Why is the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) anti-faith? I supported them when they fought for the underdog and against discrimination. Now they attack any teacher who dares to suggest that life was designed. See this recent news item from Maine.
Our legal system is confused. It treats Atheism as the preferred and protected religion of the United States. If you suggest design, and discuss the new scientific evidence of design, you are considered to be imposing your religious beliefs on Atheists. But if an Atheist distorts the evidence to champion Darwin and his theory of unguided evolution, his religious views (Atheism) are protected. To me, your religion is your belief system when it comes to God. As I read the Constitution, ALL religions, ALL belief systems about God, are protected. We are free to choose any one. So we should be free to discuss scientific evidence of design in classrooms, to offer alternatives to Darwin. We should be intellectually free. Surely our founding fathers, who all believed in God, did not mean to prohibit discussion of evidence for God.
If I could find the right case/client for this, this is something I would love to take on in court.
Thanks for reading.
