The article focuses on the dilemma faced by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in the U.S. in July 1958. It notes on the transformation of the Church-State panel of Free Speech Committee to a full Church-State Committee. The transformation aids the individuals from ACLU for a deliberation on a special interest in Church-State matters. Moreover, it reviews the constitutional topic on "establishment -of-religion" for a maximum protection of civil liberties.
