I understand the value of an organization that constantly monitors our justice system to ensure that individual rights are upheld. I wish we had one. The ACLU claims to be one, but they certainly seem to take a disproportionate interest in the protection of child molestors, whether it be individuals or organization such as NAMBLA and the FLDS which have institutionalized the practice.
The argument the ACLU seems to be making is that the government has no concrete proof that all of the children are in danger or have been molested, therefore, those who are not proven to be damaged or in danger should be released...and the government should apologize to the FLDS.
This makes about as much sense as removing 4 children from a burning building, finding two of them in good shape, and so sending them back in.
Personally, I believe given their past pursuits that the ACLU simply does not see adults having sex with children as a crime or anything to get upset about. I think they view it as a lifestyle choice between consenting adults...and children. What they seem to fail to grasp is that this society has decided that human beings need time to develop some brainpower and experience before being turned loose on adults. The age may be subjective, but it's an educated guess. You don't have the right to abuse, molest or have sex with children in this country. Not even your own.
Maybe someday the ACLU will be overtaken by people interested in establishing and maintaining an objective justice system that upholds the rights bestowed us in the constitution. It's not there today. If protecting children against predatory adults is the act of oppression, color me oppressive.
