Just when I was thinking that the ACLU might have gotten it's act together.
I've posted twice
about the ACLU doing something FOR Christians, rather than TOO Christians. I was starting to think that they'd gotten religion or something, but they haven't.
This story has been blogged about quite a bit -- if you've been living in a cave with no Internet access, check this out
, or you can find it here
. Post 7 or 8 at Free Republic has a picture of the seal. If you look closely, you can see the cross, middle right. That's what the fuss is all about.
Of course, the big picture of a pagan goddess right in the middle of the seal. Maybe we should complain about that
. I'm waiting, as are others
, for the ACLU to go after the name of the city/county -- after all, angels are religious figures, and many might be offended by the endorsement of a specific religious system over those who do not believe in angels. And what about all the 'San's in California? Are we going to see a wholesale name-change in California?
I don't even see this as the ACLU 'going after' Christians. I kinda agree with Ed Brayton
that this is silliness on both sides of the debate. Unfortunately, the city caved in.
