Yo, dickheads

All you assholes out there who say the ACLU is a 'liberal' organization, explain me this:


The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit Friday in the U.S. District Court in Jefferson City, Mo., on behalf of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church, which has outraged mourning communities by picketing service members' funerals with signs condemning homosexuality.


I'm not happy about this, but the 'Rotting Cryptkeeper'* has the same right of free speech I do. The ACLU fights for our rights, whether we're LGB or T and seeking marriage rights or whether we're deranged morons like Fred Phelps, or just downright hateful assholes like the KKK. The ACLU protects all of us, defending the Bill of Rights and the Constitution for anyone who's freedoms have been usurped or abrogated, even those who should be first up against the wall when the revolution comes.

*Thanks to Pam.
