When a conservative’s liberty is at risk, who’s he going to call: The ACLU

Yea…yea…yea…all conservatives say the same thing over and over: “How can anyone seriously try to claim that the ACLU is helping our country these days? Which of their causes [is] noble and admirable?”Yet, when conservatives and conservative causes are in trouble – really…really in trouble – they don’t go the Fox News or conservative pundits; they go to the ACLU.

Conservatives know who really defends personal liberty in this country.

Consequently when religious liberty – not petty piety but real religious liberty – is under attack, it's the ACLU who comes to the defense. Here's a short list:

When “rabid right wing wackos,” such as Rev Jerry Falwell, Rush Limbaugh, and Bob Barr, are under attack, they run to the ACLU:

Rev. Jerry Falwell - In Win for Rev. Falwell (and the ACLU), Judge Rules VA Must Allow Churches to Incorporate (4/17/2002)
