Stop Paying For The Secularization of America

Danny Carlton blogged U.S. Representative John Hostettler has introduced legislation which seeks to prevent the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) from collecting millions of dollars in court awards when they seek to remove symbols of the Christian faith from society.

The Public Expression of Religion Act of 2005 (H.R. 2679) would prevent secular organizations from collecting attorney fees after suing communities to remove memorial crosses, Ten Commandments displays, or any other vestige of the Christian faith. The legislation reads, “The remedies with respect to a claim under this section where the deprivation consists of a violation of a prohibition in the Constitution against the establishment of religion shall be limited to injunctive relief.”

Our tax system has provisions for things to be made tax deductable, and if you are in a 35% bracket you save 35% of your donation from your taxes. It also has tax credits, which completely deduct from your taxes. I wish he would add a provision to say that a donation to the ACLU makes a 1000% tax debit, i.e. for every $1 you donate to the ACLU, it will RAISE your taxes by $10.
