ACLJ Evokes Hitler Again

On March 8, 2008 By

The wingnuts at the ACLJ are at it again.

This time they are warning us about a recent court ruling in Salt lake City that basically says if one group is allowed to display a monument in a park – e.g. a Ten Commandments monument – then any other group shoud also be allowed.
