ACLU Wants To Censor The Ballot

The ACLU is now trying to decide what appears on your ballot.

Since the American people do not seem to endorse the perverted views of the ACLU, they are busy trying to keep us from getting to vote on amendments they have deemed inappropriate.

For a group that voices concerns about voter participation and access,
they seem all too willing to deny us the right to vote our opinions. This, of course, is not the first incident of ACLU hypocrisy. I have written before about their refusal to take on freedom of speech causes because it didn't dovetail with their supporters' agenda.

The ACLU is beginning to feel the heat in the kitchen, so it has taken its vile recipes to the pantry. It's time to rid ourselves of these pests.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (BP)--The American Civil Liberties Union joined other liberal interest groups Sept. 21 in filing a lawsuit against a proposed constitutional marriage amendment in Florida, seeking to prevent it from appearing on the ballot in 2006.

Similar to lawsuits against amendments in other states, the ACLU suit, filed at the state supreme court, argues that the proposed Florida amendment violates the state Constitution by dealing with more than one issue -- banning "gay marriage," Vermont-style civil unions and domestic partnerships.

So far, no state supreme court has prevented an amendment from going to the voters. Eighteen states have adopted such amendments, and others are likely to follow. Texans will vote on a marriage amendment in November.

"Same-sex marriage advocates know that when the people have the opportunity to vote they overwhelmingly uphold marriage between one man and one woman," Liberty Counsel President Mathew Staver said in a statement. "Their only hope is to misrepresent the facts and derail the amendment. Pure and simple, the ACLU and its allies want to take away our right to vote. But that will not happen."

The ACLU was joined in the lawsuit by Equality Florida and the National Center for Lesbian Rights. They represent six homosexual couples.

Last year state supreme courts in Georgia and Louisiana rebuffed efforts by liberal groups to keep amendments off the ballot
