Jackson and Sharpton

Postby Nyufrost » Fri Aug 22, 2003 6:54 am

This just popped into my head:

If the ACLU is so adamant about seperation of church and state that they demand the word God be stricken from the Pledge of Allegiance, then why do they endorse the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton as politicians and actually urge people to vote for them?

Just something to ponder ... :8

shouldn't the rich support bush, because he gives tax cuts to them? perhapes, but just because one part of someone's platform agrees with you doesn't mean that every part of their platform is going to agree with you, and... when you endorse someone as candidate, you don't endorse individual points - you endorse their every point - something that the ACLU may very well not do.

of course, that said, i don't see the ACLU endorsing any political candidate, either.

What, exactly, is wrong with a religious man being a democratic candidate? The problem only arises if they were to start enforcing their religious views on other people. Is there any evidence of them doing this?
