Without A CLU
The ACLU has discovered a new assault on the Bill of Rights: A Virginia law that bans nude camps for teenagers.
You can see their logic immediately, I'm sure. Allow the legislature to prevent teenagers from running around naked together, and pretty soon they'll be banning apple pie and baseball.
I'm not making this up. The actual quote from the ACLU representative is:
Using the overall logic of this law, legislators are now free to prevent children from swimming, playing baseball or riding a bus.

"Curiouser and curiouser" -- through the looking glass, we see and hear from the ACLU the strangest equivocations: now the unwholesome penchant for unrestricted nudity is matter-of-factly included with healthy and unwaveringly neutral activities like swimming, playing baseball, etc., the issue being, curiously enough, one of a "right to privacy".

Dear Mr. Lawler, Why Phil...! I'm surprised...! We practice insanity within the Church..., Why shouldn't the ACLU be allowed to practice insanity outside of it???
