The ACLU once defended the rights of Nazis to march in the largely Jewish suburb of Skokie, Illinois.  

While that organization believes those harboring that repugnant ideology have the right to express their hateful opinions, they’re acting to prevent Catholics from practicing medicine in accordance with their conscience:

On Wednesday, the ACLU sent a letter to federal health officials urging the government to force Catholic hospitals in the U.S. to perform abortions in violation of their core moral commitment to protecting the lives of the unborn.

Why is the ACLU going out of its way to deprive a religious group of the freedom of religion while defending the freedom of a hate-group to express its offensive opinions?
