Every once in a while, I stroll via the internet to the ACLU’s website to see what is going on. I’m not real sure why I do because I always end up angry at most of the things the ACLU is involved in. I expected to hear about the latest lawsuit the ACLU brought against a nativity scene or against a City Council who opens their legislative meetings in prayer. Imagine my surprise, though, when I see trumpeted on the ACLU’s website the fact that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg issued an official proclamation stating that September 15 is “ACLU Day.” And then, I see the news that the ACLU just wrapped up its five year fundraising campaign where it hauled in a whopping $407 million dollars! That’s a lot of money to fund a radical organization like the ACLU that stands against traditional marriage and for unrestricted abortions.
As ADF’s President and CEO, Alan Sears, says in his book The ACLU vs. America, if the ACLU’s vision for America were realized, some of the following (along with much more) would be the reality in America today:
All legal prohibitions on the distribution of obscene material – including child pornography – are unconstitutional.
Pornographic outlets can locate wherever they please
Tax-funded libraries should not restrict access of children to pornography on the internet
The military cannot stop open displays of homosexual behavior within its ranks
All legislative, military and prison chaplaincy programs should be abolished
All criminal and civil laws that prohibit polygamy (having multiple wives) and same-sex “marriage” should be done away with.
This is just a small snippet of what the ACLU’s vision for America is. It should not surprise us that the ACLU’s vision is so radical. After all, this was the organization that represented NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association, a group that promotes pedophilia. The ACLU has a radical vision for America and now it has a massive war chest to back it up.
So church, the question is posed to us – what are we going to do about this? How are we going to counter the ACLU’s massive war chest? Are we to sit back and allow the forces of the ACLU to implement their vision for America unchecked?
These questions were answered by the founders of ADF many years ago when they established ADF and tasked it with a mission to defend religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, and the traditional family. And we have a plan for how to defend our most precious liberties. Check out our website for many ways you can get involved. But one thing is plain – we need for you to help us.
Now is not the time for the church to sit back and wring its hands. Instead, like David did on the battlefield with Goliath, we should run “quickly toward the battle line,” all the while proclaiming to this culture and society that no matter what weapons they have, “I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. … the battle is the LORD’s, and he will give you into our hand.” 1 Samuel 17:45, 47.
