterosexual intercourse within marriage is a traditional American value.
The Senator promoting the bill received a letter of protest from the ACLU dated April 18, 1988 stating:
"It is our position that monogamous, heterosexual intercourse within marriage
as a traditional American value is an unconstitutional establishment of religious
doctrine in public schools.... We believe [this bill] violates the First Amendment."
Truth is, liberals are unwilling to simply
be, but rather seek to impose their UNgodliness upon Christians. It
is a mission to
them and other atheists to pervert the freedoms of others. The ACLU does not run to the defense of those who are harmed; it aggressively
seeks out opportunities to corrupt pure freedoms.
How does the ACLU pay for its activities?
George Grant, author of "Trial and Error," puts the ACLU's annual budget (1993) at $14 MILLION (FOURTEEN MILLION DOLLARS) - much of which is "SUPPLIED BY THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER through the Federal program mandated by the Civil Rights Attorneys' Fee Awards Act of 1976. If the ACLU wins a case that involves a public institution, for instance, the organization collects the full legal fees of its attorneys even though those attorneys offered their services pro bono (without charge).
1993 membership in the ACLU was 250,000 members, with 70 staff lawyers, and 5,000 volunteer attorneys, handling an average of 6,000 cases at any one time.
