ACLU Awesomeness of the Day

The ACLU of Virginia warned a public high school about its practice of broadcasting an opening prayer at the start of their football games. A bunch of students of that high school began to float the idea of protesting the ACLU’s intervention—and the ACLU is encouraging them and making sure the school allows them their right to hold that protest.

As Kip Esquire notes in passing this link along: “Some get it, some don’t.”


  1. This makes me seriously think about kicking a few bucks the ACLU’s way.

  3. Rereading this: the students are protesting what, exactly? The ACLU’s letter? Based on the writing of the article, you’d think the letter carried the actual force of law, or something.

  4. The thought of getting rid of the prayer, I suppose. And, of course, for a segment of the population the mere initials ACLU immediately springs to mind liberal jackbooted thugs bent on destroying Christianity and enforcing America-last mulicultural communism or some such, a characterization I’ve never quite gotten (I do get rule-of-law types who consider the ACLU an obnoxious fly in the ointment of just going ahead and declaring everybody under suspicion as guilty, but screw them).
