A group of demonstrators sang Christmas carols in front of the Washington, D.C., office of the American Civil Liberties Union today to protest the organization for its attempts to take religious references out of the public square.
Over 25 volunteers with Public Advocate of the United States sang at the office to highlight “the ACLU’s continuing disregard for the rights of their many pro-family targets,” the group said in a statement.
The volunteers say they wanted to especially draw attention to the ACLU’s lawsuit against the Pentagon.
As WorldNetDaily reported, the Pentagon is warning its bases not to sponsor Boy Scout troops after agreeing to settle an issue in a five-year-old lawsuit brought by the ACLU, which charged the government with improperly supporting a group requiring members to believe in God.
The ACLU complained the Boy Scouts of America “requires troop and pack leaders, in this case government employees, to compel youth to swear an oath of duty to God.”
“Public Advocate hopes that the spirit of the Christmas season will fill the members and employees of the ACLU and that they will embrace the morals and principles of groups like the Boy Scouts and renounce their efforts to destroy traditional values in America,” said Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio at the event.
Delgaurdio says some staff from the legal organization joined the singers outside the office.
“It is exciting to see all these people singing Christmas carols, including the ACLU staff members that have joined us today,” he said. “Regardless of our differences, we are all proud to be Americans this Christmas, and may God bless those that are currently in harm’s way to bravely protect our freedoms. We must remember that the Boy Scout troops in danger of being kicked-off these military bases are made up of the sons of those brave soldiers, sailors and marines.”
Much of the ACLU’s litigation targets schools and other pubic institutions that make use of Christmas music or displays the group believes are a violation of the First Amendment Establishment Clause.

The December issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “EXTORTION: How the ACLU is destroying America using your money,” documents how the American Civil Liberties Union legally extracts millions of dollars from unwilling taxpayers to fund its long-term and relentless campaign to remove every vestige of Christian expression from America’s government, schools and public property.
