Civil liberties for all! (Christians need not apply?)
The folks at Truth Revolt tried reaching out to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to find out why they’ve been so quiet on the controversy surrounding Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson.
A spokesperson at the ACLU repeatedly offered a ‘no comment’ when asked about the issue, but when finally pressed on the topic of his religion, that same person may have inadvertently let some honesty fly.
H/t Weasel Zippers:
The ACLU has been noticeably silent on A&E’s suspension of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. Robertson was suspended after discussing in an informal way some of the tenets of Christianity in regards to homosexuality and other behaviors the Bible considers sinful.
When reached for comment by TruthRevolt, the person answering the phones at ACLU headquarters would only repeat “We don’t have anyone available to comment on that issue” when queried about the Robertson suspension. When asked if it was because they don’t engage in issues regarding Christianity, the person answering the phones said “Yeah something like that” but again said no one was available for comment “on that issue.”
I thought the ‘A’ stood for ‘American’ but it may only stand for ‘Americans of a certain religious persuasion.’
So if not the ACLU, who will stand up for Robertson’s civil liberties?
