ACLU WANTS HIGH SCHOOL PRE-GAME PRAYER BENCHED

The American Civil Liberties Union wants a federal judge to punish public school officials for a prayer that was recited last month before a high school baseball game.

ACLU of Louisiana executive director Joe Cook says it was “un-American and immoral” to allow an adult to pray over Loranger High School’s public address system.

This is the ACLU who is supposed to be protecting freedoms? Look at this quote from their homepage:
The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty. We work daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

It sure sounds good. So how about protecting the religious expression of students at a football game? Answer: If it has anything to do with Christianity, the ACLU will be opposed to it, not matter what their stupid charter says...
