A.C.L.U. defends lunatic fringe rather than legitimately downtrodden!

I believe the ACLU could be doing a lot more good in focusing on
issues affecting the disenfranchised homeless and poor of our country rather than issues concerning religious symbols in our public life. The ACLU seems to relish unseemly, unpopular causes
like making a pariah of the Ten Commandments, "In Good We Trust," etc. I don't intend to go into further detail on this except to say, I wonder where this is all going to end?
Our public buildings, courtrooms, schools, etc., certainly need to have a theme or some type of symbolic expression of what we
believe in. It's important to our children to know that we stand for a particular system of morality and justice, both as a people and as a nation. Otherwise, if we do not do these things, then what are we? After doing some research, I've come up with an idea of something that can be used without reference to G-d or religion. Finally,I don't profess to being an expert on the matter:
Laws of Human Behavior
First, Always honor and respect parent(s) for they have given you life and have sustained you.
Second, Only seek out the friendship of those who are truthful, honest, and respectful of others.
Third, Never lie, cheat or steal. Always remember, your good name must carry you through the rest of your life.
Fourth, Do not walk in the path of the scorned, the immoral or the sinful. Never take what doesn't belong to you.
Fifth, Respect and revere the sanctity of marriage, such as your own and the marriages of others.
Sixth, Never act out of a sudden rage of anger, or if in a premeditated state, to cause physical harm to another, or to take another person's life.
Seventh,Be merciful when you judge others, love the law, and protect your cherished freedoms, above all else.
