ANTI-HATE LAWS WILL MAKE YOU A CRIMINAL.
Ominous federal law will soon end free speech in America!
By Rev. Ted Pike
In 2004, eleven Christians were arrested and jailed in Philadelphia
for the “hate crime” of peaceful evangelism at a gay
pride parade. For the full story, visit www.truthtellers.org
Hate Laws End Free Speech.
- A Christian was fined $6,000 for printing 3 Bible verses against
homosexuality. A newspaper was fined $6,000 for accepting his ad.
Christian printer was fined $5,000 for refusing to print stationery
for homosexual activists. He was bankrupted after spending $175,000
contesting the charge.
- A Christian was fined $35,000 for distributing “hate literature”--tracts
critical of homosexuality.
- Church school
administrators were forced to hire a known homosexual, under threat of prison.
- A pastor was told it’s
a “hate crime” to hand out gospel tracts, punishable by prison.
- Two Christians were indicted for criticizing Islam, another for
- Two political activists were indicted, facing 7 years in prison,
for describing Islam as a “wicked faith.” A filmmaker
was threatened with arrest for using the term “homosexual” rather
- A pastor faced prison for reading from the pulpit Scriptures critical
- It’s now a “hate crime” to criticize fornicators
- A Catholic priest faces jail for the “hate crime” of
publicly criticizing abortionists.
In Canada, Australia, and most of
Europe, it’s now a “hate crime” to publicly criticize protected
groups. Truth is not allowed as
evidence in hate crimes trials.
All that matters are the delicate feelings of
members of federally protected groups. A
homosexual can claim emotional damage from
hearing Scripture that describes his lifestyle as
an abomination. He can press charges against
the pastor or broadcaster who merely reads the
Bible in public. Liberals and non-Christians are
also increasingly unprotected from a Muslim
who objects to their criticism of Islam. The
“hater” can be fined thousands of dollars and
Think this can’t happen in America? Think
The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith,
architect of “anti-hate” laws worldwide, has
reintroduced its federal hate bill, HR 254. ADL
says the purpose of the “David Ray Hate
Crimes Prevention Act” is to end violent
physical hate crimes.
That’s just what ADL told lawmakers in
Canada, Britain, Sweden, etc. Soon after ADL’s
hate bill was passed, it broadened through legal
precedents to outlaw “verbal violence” against
Laws passed to end violent hate crimes soon
criminalized free speech.
The problem is hate laws’ twisted definition of
hate. ADL, which presently administers the US
government’s hate crimes enforcement program, says “hate” equals bias against federally
protected groups, particularly homosexuals.
What document is most biased against
homosexuality? The Holy Bible. Bible-believing
Christians thus become “haters,” potential hate
criminals - the ultimate target of ADL’s
distorted definitions of hate and hate crimes.
Epidemic of Hate?
Supporters of “anti-hate” legislation claim
there’s an epidemic of hate in America.
Yet the FBI’s 2005 Uniform Crime Report shows alleged hate crimes comprise a tiny 1/15
of 1% of all crime in America. This is hardly a
crisis requiring a vast federal thought crimes
bureaucracy with unlimited power to invade
state law enforcement.
Also, at least 95% of so-called hate crimes
reported to the FBI have never been tried in
court. Most are nothing but police opinions
about verbal “intimidation,” name calling, and
petty assault and vandalism.
With Americans behind them, Republicans in
Congress repeatedly defeated the federal hate
bill in the past 8 years. Yet Democrats, who
always vote for the hate bill, now control
Congress. Their strong numbers mean the bill
will pass... unless there’s an upheaval of protest.
If enough concerned Americans call Congress,
ADL may lose nerve and wait another year.
USA doesn’t yet have a federal hate law. Protest from freedom-loving
patriots killed this bill three times in the last two years. But
the threat looms again.
It’s not too late. With
