From the Heartland

This is my soap box, on these pages I publish my opinions on firearms and any other subject I feel like writing about.

ACLU deliberately re-writing the Constitution or least intentionally misquoting it?

Kevin at The Smallest Minority and several of the people he has linked seem to think so.

Their contention and one that I agree with is that the ACLU is selectively defining what they see as a right or civil liberty.

In explaining that the freedom of speech is the first right enumerated in the First Amendment the ACLU legal geniuses provide the following on their web site;

“Congress shall make no lawabridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Ellipsis are those little dots after "Congress shall make no law". Ellipsis means that there is something not deemed germaine to the subject that has been dliberately omitted out by the author/s.

Here is an unedited version of the First Amendment;

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The part that was INTENTIONALLY omitted by the brilliant legal minds of the ACLU is highlighted in bold.

Is the ACLU is dilerately lying to the people of the united states and the world?

Clearly the first right enumerated is the "Free exercise of Religion".

Even if one does not believe in a creator how can the First Amendment be read any other way?

If the scholarly minds ACLU are being intentionally deliberate in their deceit one has to wonder why.

That the ACLU is conducting and/or capable of this tactic is no suprise to many that have been conciously aware of that organization over the years.

That they are now becoming so publically blatant about it should make that many more people sit up and take notice at what the ACLU is really about.
