    <center><h1><a href=http://www.aclu.org/ReligiousLiberty/ReligiousLiberty.cfm?ID=17237&c=29>ACLU defends freedom of religious expression</a></h1></center>

    <blockquote><h2>Citing ACLU Arguments, State Supreme Court Says Prosecutors Cannot Reject Jurors Who Are "Demonstrative About Their Religion"</h2>

    NEWARK, NJ-- The State Supreme Court ruled today that a prosecutor violated the New Jersey Constitution when he removed two jurors from a jury pool, one for wearing Muslim religious clothing and another for having engaged in missionary activity.

    "In this country, people have a right to express their religious beliefs without fear of discrimination by the government," said ACLU of New Jersey Legal Director Ed Barocas. "Excluding people from jury pools based on their religious belief or expression violates the principles of freedom found in the Bill of Rights."</blockquote>

    No scarey monsters here. No efforts to undermine individual religious expression. No attempts to ban religion. Except in the minds of those who fear such things.

    I am gald the ACLU took the right side in this case. This now makes the ACLU wrong in only 99.1% of all cases.

    Who said anything about an anus? Are we on the same page here?

    It was YOU who was on the "turd" subject. I was merely making an honest comment on your oh so flattering picture you seem to be oh so proudly displaying.

    You seem to enjoy appearing as an ass, verbally and pictorilly. Asses shit, thus the comparison to you.
