Prayer…or Porn? I’m Offended!
By Stuart Epperson, Jr.
If you’re offended by prayer at a county commissioners’ meeting, you’re in luck! A multi-million dollar, pro-bono, tax-exempt, legal powerhouse known as the ACLU will fight for you!
If you’re offended by porn in a text book or at a public art gallery, tough luck! The ACLU will defend the porn. Why do they want to censor prayer but not porn?
Why would the ACLU, which, by the way, stands for the American Civil Liberties Union, be advocating censorship and intolerance at all?
And now they have sued you and me, the citizens of Forsyth County. The ACLU wants to censor the speech of a Muslim cleric, a Hindu priest, a Jewish rabbi, or a Methodist minister.
Some of these prayers may even offend me! But does the constitution give me a right ‘not’ to be offended? Of course not! Is not this pluralism of expression and tolerance what makes America great?
Even the United States Congress has opened with these offensive ‘sectarian’ prayers for over 140 years. And how many converts or government sponsored churches have resulted? The answer: zero.
Unless our elected officials stand up to this bully, the ACLU will have its way. Yes to porn and NO to prayer!
Beaufort Bailey, Walter Marshall and Ted Kaplan — three of your elected officials — have been against appealing the case on “political” grounds.
Friends, this is not about politics. It’s not about Republican or Democrat, right or left. It’s about “right or wrong”! It’s about free speech versus censorship.
Commissioners, please stand with us. The voters and the taxpayers of Forsyth County in protecting the right to freedom of expression. Freedom is always worth the price it takes to defend it!
It cost our founders a lot more than a few taxpayer dollars; many lost their very lives. Let’s send the ACLU bullies home so they can go back to defending porn and stop destroying prayer!
