The ACLU will fight any fight that is against civil rights.  They are blind
when it comes to other issues.  Yes this means they have supporters who are
communists or socialist.  Primarily because they fight for their liberties.
If it is an issue where civil rights are involved the ACLU will gladly
help.  That would be the case if a religion was discriminated against as
well as race or creed.  Just because they have backed seemly evil ideas
doesn't mean the organizations is evil.

The same type of argument could be used against people who support Open
Source.  The founders of open source are seemly for piracy since they oppose
copyrights.  There for they are evil and so is all of Open Source.  While I
don't subscribe to this argument, it is one that other to.  You need to be
careful to actually look at why an organization or movement exist before
calling it evil.
