Stop the ACLU! Blogburst - It’s a Druid Thing

I’ve been ranting for quite some time about the ACLU and their, well, wacky ways.  Just when I think I’ve seen everything, they manage to raise the stupidity bar a tad bit higher.

Now they are demanding that the city of Greer, S.C. drop charges and say "sorry" to a couple that are insisting they were picked on by police because they had a religious bumper sticker on their vehicle. 

Tony and D.J. Gainey said police pulled the couple over in May because of the bumper stickers on their car. 

One of the stickers read, "It’s a druid thing."

The Gaineys said they believe in druidism — a nature-focused religion.

Okay.  So the Gaineys say that the bumper sticker saying "It’s a druid thing" is the reason the officers pulled them over.  Um, I think the Gaineys overlooked some other rather important reasons:  driving with a suspended license, not having proper license plates or proof of insurance. 

But the ACLU, in all of their "social cause" wisdom, support the Gaineys and have demanded that all charges be dropped and an apology be issued because they were being singled out due to their religious beliefs.  …and ole Mr. Gainey has some pearls of wisdom, too:

"I shouldn’t been driving. I am guilty of that, but the stop never would have taken place if they wouldn’t have violated our rights," said Gainey.

HOW SMART YOU ARE!  You are so right!  You shouldn’t have been driving with a suspended license, no insurance and improper plates.  You were <gasp> BREAKING THE LAW.  Because you were BREAKING THE LAW, you were pulled over by law enforcement.  This isn’t being singled out….this is some guy trying to get out of a criminal offense. 

The ACLU continues down a path that excludes logic, rational thought, common sense and credibility.  Part of me wants to rant forever about how idiotic the ACLU’s position and actions are as they relate to this case.  But the wiser, more reasoned part of me knows it isn’t necessary.  Their actions and their positions speak louder than any words I could possibly utter.
