FOUL! HATE BILL HEARING RIGGED!
By Rev. Ted Pike
23 June 09
Senate Judiciary Democrats have stacked Thursday's hate bill hearing
with pro-hate bill witnesses, apparently by a ratio as high as 5 to
At the same time, Christian/conservative groups, attempting to submit their own
lists of witnesses against S. 909, are being turned away!
The official hearing notice/witness list at judiciary.senate.gov gives
special importance to the testimony of Atty. Gen. Eric Holder in favor of the
hate bill. He is followed by these other witnesses:
- Janet Langhart Cohen, wife of former Clinton Sec.
of Defense William Cohen, undoubtedly pro-hate bill.
- Dr. Mark Achtemeier,
theology professor from Dubuque Theological Seminary. He
has been the center of controversy for allegedly homosexual-friendly
statements and is very probably pro-hate bill.
- Gail Heriot, commissioner,
U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. (Correction: We thought Heriot
would favor the hate bill but actually opposed it in Thursday's hearing!)
W. Walsh, The Heritage Foundation, opposing the hate bill.
Lieberman, counsel for the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith,
originator of the hate bill.
Judiciary Bias against Christian/Conservatives
Janet Porter of Faith2Action told me conservative groups, such as
Traditional Values Coalition, have submitted names of scholarly opponents
of the hate bill as potential witnesses. These include internationally
recognized hate law authority Robert L. Knight. But, she said,
they are all being turned away.
Thus, we face a hate bill hearing in which are featured not only the Attorney
General in support of the bill but liberals by a probable ratio of 5 to 1!
Lovers of freedom must loudly protest starting early Wednesday morning! Call
all members of the Senate toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121 (names
listed HERE on the action page at www.truthtellers.org). Give this
message: "We demand a balance between conservative and liberal
witnesses in the Judiciary hate bill hearing on Thursday. This hearing
is rigged in favor of liberals by a probable ratio of 5 to 1!"
Judiciary liberals are determined not to let authorities like Robert L. Knight "contaminate" their
proceedings with descriptions of how hate laws have taken away free speech
in Canada and western countries. It is up to YOU on
Wednesday to let all members of the Senate know we will not allow a liberal "kangaroo
hearing" to move the hate bill forward to passage. Wednesday is
the only effective day to protest this outrage. Thursday will be too
If pro-hate bill Senators are made aware of Judiciary discrimination against
conservatives, some may agree the hate bill is too shaky to withstand normal
legislative scrutiny. Let's avalanche the Senate on Wednesday, encouraging
doubt of the hate bill. Only one or two Senators who fall away from its
support could doom passage.
That would be enough to save freedom.
Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states with
hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass the
federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
