    This is 4.5 years old. Is this still the position of the executive?

    Progressive Insurance Chairman Gives $8.5 Million To ACLU

    Gift helps ACLU in their War on Christmas
    Dear Danny,

    In one of his recent columns, Chuck Colson relates the following story.


    In a Texas classroom, children were told to draw a tracing of their foot, and then put a message on the drawing. One little girl wrote "Jesus Loves Me" on hers. What happened next shows the abysmal state of religious tolerance in America.

    As Fox news anchor John Gibson relates in his new book, The War on Christmas, the child's teacher ripped the tracing off the board. "Don't you ever do this again," she said. The little girl burst into tears.

    When her outraged father called the school, nervous officials told the child to make another tracing. She did so—but this time, instead of scrawling "Jesus Loves Me," she drew a tiny cross that was so small it was almost invisible.
    Behind nearly every such incident you will find the ACLU. According to the New York Times, Peter Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance, believes in the mission and work of the ACLU so much that he gave them $8.5 million.

    Chairman Lewis' gift helps the ACLU promote their anti-Christmas agenda such as:


    Removing nativity scenes from public property

    Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools

    Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas in school projects

    Renaming Christmas break Winter break

    Refusing to allow a city sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade

    Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school

    Renaming a Christmas tree displayed on public property a Holiday tree
    In addition to their war on Christmas, the ACLU uses gifts like that from Chairman Lewis to:


    Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage

    Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers

    Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders

    Help legalize child pornography

    Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon

    Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association whose motto is "sex by eight or it is too late"

    Censor student led prayer at graduation

    Remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance

    Remove "In God We Trust" on our currency
    Recommended action: If you have a Progressive Insurance policy, cancel it. If you don't have a Progressive policy, let Chairman Lewis know you will not be buying one. (We recommend you do not purchase Allstate Insurance. We will explain our recommendation in a future letter.)

    Extremely important! Please forward this to your family and friends. The vast majority of them probably aren't aware of Chairman Lewis' gift to the ACLU.

    Thanks for caring enough to get involved.

    Sincerely,

    Don

    The story is shared now at Christmas time (by evangelicals) but the actual giving took place 5 years ago?

    Hmmmm.

    I don't care what an individual is doing with his own money. I dont' even care what a corporation does with funds set aside for donations. Progressive Insurance does a good job at providing cometitive auto insurance rates. I will use them if they can beat my current rate. ($600 a year for two cars and two people).

    This type of thing is as ridiculous as people who ask us to boycott Domino's Pizza because their president or some such officer is pro-choice.

    But bringing up these "horror stories" right at Christmas is a 100% money-making ploy. They say (or imply) "Look at how terrible it is; we must give more to fight . . "

    And Christians are suckers for giving to "needy causes", eh?

    Good point. Scare tactics tend to fill coffers rather quickly.
