Thou shalt not make any judgment regarding most private personal behavior. Man/woman is the master/mistress of the universe and his/her certification is paramount.

Thou shalt not worship or acknowledge God in the public square, for such an exposition could be offensive to humankind.

Thou shalt take from the rich and give to the poor. No private property is sacrosanct.

Thou shalt circumvent mother and father in personal issues such as abortion and sex education in public schools.

Thou shalt kill if necessary to promote individual rights in cases of abortion and euthanasia.

Thou shalt be allowed to bear false witness against thy neighbor if that person stands against secular humanism.

Thou shalt not wage preemptive war in any circumstance.

Thou shalt not impede the free movement of any human being on earth. All countries should be welcoming places without borders.

Thou shalt not prohibit narcotics or impede personal gratification in this area.

Thou shalt not limit the power of government in order to provide “Prosperity” to all.

I think the main one was left out: Thou shalt have no other gods before the ACLU. I guess that one is all-inclusive in the ten listed above.

Given as how so many 'conservatives' favor the limiting of government intrusion into our daily lives, so long as private personal behavior between two consenting adults results in no demonstrable harm, to either party, it's really no ones business.

Thou shalt not worship or acknowledge God in the public square, for such an exposition could be offensive to humankind.
Oh come now...I find some of these street corner preachers to be hugely entertaining, and often closer to the truth of their faith than the pastors of these suburban mega-churches. These latter being little more than temples to cults of personality.

Thou shalt take from the rich and give to the poor. No private property is sacrosanct.
Private property is the foundation of economic progress for all. Taxation is the price we pay for living in a complex society. Don't want to pay taxes, go live in a cave.

Thou shalt circumvent mother and father in personal issues such as abortion and sex education in public schools.
Quality sex-education programs have the side effect of delaying adolescent sexual activity thus helping to prevent unplanned or unwanted pregnancies that result in abortions.

Thou shalt kill if necessary to promote individual rights in cases of abortion and euthanasia.
Permitting a terminally ill patient some self determination as to the time of their death is not killing them. Allowing a brain dead patient to pass when further medical care will only prolong the inevitable is not killing them. Preventing the implantation of a blastocyst or allowing a woman to terminate a pregnancy in its first weeks is not killing a 'baby'. Get over it, and yourself.

Thou shalt be allowed to bear false witness against thy neighbor if that person stands against secular humanism.
:wtf:

Thou shalt not wage preemptive war in any circumstance.
Uhhh...yeah, its a violation of international law and treaties to which this nation is signatory to.

Thou shalt not impede the free movement of any human being on earth. All countries should be welcoming places without borders.
And this is a problem because...? Oh, yeah...that apocryphal "one world", "big brother" B.S. the religious right wing-nuts are always whining about.

Thou shalt not prohibit narcotics or impede personal gratification in this area.
Addictive personalities will always find a way to satisfy their addictions. Instead of waging a useless 'war on drugs', make them legal and tax the hell out of them to fund substance abuse centers instead of prisons.

Thou shalt not limit the power of government in order to provide “Prosperity” to all.
It is beyond the capacity of ANY government to provide 'prosperity' to all. The best government can do is provide a safety net for those unable to provide for their own welfare. After all, didn't Jesus say, "As you do unto the least of these, so you do unto me." ?

I think the main one was left out: Thou shalt have no other gods before the ACLU. I guess that one is all-inclusive in the ten listed above.
If you actually did ANY research on the matter, besides on <i>The Free Republic</i> website, you would find that the ACLU defends people of faith as often as they act against the worst excesses of religious extremists attempting to undermine the separation of church and state.

Those commandments could use some corollaries. The Boy Scouts are pwning the ACLU in the courts, sleep, Ginsberg, sleep.

Let's actually do SOME research into the matter then!

From the American Communist Lawyer's Association founder himself, Roger "the Red" Baldwin:

“I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately, for abolishing the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the properties class, and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal. It all sums up into one single purpose — the abolition of dog-eat-dog under which we live. I don’t regret being part of the communist tactic. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the communists wanted and I traveled the United Front road to get it.”

Top Ten ACLU Myths...hey, there's that number again!:

10. The ACLU is non-partisan:

The Truth: Not only were they founded on Communism, they are about as liberal an organization in existence. The public saw first hand in 1988 how the ACLU was involved in politics. ?The portrayal of the ACLU as a radical liberal lobby reached its climax in the 1988 presidential campaign when George Bush used ACLU membership as a black mark against his opponent Michael Dukakis. The perception had taken root that the ACLU of 1988 has about as much to do with civil liberties as the AT&T of 1988 has to do with telegraphs.

They may take a token case here and there for the other side to bolster its non-partisan claims, but those cases are far outweighed by their numerous other cases that are clearly intended to further its partisan agenda. They even keep scorecards on Congressmen and Representatives. Their claim of non-partisanship is what gives them their tax-exempt status, and nothing is further from the truth. They have split their organization into two in order to lobby their causes to the legislative branch.

Now, in the pursuit of "fairness", I'm going to click deep into enemy territory:

http://www.aclu.org/

There's the predictable whining about GITMO, not ONE thing about Nifong....that can't be because the ACLU doesn't care about the rights of the falsely accused, now can it?

Martin (The government has no right to steal someone else's land, and to tax you simply for owning land is silly)


Quality sex-education programs have the side effect of delaying adolescent sexual activity thus helping to prevent unplanned or unwanted pregnancies that result in abortions.

(The government has NO right to interfere, school districts should not take underage women to get abortions without the consent of the parents, if the kid is afraid of getting hurt, she can have legal help, and it should be up to parents if the kid is in sex ed classes or not. Whether you agree or not, your not the parent, its not your call.)

(Thats your opinion, I believe it is murder, to kill an unborn child and if you kill terminally ill patient, your creating a slippery slope, thats all im saying.)

(You have to consider each situation individually, The u.s.a. should have launched a pre-eminent strike in wwII, and sometimes, a pre-eminent strike is a good think, to say its never a good thing, is silly. If you havent noticed the world hates america, so why would I want the world, deciding law for my country. Besides, If you own a home, you want me deciding how you live, makes no sense.)

(All countries have a limited number of resources, they cannot take care of everybody, the united states has 47 million legal citizens who do not have health insurance, and we should let anyone in, regardless, if we have no idea who they are?, they could be in a gang, a pedophile, a murderer, rapist, drunk driver. Illegals commit crime by entering the country illegally, forging, or buying forged documents, and we cant sustain, health care for all the illegals, and teaching all the illegals kids, this is just facts)

Hey, Bully, here's another satirical set of liberalism's "Ten Commandments". Have fun dissecting them and giving them your particular spin.

1) Thou shall be your own god (humanism), or everything shall be thy god (pantheism), or if you wish, there is no god (atheism), or it is impossible to know if god exists (agnosticism). Since you are god (or anti-god), thou shall believe (or not believe) anything you like.

2) Thou shall make any graven image of any god you desire, only use non-toxic, dustless chalk that is green-friendly and will erase quickly lest your god's Ten Commandments offend others who may perchance read your words in the next generation (or the next day) and may find your ideas a bit too judgmental.

3) Thou shall take the name of the Lord thy god in vain any time you desire, because we as Americans have freedom of speech and freedom from all judgmental religions like Judaism and Christianity.

4) Forget the Sabbath day (go to the football game) and don't keep it holy, for you are your own god and as god, you can do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it.

5) Dishonor thy father and thy mother unless (due to their sex change operations) your father is now your mother and your mother is now your father, or if you're lucky, you now have two mommies, or you were born via in vitro fertilization – then you are to honor thy legislator or thy judge that allowed thy scientist to make the creation you have become.

6) Thou shall not kill unless you are a serial murder, child molester, O.J. Simpson or a murderous Iraqi dictator, for you have done nothing wrong and shalt not be shackled with the guilt of others for exercising your freedom to choose. Thou shalt use thy freedom to choose to kill thy unborn baby in thy womb if thou and thy baby's daddy break up during the period of gestation and you now hate thy baby's daddy; or it's not convenient for you to be pregnant because thou might loose thy sexy shape; or because Planned Parenthood gave you a free choice voucher – whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever ... (ad infinitum)

7) Thou shall commit adultery whenever thou art horny with anything (or anybody) thou wisheth to get thy freak on with. (Freedom of association, right?)

8) Thou shall steal if thou art poor, a bum, a deadbeat parent, an illegal alien, a member of any disaffected minority group, a politician trying to stir up class envy, or if thou art a member of the propaganda press and you steal military secrets and give them to America's enemies. That kind of stealing is all good.

9) Thou shall bear false witness against thy neighbor, especially if he is a right-wing, judgmental, mean-spirited, conservative Republican nut-job like Attila the Hun, Joseph McCarthy, Newt Gingrich, Tom "the Hammer" DeLay, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ronald Reagan (in absentia), James Dobson, Margaret Thatcher, Mother Teresa (in absentia) or the pope.

10) Thou shall covet thy neighbor's house (property taxes to support godless public schools).

--Thou shall covet thy neighbor's wife (Hollywood, opera, soap operas).

--Thou shall covet thy neighbor's manservant and his maidservant (renaming illegal immigration an "amnesty program" for migrant workers from Mexico to curry favor with thy Republican corporate masters; or if you are a Democrat, to create a permanent block of uneducated voters that will be indebted to you for generations, i.e., the same strategy that FDR used to build his bulletproof coalition of Jews, blacks, Italians, Germans, Irish and other disaffected ethnic groups with his New Deal programs of the 1930s).

--Thou shall covet thy neighbor's ox and his ass, and all that is thy neighbors (politicians that draft laws or judges that decree laws that in essence steal from "the rich" and give to "the poor" and call it "a tax credit," "socialism," "planned economy," "social engineering," "a gift," or as California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger recently called his proposed tax increase, "a loan"). Reasonable people call those government policies or judicial decrees stealing.
