I must say, I am extremely ambivalent about the ACLU. I have joined them and "carried the card" on three separate occasions in my life, and then quit in rage. To my mind, the ACLU is at its best when it is defending unpopular speech without regard to content. My father, who served as "the" Republican historian at a Big Ten University, taught me at a very early age that the "First Amendment doesn't mean a damn thing for people we agree with -- it is only important for people whose ideas we despise." Unfortunately, the ACLU has increasingly focused on content, and pushed a particular social agenda. While one might say that the LA County seal case is a noble defense of the Establishment Clause, it seems that the "Establishment Clause" argument is a mere pretext to advance a political agenda that wants to drive all religion from public life. And that's annoying.
