My no, no square: ACLU takes on Mississippi Abstinence Summit

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is going up against the Mississippi Department of Health and Human Services for an Abstinence Summit that was held using government funding. Amplified has a video about the summit, from Huffington Post:

The ACLU is arguing that the use of tax dollar funds is a misappropriation, and violates separation between church and state.
My favorite quote from the event?

“Stop, don’t touch me there — this is my no, no square,” said one cheer by the Grenada High School cheerleaders. It wasn’t about school spirit.
