I was looking for this old thread the other day and couldn't find it; today, I finally did.  It's important (and I miss WGSmith), so here's the link to it for our continued reference (as detractors of Liberty often try to claim the ACLU is anti-Christian):

ACLU Defends Christian Liberty  (from the old bnet)

Enjoy!

Thanks for the link, Kj
"To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture."-- Thomas Paine: The Crisis No. V (March 21, 1778)

I'm particularly proud of the way I found it, finally, after combing through the archives (a pleasant task, actually, remembering many old threads and perusing).  The old boards still have that annoying, mixed-up, non-chronological thing happening, so you can't make a detailed search.

I found a reference to the thread I wanted so that I had its exact title (I couldn't remember the title before), and then I could google it with quotation marks.  Bingo!  :)

excellent work!
on the old boards i would occasionally link to the religious liberty section at the aclu site. (here 'tis: http://www.aclu.org/religion/govtfundin … 60824.html) this would sorely provoke the aclu-haters, some of whom appear to spend their entire waking lives hating the aclu. (full disclosure: i'm not a member.)

I just read the first couple of pages.  Funny, it only took until the fourth post before the tolerant people started slamming Christians. 

Its nice to see some things never change.

Two gifts for you, CB:

First, a hankie.  So terribly sorry your feelings were hurt.

Secondly, a clue:  Intolerant people come in all groups.  Shouldn't be news.

Bonus gift:  Some people think "tolerance" means "give me props."  It doesn't.

Didn't say I was hurt.  In fact, I find it very funny.

I'm also terribly sorry that sarcasm is lost on you.
