Bill to take profit out of anti-religion suits

"An Indiana congressman plans to curb the ACLU's appetite for filing suits targeting religion in the public square by introducing a bill that denies plaintiff attorneys the right to collect attorneys fees in such cases. Rep. John Hostettler, R-Ind., is expected to file his measure next week to amend the Civil Rights Attorney's Fees Act of 1976, 42 U.S.C. Section 1988, to prohibit prevailing parties from being awarded attorneys fee in religious establishment cases, but not in other civil rights filings."WND

I personally have discussed the Civil Rights Attorney's Fees Act with a friend of my father, Rep. Robert Aderholdt, R-AL. The orginal intent of the Act was to help individual's that couldn't afford to protect their civil rights. The ACLU has turned it on its head, using its leverage often to threaten small schools and others that can't afford to fight them. I applaud this Congressman for stepping up to the plate on this one.
"Every other civil right case, there is some injury to somebody," American Legion attorney Rees Lloyd of Banning, California, told a Thursday rally in front of ACLU's Los Angeles offices. "Somebody lost their job ... somebody got beat up by authorities – they have some physical, mental, economic injury. But in an Establishment Clause case, it is someone who says, 'I take offense,' and the offense is based on religions, politics, philosophy, but there is no injury."WND

This is so true... Offense does not equate to injury. I hear so many on the left complain, and some go as far to say that Christians are forces our religion on them. The only forcing that goes on is when groups like the ACLU use Court orders to force Christians not to express our religion. A blatant attack on the First Amendment itself. And many times, as I've shown in earlier articles here, they attack Christianity while they defend Islam, Wiccans, and others. I'm glad to see that someone has stepped up on this. Perhaps with the current conservative makeup in the Congress, this bill will pass! But don't just hope! Let your voice be heard!! Write Your Representative about this! Contact your Senators! And....
