ACLU: No Faith In Chatham County

As usual, the Azzhole Communist Litigation Union is stepping in and attempting to deny people their Right to practice their faith (via the N&O)

PITTSBORO – The chairman of the Chatham County commissioners would not say Friday whether he would comply with the ACLU’s request to stop invoking Jesus Christ’s name in prayers at government meetings.

“[W]hen it is my turn to pray, I will use my personal judgment just like my fellow commissioners will,” Bunkey Morgan wrote in a letter responding to the civil liberties group.

We are a country that was founded on Freedom of Religion, and being able to practice those religious beliefs. Those beliefs included Jesus Christ. The ACLU would like to deny those beliefs. Their code is “Rights for me, but not thee, unless you agree completely with me.”

On April 10, the ACLU of North Carolina sent a letter to Morgan asking the board to “stop the practice of using sectarian invocations at Chatham County commissioners meetings.”

In addition to the letter to Morgan, the ACLU sent letters to the Pittsboro Board of Commissioners, Clayton Town Council and Raleigh City Council, which the newspaper reported also invoked Christ’s name at their meetings.

Though prayer at government meetings is allowed, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that sectarian prayers are unconstitutional.

Unless of course those prayers are on mats facing Mecca, right? They can say it, but it doesn’t make it right. I’d like to put their rulings and the feelings of the ACLU up against the thoughts of the Founding Fathers.

In their discussion about the letter at a meeting Monday, the Chatham commissioners were indignant.

“No man is going to tell me how to pray,” Morgan said.

Good for him. Hopefully, the commissioners will stand their ground against these people who want to take God away from any public pervue.

Commissioner Patrick Barnes said the ACLU would spend its time better by picking up trash on U.S. 64.

One Response to “ACLU: No Faith In Chatham County”

  1. […] A few days ago, I mentioned the ACLU taking on the Chatham County (NC)¬†Commissioners over the use of Jesus’ name at government meetings, in which the ACLU was basically told to go to Hell. Of course, the ACLU probably doesn’t believe in Hell, and, would probably sue if someone in government actually said that to them. It is part of the Christian religion, after all. […]
