← A lawsuit too far?

Quine's Avatar Jump to comment 14 by Quine

No, it is not too far. It is the job of the FFRF to complain about anything brought to their attention that may be a violation of law. It is not their job to determine if it is a violation; that is the job of the Court system. They mostly win, but will sometimes lose. If they never lost, you would suspect that they were being too conservative and did not press some cases in the gray area.

Of course, the other side is going to see it as overreach and evidence of a "war on religion" and start fanning out a whole deck of victim cards. Sorry, but because of our adversarial legal system and the position of the FFRF in that system, that characterization is unavoidable.
