I guess those who wondered just how far the depravity of the ACLU would go have their answer. We should have known that the slippery slope that the ACLU was on due to defending the rights of the KKK and NAMBLA would eventually lead to them defending even the likes of Jerry Falwell. Now remember, this is the same moron who, after the WTC bombings, said:
The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this. And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say, "You helped this happen."
With his partner-in-stupidity, Pat Robertson, replying "I totally concur." Of course, Robertson then claimed a few days later that he considered Falwell's comments "totally inappropriate." Oh hell, what's the difference, right? Hilarious.
But yes Jerry, even a deviant like you gets defended by the ACLU when the legal issue is important.
