What's the local chapter of the ACLU up to these days? Why, protecting our most precious liberties! Things like free exercise of religion and the right to bear arms you say? No. Let's take a look:
ACLU of Oregon Opposes Requiring Proof of Citizenship to Obtain Driver’s Licenses
March 23, 2005 – The ACLU of Oregon testified before the House Transportation Committee against HB 2608 which would require proof of U.S. Citizenship before a person can obtain an Oregon license or identification card.

OPPOSE STATE PROMOTION OF FAITH-BASED PROGRAMS IN OREGON
The ACLU of Oregon had urged Senators to oppose SB 818 A-Eng, because it would allow state-wide implementation of a pilot program encouraging state social services employees to assist clients to access faith-based programs operated by churches.
I for one am glad that drug addicts, the homeless, and criminals will have one less opportunity for rehabilitation. This proven method of help, Jesus, is now off the table thanks to the ACLU.
ACLU of Oregon Opposes Requiring Schools to Lead Students in Daily Pledge of Allegiance in Violation of Oregon Constitution
I can't believe the schools were even considering reciting the pledge on a daily basis. Never mind that no one was forced to participate, everyone has a RIGHT not to hear anything patriotic. It's right there in the constitution. Yeah, right there. Next paragraph. No, the one before that...
ACLU of Oregon Opposes Limiting Teen’s Access to Abortions
The ACLU of Oregon testified in opposition to HB 2605 that requires parental notification of a minor prior to receiving an abortion.
Underage girls can kill babies. Yep, right there in the Bill of Rights.
