ACLU Defends Freedom Of Muslim Religion

Behold the latest pronouncement from those tireless champions of religious freedom at the ACLU:

ACLU and NYCLU Statement On Controversy Over New York City Islamic Center

August 19, 2010

Religious freedom is one of America’s most fundamental liberties, and a central principle upon which our nation was founded. For hundreds of years, even in the face of opposition, religious pluralism and tolerance have sustained and helped to define our nation. Still today, we must continue to boldly oppose religious discrimination rooted in cultural stereotyping, and resist those who seek to trade away our most precious values for political advantage.

We applaud those government officials who have stood up for religious liberty and defended the right of private citizens to build a mosque and community center in lower Manhattan. These officials have rightly understood that we must always — especially in times of controversy — vigilantly uphold our core values, including a faith community’s right to build a house of worship, whether a mosque, a church, or a synagogue. The horrific events of 9/11 call on all of us to keep a close watch over our fundamental freedoms. When we violate one group’s freedom, everyone’s liberty is at stake.

Throughout America’s history, almost every religious group, including Jews, Protestants, Catholics and Muslims, has been the target of discrimination. Tolerance and fairness have generally prevailed, but only after principled voices have transcended the fear and hatred.

The American Civil Liberties Union has defended the right of all religious denominations — from majority faiths to marginalized religions — to establish places of worship, and for Americans to pray, or not, as they choose.

Obviously the ACLU are does not believe in a vengeful god (or indeed any god) or they would not risk being struck down by lightning for uttering such contemptible lies.

We will continue that fight now. Preventing Muslims or any other group from freely practicing their faith is unconstitutional and goes against the very core of American freedom.


Americans must ensure that our political leaders know that discrimination is a losing proposition and that adherence to the Constitution is not optional. We must not let those who seek to undermine our nation succeed by forcing us to betray our most fundamental American liberties.

Says the 501c3 taxpayer ‘charity’ that has just sued to get the right to defend a Muslim terrorist, an avowed enemy of the United States, from attacks by the US military.

    America…….. don’t be so gullible because if you remain this way it will change the way you live and here is why:


    President Barack Obama supports the “Victory Mosque at ground zero while 65% or more of America says NO to this construction. Since the President says he is a Muslim ( http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=tCAffMSWSzY#t=28 ) ( http://therealrevo.com/blog/?p=30879 )or so he says and he is to embarassed to actually tell us all the truth (again), then it is evident that he does not care about any of the Americans killed on 9/11 but only about the feelings of Islamists who want to build this grand “Victory Mosque”.

    Attached are videos #1, #2, #3 & #4 of what our President supports and what kind of “Change” he wants to bring to America. Change that is NOT in the best interests of America and our laws.







    Flight 93, Shanksville, Pennsylvania fields, there is also another Muslim victory site being constructed as we speak!

  2. proreason says:

    Since when does our principle of religious freedom give a religion the right to impose a legal system different than the one we have had in place from the founding?

    Aside from the insanity of Sharia, acquiesance to allowing religion to trump the law is not just looney, it’s suicidal.

  3. GetBackJack says:

    Thanks, Tater.

    Islam is not a religion. It is a death cult. It has no protection under the US Constitution.

  4. beautyofreason says:

    I’m waiting for the day the ACLU comes out against our tax dollars funding the 9/11 imam’s speeches about Islam in the Middle East.

  5. Liberals Demise says:

    I’m waiting for the Muslim Religion to behead the ACLU……….just because!

    • JohnMG says:

      The practitioners of Muslim? And the ACLU?

      You can’t tell the bastards apart without a score card. I’d like to see some DNA test results.

  6. wardmama4 says:

    When I stop laughing about the ACLU defending ‘religious freedom’ – I will point out that this is not about religious freedom nor stopping any one nor any religion from practicing their faith – THIS IS ABOUT BUILDING A MOSQUE AT GROUND ZERO WHICH WAS DESTROYED BY RADICAL TERRORISTS WHO HAPPENED TO BE MUSLIMS

    It is to laugh to hear liberals, Democrats and the ACLU defending free religious practice – what a load of crappola and hypocrisy and duplicitous lies – Lying Liars who are Lying – no wonder they are defending radicals who happen to be muslims.

  7. Move_Zig says:

    (Kyle’s mom sputtering: ‘What! What! Whaaat!???’)

    Let’s see if I have this right. The ACLU has spent millions of dollars and shyster man-hours in attacking school prayer, suppression of religious objections to homosexual redefinition of religious marriage, homosexual adoption and public acts, trying to win homosexuals’ access to other peoples’ little boys via the BSA (and now, it would seem, Lesbian access to other people’s little girls through the GSA) and otherwise fighting a decades-long Orcs campaign against any form of Christianity anywhere … and now they have the gall to thump their sunken chests, screaming ‘religious freedom?’

    Sheer, unmitigated gall and effrontery.

    Also, I must echo the sentiments above that Islam is not a religion. Religions have at their core the preachings of love, charity and forgiveness.

    Ideologies, such as Nazism, Communism and Islam, preach hatred, enslavement, attack, theft, subjugation and murder. Islam has far more in common with Statist ideologies than with any religion of peace / love.

    It’s long past time to tear aside the camouflage and call Islam what it is, and it is certainly not a religion.

    “PreventingMuslims or any other group from freely practicing their faith is unconstitutional and goes against the very core of American freedom.”

    There, the message is clear.

  9. OxyCon says:

    Ummm. Wasn’t that a muslim religious ceremony Obama just conducted inside the White House?

    Sure sounds like the ACLU applies that seperation of Church and state equally, or maybe they are being fair after all since there’s no seperation of “mosque and state” in the Consitution.

  10. JohnMG says:

    Once again it bears repeating that the ACLU is nothing more than a Communist front organization that has devoted itself to the DESTRUCTION of American civil liberties.

    Typical liberal/socialist projection in full view. What chutzpah!!
