    Or Pro-Freedom of Speech. Which is stifled quite often in religion which causes the two to clash.

    Throughout history or currently you mean? Because I'm talking historically more so but even currently today.

    I thought we were discussing the ACLU and clashes between freedom of religion and freedom of speech.

    So I am looking for an example that relates to that topic.

    We're discussing the ACLU in the thread, yes.

    There is a clash between Freedom of Speech and Religion in general throughout history and currently today. My question is, what sort of example are you looking for? A previous example where the ACLU was involved? Because that was not related to that specific comment.

    I fully expect the ACLU to take this position. To maintain any credibility they have to, don't they?

    But it's a no-win anyway, so sayeth ample precedent.
