When crazy people slag the ACLU for, they think, ruining America and enforcing gay sex acts on all of us they never remember they times they (ACLU) intervenes on behalf of gun owners, Christian Scientists, observant sects of many religions.

Put the shoe on another foot

What if the woman was Muslim? The library would not force her to dress as a witch. That would seem like a major law suit to them. It seems like Americans are disreguarded for their beliefs but foreignors are not. It is time for Americans to take a stand and remind others that we cannot be walked on!!
