Congressmen defend Boy Scouts against ACLU thugs

From WorldNetDaily...

Ninety members of Congress filed a brief yesterday with a federal appeals court declaring support for the U.S. Defense Department in its sponsorship of the Boy Scouts of America's national jamboree.

The department's backing of the quadrennial event, attended this year by more than 40,000 Scouts, was opposed in a 1999 lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The ACLU contends federal government sponsorship violates the First Amendment, because the Boy Scouts require members to swear an oath to "do my duty to God and my country."...

Represented by the American Center for Law and Justice, the lawmakers' friend-of-the-court brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit seeks a reversal of a lower court decision that declared the Defense Department's sponsorship unconstitutional.

The 1972 statute passed by Congress, the lower court declared, violates the so-called "separation of church and state."

From defending pedophiles who want to hide their crime, to attacking the Boy Scout for trying to keep those pedophiles out of their midst, one has to wonder what the ACLU's agenda truly is.
