A Halloween Message. Be careful what you read.

Historically, the ACLU has helped our great nation make giant gains with civil liberties. But sometimes they just don't know when to shut up as in the Boston ACLU 2000 defense of NAMBLA's web page privacy. According to the Boston Globe The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) officials in the past have said "their main goal is the abolition of age-of-consent laws that classify sex with children as rape."

We believe that a five year old boy might trade oral sex to an adult for an ice cream cone and be all the more merry for it. But when that lad turns 14, knowledge of homosexuality and peer pressure can make him think he's a queer and cause him to commit suicide. We believe this is how Straight, Inc. (the late great juvenile drug rehabilitation program) aided in the murder of so many of its former clients. [Over 40 former Straight clients have committed suicide!]

Last year the school board of Puyallup, WA ruled to ban Halloween festivities during school time. A major reason? Celebrating Halloween would offend Wiccans (real witches). Well what is the ACLU doing about it? And what about werewolves, vampires and The Creature from the Black Lagooni?

So what are the Marines doing wrong in the photo? They are praying, that's what. They are bowing their heads in prayer. When we received an email that an ACLU spokesman named Lucius Traveler saw the photo and went ballistic stating, "These are federal employees on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately," we went ballistic too. So we investigated. Did Mr. Traveler actually say that? Turns out the ACLU does not even have a Mr. whatever his name is. It's all just a hoax.

But really, as for the ACLU you gotta' love 'em when you need 'em; and damn 'em when you don't. Like I say, the ACLU has made some great strides for us all; but then they've done some odious work too. This time they're off the hook. As for the Marines--God bless them one and all! Semper Fi.
