The ACLU Shows its True Colors

On Wednesday of this week, the ACLU launched Not In My State, a nationwide drive against abstinence-only-until-marriage curricula.

”For too long the federal government has funded abstinence-only-until-marriage curricula that are based on ideology and religion rather than science,” said Jennifer McAllister-Nevins, State Strategies Attorney for the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project and Not In My State campaign coordinator.

The director of the ACLU's Reproductive Freedom Project is pro-abortion rights activist Louise Melling. If there is any question about the ACLU's agenda, consider these words praising Melling in a November 2002 ACLU press release announcing her appointment.

She (Melling) secured the first injunction against a so-called partial-birth abortion ban in the nation; she led several successful state constitutional challenges to restrictions on Medicaid coverage for abortions; and she participated in numerous challenges to laws requiring parental involvement in minors’ abortion decisions.

With activists like Louise Melling at the forefront of a drive against abstinence-only education, the ACLU is sounding much like the radical pro-abortion group NARAL. In July of this year, NARAL held a Screw Abstinence Party in order to “draw attention to the problems with federal funding for abstinence- only-until-marriage sex education programs.”

A promo for the event urged partygoers to “Come laugh, learn, socialize and buck the system at NARAL Pro-Choice Washington's Screw Abstinence Party.” Two features for the evening were advertised as follows:

Pork Filled Players -- Seattle theatre's hottest sketch comedy group performs a sex ed class for adults.

Toys in Babeland -- Seattle's sleaze-free, sex-positive purveyors of adult toys offer tips on "Sexy Safer Sex.

Can there be any doubt that groups like NARAL and the ACLU are on the same side? The ACLU's website claims that they are nonpartisan. However, the membership page of their website makes the following statement:

The Bush Administration is rolling back our rights in the name of homeland security . . . extremists on the Christian Right have the ear of the White House . . . and the federal judiciary is increasingly hostile to civil liberties.

Notice that the “Christian Right” are the “extremists.” The atheists who want to ban the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance are not extremists. The abortion rights activists who want to keep every form of abortion legal, including a procedure in which the abortionist jams scissors into a partially born baby's skull to make a hole, opens the scissors to enlarge the hole, removes the scissors and inserts a suction catheter into the hole, then sucks the baby's brains out causing the skull to collapse, are not extremists. These people are mainstream.

Make no mistake. The ACLU is a liberal, pro-abortion, anti-Christian organization. But the conservatives who read this blog already know that. For everyone else, I challenge you to see the ACLU for what it really is.

I quoted this post on my page. After reading it... it occurred to me that you don't necessarily have to believe in the existence of Satan in order to serve him. I mean it, if these groups set out to serve the prince of darkness... they'd be following the same plan.

Have you read C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters?" Its a must read.

Good point, Chris.
No, I haven't read The Screwtape Letters, but I'll put it on my list of books to read. I read C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity about 25 years ago. I recommend that if you haven't read it.

"Safer sex" ought to be called "slightly less risky sex" -- unless it's abstinence.

I agree, Evon. Thanks for your comment.
