The ACLU has attacked Mt. Soledad memorial in San Diego since the the very beginning of Bush the Elderâ€™s Administration because it includes a cross. This is just one of countless examples of the ACLUâ€™s seek and destroy mission to eliminate all religious symbols from public grounds.
76% of San Diegans voted to save the Mt. Soledad National War Memorial from the ACLUâ€™s attack on behalf of a single atheist. That atheist, Jim McElroy was quoted as saying following the vote: "It still doesnâ€™t mean a damn thing," he said, according to
the San Diego Union-Tribune. "Voters should have never voted on it. Itâ€™s a waste
of taxpayersâ€™ money."
The reaction from ACLU-types will predictably be something like: “What is right and Constitutional is not always popular.” Easy answer: What the ACLU does is invent rights and distort the Constitution, which is why the ACLU is so UNpopular. The ACLU has used dubious interpretations of law NEVER imagined by our Founders with compliance from radical judges to push an agenda abhorrent to most Americans and indeed to the intent of the Constitution. Look no further than the ACLUâ€™s pro bono defense of a website that advocates pedophilia and instructs its visitors in how to rape children and evade prosecution. Soâ€¦the ACLU considers encouraging instruction on how to commit and get away with child rape a First Amendment rightâ€¦does anyone believe that the Founders would agree? Therefore, canâ€™t we conclude that if the ACLU is so wrong on this, that it may be wrong on many other things? Judge the evidence for yourself.
