FEDERAL HATE CRIMES BILL RE-INTRODUCED IN CONGRESS

By Rev. Ted Pike
3 Feb 05

After being defeated in 2000, 2002, and 2004, the Anti-Defamation League's "Big Brother" federal "anti-hate" bill, with title changed to "Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005," H.R. 259, was reintroduced to the House of Representatives on January 6, 2005 by Ms. Jackson-Lee (D. TX). It is now in the House Judiciary Committee.

Both Houses of Congress last year made it clear that they overwhelmingly approve this bill: the Senate voted 65 to 33 in its favor on June 15th; the House symbolically favored it 213 to 186 on September 28th. This means very rapid passage unless lovers of free speech protest now.

This massive Orwellian bill is the most dangerous legislation since the Federal Reserve Act of 1913; probably even more dangerous, since it will lead directly to establishment of a vast federal anti-hate bureaucracy like Canada's ending free speech.

This bill will empower the federal government to invade states' rights in "hate crimes" law enforcement, breaking down traditional states' rights protection from federal intervention.

It will also exponentially empower the federal "thought police" to enforce the working ADL/federal definition of "hate" as "bias against homosexuality." This twisted definition makes the Bible, with its bias against homosexuality, into "hate speech;" those who adhere to the biblical standard into "hate criminals."

The world has been aghast at how the Pennsylvania ADL hate laws could arrest and imprison eleven Christians for simply preaching the gospel at a "gay-pride" event, possibly sentencing them to 47 years in prison and $90,000.00 fine each.

Such power to arrest and imprison Christian and conservative "haters," including pro-lifers, writers and conservative talk-show hosts, will dramatically increase if the federal government, assisted by the ADL, locks up the whole nation under a massive "anti-hate" thought police-state.


It is vital now that you call members of Congress and protest.

Call Congress at 202-224-3121 or toll free at 877-762-8762.

Call President Bush's Comment Line at 202-456-1111; or fax him at 202-456-2461.


Tell them:

For preaching the gospel, eleven Christians were arrested under Pennsylvania's hate crime laws.

This proves that late laws can be abused to persecute Christians and end free speech.

Do not approve the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005, HR 259.
