Kris, it's absolutely true.
In Massachusetts, the American Civil Liberties Union is representing the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) in a civil lawsuit brought by the parents of a 10-year-old boy who was raped and murdered by a NAMBLA member. The ACLU believes that organization has a perfect right to distribute materials that encourage statutory rape (i.e. sex with a child is automatically rape by statute or law). This is a criminal organization! And the ACLU is defending their "freedom" to advocate these kind of activities through their newsletter, which describes the pleasures of having sex with young boys (one of the slogans is "Sex before eight, or else it's too late") including graphic descriptions how to properly "lube up", and how to convincingly lie to the police if you get caught!
The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) was originally created with the noble purpose of ensuring voting rights, the right to free speech and press and other rights described (or implied) in the U.S. Consitution.
But they are going WAY overboard now. Unlike in the 60's or earlier, there simply isn't enough genuine cases of lynchings of black voters, or FBI storming the offices of left-leaning pamphlets. They've had to broaden the horizon in order to keep themselves in the spotlight. They defend things that are undefendable, they say, out of principle.
Check out the ACLU's site. Many of their activities are proper and even admirable. But they are so enamored with the principle that it must fight against any case where government or a group of people tries to stop other people from doing something, even if it is evil and vicious.
The only thing you should feel when shooting a terrorist: Recoil.
