ADL'S NEW PUBLIC SCHOOL HATE BILL
By Rev. Ted Pike
22 Feb 10
The Anti-Defamation League is determined to establish federally-enforced
promotion and protection of homosexuality in America’s primary
and secondary public schools. This year ADL repeatedly boasted it was
the driving force behind the pro-homosexual federal hate crimes bill.
Now ADL is making another attempt to sodomize America. Their latest
legislative poison is called The Student Nondiscrimination Act
Like the hate law, HR 4530 gives grade and high school homosexual
students special rights and protection over the majority. It claims
to protect students who feel harassed or intimidated because of their
homosexual orientation or desire to be perceived as the opposite gender.
If they feel pressured to the point that they don’t want to participate
in a school activity, the bill says these students deserve the same
federal advocacy given blacks under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
This bill also includes special protection to heterosexual students
who feel harassed or intimidated to not associate with homosexuals.
These students may also invite federal prosecution of their “homophobic” fellow
students, teachers or parents.
HR 4530 says if school officials do nothing when they know a student
is being harassed because of their homosexuality or heavily pressured
not to associate with a homosexual student, these authorities face
federal indictment. State and local governments which do not energetically
educate and punish those who intimidate pro-gay students will lose
There is no special protection for heterosexual students
under assault for their sexuality. Like ADL’s hate law,
ENDA and cyber-bullying bill, this legislation blatantly violates the
14 th amendment’s ban on special rights and protections to some
Who Defines Harassment?
While researching my video, Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians (Watch
it here!), I had lengthy talks with Canadian police.
I asked the head of the Vancouver, BC hate crimes unit what police
did when they wanted to indict a right-wing “hater” who
hadn’t violated the law.
“We just get him on a harassment charge,” she told me.
She made it clear that the term “harassment” is so vague
and subjective it can easily and legally be used to prosecute
virtually any speech critical of others. With malicious intent, The
Student Nondiscrimination Act does not adequately define “harassment” or “intimidation.” If
this bill passes, these ambiguous terms will be enshrined in federal
law providing an excellent pretext for persecution of Christian students
Under this act, homosexual teens can decide when they’ve been
sufficiently “harassed” or “intimidated.” A
grade school boy or girl who thinks they are victimized can persuade
their local liberal, feminist or gay district attorney and summon the
force of federal intervention. If such “victimized” children
want to launch civil lawsuits against students, parents or church leaders,
this bill makes it clear nothing should prevent them. As in workplaces
if ENDA is passed, school authorities will be afraid to provoke homosexual
students in any way. Although penalties are not stipulated, HR 4530
is intended to expand the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and
subsequent civil rights acts which contain harsh penalties for discrimination,
There is no evidence that widespread harassment of homosexuals and
transgenders in primary and secondary education is an “especially
severe problem,” as the bill alleges—not with tolerance
education and gay/straight activist groups abounding on campuses! As
with their hate bill, ADL is exaggerating an “epidemic of hate” in
public schools, dramatizing rare abuses to justify massive federal
HR 4530 amounts to federal endorsement of adolescent homosexuality
as a legitimate, normal alternative. It puts homosexuality on a par
with race, religion and gender, characteristics which the government
already protects. If passed, it will flood government-sponsored educational
programs into public schools to promote homosexual self-esteem. Its
encouragement of homosexuality on the grade school level will destroy
young consciences even before they have formed.
You Can Stop this Outrage!
Last year, ADL presented its David Ray Ritcheson Hate Crimes Prevention
Act (See, ADL's
New 'Trojan Horse' Hate Bill) and adjunct legislation to
the cyberbullying bill, the Adolescent Web Awareness
Requires Education Act (AWARE) (See, Hate
Bills: Protest Calls Flood House Judiciary!). Through these
bills, the League tried to set up the federal government in pro-homosexual
education and anti-bias hate crimes enforcement at every level of
public schooling, from kindergarten to grad school. These attempts
failed, but ADL’s determination is unwavering. In yet another
attempt, before mid-term elections next fall, ADL hopes to quietly
move HR 4530 through Congress unnoticed.
There is a good chance they can. Despite 41 Republicans in the Senate,
five or six liberal Republicans could vote for it, just as they helped
pass the hate bill last July. The Student Nondiscrimination Act,
introduced by homosexual Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), and with 61 cosponsors,
is now in the House Education and Labor Committee. This is the same
committee which powerfully endorsed ENDA this fall. That’s because
18 of 19 Republican House members, not hearing much protest from the
American people, didn’t even bother to show up.
We can’t let that happen again. This bill, slanted toward ostensible
protection of America’s youth, is designed to pass without much
controversy. Yet it is just as dangerous as ENDA and the cyber-bullying
bill—setting up the federal government as a special protector
and encourager of homosexuality to our nation’s youngest and
most vulnerable citizens.

Tell them: “Please do not vote for the Student
Nondiscrimination Act, HR 4530. This bill denies equal justice. It
gives homosexual students special rights over other students, in violation
of the 14 th Amendment to the Constitution. There is little evidence
that persecution of homosexual students is a severe national problem
meriting federal jurisdiction.”
Here is your vital last statement: “If
the senator or congressperson votes for this dangerous legislation,
I and my friends will vote out Democrats in the midterm election!”
