|easy to discern this wolf in sheep’s clothing. Promoted as a patriotic group they actually would have us reduced to socialism or outright communist oppression. I’ll let the wolves themselves leak the real truth.
Board Member John H. Holmes admitted that they were only using the “civil liberties issue” in supporting the “cause of radicalism”
Founder Roger Baldwin said, “Civil liberties, like democracy, are useful only as tools for social change.”
Although they claim to defend constitutional rights, they don’t even believe in the document as written. They say that, “The Constitution as originally conceived was deeply flawed.” They even go so far as to brag, “The ACLU was the missing ingredient that made our constitutional system finally work.” This might explain why they say that, “The possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected” when the Bill of Rights plainly states that, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Such hypocrisy shows that the modern liberal is the contemporary equivalent of the ancient Pharisee. The Pharisees claimed to be defenders of the Law of God when in effect they dismantled it. Christ accused them in Matthew 15:6:” Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. “
This opposition to true freedom as established in our “Bible based” constitution is better understood, as we find out about the ACLU’s origins in the communist socialist cause. Roger Baldwin, the founder was greatly influenced by known communist Emma Goldman who tutored him in subversive ideology of Lenin as well as in humanism (based on the inherent goodness of man). He claimed Emma as “one of the chief inspirations of his life”.
During World War 1 Baldwin worked in the Bureau of Conscientious Objectors, a division of AUAM, to help draft dodgers with resistance and provide legal and financial aid. This resulted in controversy and Baldwin renamed the organization The Civil Liberties Bureau to avoid some of the flack. Roger refused to tone down his liberal talk and the AUAM sought a split, which resulted in the bureau renaming again; The National Civil Liberties Bureau.
One paper Baldwin wrote for the Bureau was called “unmailable” by the Post Office because of “radical and subversive views” which resulted in a FBI raid on their offices. Shortly thereafter he was drafted and upon resisting and openly spouting social reform propaganda, was imprisoned for a year.
In 1920 he moved his offices in with the Communist Party’s paper, New Masses and renamed the group a final time to the ACLU. He developed many ties with the communist movement and even wrote a book, Liberty Under the Soviets, which bragged about the “liberty won for anti-religion”. Roger joined many United Front causes, which he admitted to be communist front groups. He stated:
I Joined. I don’t regret being a part of the Communist tactic, which increased the effectiveness of a good cause. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the Communists wanted…”
For it’s first 60 years 80% of ACLU Board and Committee Members had Communist affiliations, and 90% of its cases were involved in defending Communists. Consider these cases and official positions:
- 1952 Led the campaign against exposing the Communist element in the entertainment industry.
- 1960 Fought to legally prohibit Christmas displays and celebrations at public schools.
- 1962 Argued that a daily prayer recital was an illegal “establishment of religion”.
- 1973 “Doe v. Bolton” case along with “Roe v. Wade” helped overturn anti-abortion laws.
- 1982 Positioned itself against teaching of Creationism in favor of exclusive Evolution.
- 1986 Argued against prayers before High School football games.
- Argued in favor of allowing open gays in the military.
They have also sought the following restrictions:
- Halt the singing of Christmas Carols in public facilities.
- Deny tax -exempt status for Churches.
- Remove all military chaplains.
- Remove all Christian symbols from public property.
- Prohibit Bible reading in classrooms even during free time.
- Remove In God We Trust from our coins.
Our enemies certainly know who they are battling against it’s just too sad that we are so naïve and ignorant not to recognize them as just that, enemies. 1 Peter 2:16 speaks of these people:
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
And again in Galatians 5:13:
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
Our best service to one another is to share our understanding and expose those who seek to steal our liberty and put us into bondage in their global plantation.
(Gal 2:4 KJV) And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:

|The ACLU Socialist Front
By Mark Mays
No single group has had as much a detrimental effect on our society in the last half century as the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU claims to be an unbiased, “neither conservative or liberal” organization devoted exclusively to protecting the civil liberties of all Americans. But their record proves just the opposite in that they almost always support the liberal anti-Christian side of every argument. In fact, if we only look into their background it is
