A former coworker and fellow member of the "Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy" e-mailed me worried about Christians, the ACLU and what's happening in this country.

I think it is time Christians become a little more vocal and involved! Removing the basic principles this country was founded upon is going to be America's demise.
The other question I have and found no intelligent answer: Why is it we are supposed to accept the Gay and ACLU now with their anti Christ message when they were shunned not so long ago?
I honestly believe that the tide has turned. The very fact that the Red Star Tribunal (aka The Minneapolis Star Tribune) would print this article praising religous values is a small bit of proof that the people have had enough of the liberal bullshit. And they know it.
The Left may try to fake a sudden belief in "moral values", but that will just put religion back out in the open where it belongs instead of hidden away and sneered at. They realize that they can no longer openly insult religous people and get away with it as they have for the past 30 years.
And Christians are becoming more vocal and involved. Big time! They got George Bush re-elected and, as far as vocalism goes, they were all willing to tell the exit pollsters that moral values was their top concern. They're speaking out and becoming more empowered all the time. The country wasn't taken over by liberalism overnight. What you're now seeing is the beginning of the pendulum swinging the other way.
The fact is, the ACLU wasn't shunned not that long ago. The reason that you're seeing more and more about them is that they're being "outed" as the extreme left-wingers that they are. Their squirming little lawyers are being exposed to the light of day, and most people are disgusted by what they're seeing.
Take heart. The libs see the writing on the wall and they are in an absolute panic. Why do you think that the Democrat party is in such disarray and keeps shooting themselves in the foot? They may be in denial but, deep down, they realize that the tide is turning against them.
I truly believe that what we are seeing is another revolution to undo the one that took place in the 60's and early 70's. While the Leftists of that time were screaming "Revolution" every chance that they got, nobody really believed that it was a real Revolution.
And now we're seeing another. Keep your powder dry folks, and keep fighting the good fight.
