Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

In order to combat my annoyance over the unwillingness of media outlets to tell the truth and avoid letting their bias rule, as well as to have an outlet for my very (at times) wordy self, this blog has been created by yours truly. This will be an accounting of events in the world, my country, and my little piece of the world as best as I can see it, hear it, and relay it.

The ACLU. Are They Really For Me and You?


An excerpt from the above article:

"In a Texas classroom, children were told to draw a tracing of their foot, and then put a message on the drawing. One little girl wrote "Jesus Loves Me" on hers. What happened next shows the abysmal state of religious tolerance in America.

As Fox news anchor John Gibson relates in his new book, The War on Christmas, the child's teacher ripped the tracing off the board. "Don't you ever do this again," she said. The little girl burst into tears.

When her outraged father called the school, nervous officials told the child to make another tracing. She did so-but this time, instead of scrawling "Jesus Loves Me," she drew a tiny cross that was so small it was almost invisible."

Poor little kid! Can anyone imagine how scared she must have been? Whatever was the threat to this teacher that she would traumatize a little girl like that? What is she so afraid of that she would abandon her duty to that child and burden that little girl with her own problem with intolerance of the little girl's drawing? How is it that this sort of thing happened in an American school? Were this little girl's civil liberties violated? You bet!! Where is the outcry from those at the ACLU on this child's behalf? No where, that's where! Why? Because the organization that should be about protecting ALL American's civil liberties isn't concerned with the civil liberties of those who happen to profess Christian beliefs.

It's true. Here is list of what the ACLU puts their muscle behind with money given to them be various businesses such as the recent $8.5 million the chairman of Progressive Insurance donated:

First the anti-Christmas agenda:
-Removing nativity scenes from public property
-Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools
-Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas in school projects
-Renaming Christmas break Winter break
-Refusing to allow a city sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade
-Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school
-Renaming a Christmas tree displayed on public property a Holiday tree

And their basic all year round agenda:
-Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage
-Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers
-Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders
-Help legalize child pornography
-Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon
-Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association whose motto is "sex by eight or it is too late"
-Censor student led prayer at graduation
-Remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance
-Remove "In God We Trust" on our currency

Every single one of the above has a case that the ACLU has pursued or is pursuing.
