The Rutherford Institute is a non-profit legal organization “dedicated to the defense of civil liberties and human rights.” Rutherford lawyers represent people who feel their constitutional rights have been threatened. But, Rutherford also has an educational mission as well, and offers a speaker series. Kent Willis of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia gave a two-hour presentation talk this week.

John Whitehead is a frequent guest on WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now. He was most recently a guest on June 29.

  One Response to “Kent Willis of the ACLU speaks at the Rutherford Institute”

  1. In ref to the speech on the ACLU…
    I just want to say that the problem with all this , is that this country was founded on the foundation of God and Jesus, and although I know the threats of the freedom of religion in our country, my heritage as well as every other American’s heritage in this country is to teach Christianity. The freedom of speech was for the Christians.
    We cannot go to other countries and do what these people are being allowed to do , to cancel our heritage, they would kill us. And they do just for sharing Jesus there at times, not even taking Him in to the schools or the government.
    This country was opened for the freedom to worship Jesus Christ … People flocked from here, everywhere for that freedom… And how can anyone look at a veteran and take a Bible and prayer and the UNITED STATES FLAG out of the schools. IN GOD WE TRUST IS WHY WE ARE A GREAT NATION WITH MUCH
    People do not want prayer at a graduation, but He is the first place they turn during a memorial service. Did anyone contact the ACLU about Virginia’s memorial service.
    A sign stated , when will this stop. It started when the Bible and prayer was takem out of the schools. My answer to this question was, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS>> The United States of America proudly endorses the TEN COMMANDMENTS>>
