Happy Festivus to all ACLU folk!

As long as I'm linking John Scalzi in the post below, I should endorse his intention to donate one dollar to the ACLU for every person who goes to his blog and identifies themselves as (a) an ACLU lawyer, and (b) a Christian. This is apparently in response to someone who insists that no Christian could possibly be an ACLU lawyer, as if the philosophies of the ACLU and Christianity are of the "Never the twain shall meet" variety. For myself, I'm getting pretty damned tired of seeing the word "Christianity" in this country refer to conservative Evangelicalism. One can be a perfectly good Christian and still believe that, say, forcing kids to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, complete with the "under God" part, is a bad idea. And more to the point, one can believe that and still be a bad Christian.
