Moral Majority plea goes unheeded by Vermonter

The head of the Vermont Civil Liberties Union has been asked by the Moral Majority to help finance a campaign against the VCLU's parent organization, the American Civil Liberties Union.

VCLU director Barry Steinhardt said he won't oblige Moral Majority president Jerry Falwell's request for a $15 contribution to fight what Falwell called ''the single most destructive threat to our traditional American way of life.'' Steinhardt speculated he got on the Moral Majority's mailing list because he once requested information about the group.
