ACLU Shows Its True Colors

In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone, the ACLU is defending the the University of Michigan's practice of supplying publicly-funded Islamic footbaths for its Muslim students.

The "civil liberties" organization that is on the lookout for anything even remotely Christian appearing on public property actually has the temerity to claim that this move by the U. of Michigan has nothing to do with religion.

Kary Moss, director of the Detroit branch of the ACLU, said its review concluded the plan is a “reasonable accommodation” to resolve “safety and cleanliness issues” that arose when Muslims used public sinks for foot cleaning before prayers, which often spilled water on bathroom floors.

“We view it as an attempt to deal with a problem, not an attempt to make it easier for Muslims to pray,” said Moss, who likened the plan to paying for added police during religious events with huge turnouts. “There’s no intent to promote religion.”

Even the best contortionists in the world couldn't compete with this pretzel logic. Bottom line: the ACLU is an anti-American values, anti-Christian organization that will do anything to fulfill Gramsci's dream.
