American Civil Liberties Union is a league of lawyers that keep a very serious eye on the rights of Americans. They won the case about the right to read sacred texts in public and won the case about prohibiting bible distribution in public schools unless it is specifically for a religious studies class. And others.

You don't mess with the ACLU. If I stopped someone from reading a bible in the lobby -- and I kid you not -- both myself and the owner could be sued for interfering with their rights. BUT if they read it ALOUD they are infringing on my rights and I can stop them without worry of legal action.

I kid you not.
