Poor attempt at trolling

An anonymous poster left, "This is the garbage the GOP is sending out. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=694&e=4&u=/ap/campaign_mail"

An article that complains that those "hatemongers" in the GOP may have sent out a brochure saying that liberals want to ban the Bible, remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, and promote the gay lifestyle over hetero.

To which I spent about 5 minutes on ACLU's web site and replied:

So you haven't seen what the ACLU is up to, have you?

  1. They don't want anyone to teach Bible history
  2. Here's where the ACLU thinks that giving Bibles to schoolchildren does "irreparable harm"
  3. The ACLU thinks that we shouldn't use our religion as our moral compass
  4. ACLU urging courts to ban "under God" from Pledge of Allegiance
  5. The ACLU's gay/lesbian agenda

Here's my take, the ACLU wants to do everything the GOP letter said. Liberals realize that most Americans think the ACLU is going too far. However, since liberals can't argue the issues on their merits, they have to resort to portraying conservatives as "hatemongers", even though the only hate is coming from radical liberals.

You posted about the "garbage coming out of the GOP", but the story makes the GOP look good. There isn't one thing listed in the article that the ACLU isn't trying to do. You're the one with the egg on your face.
