FLYER DEFENDING FREE SPEECH FOR GRASSROOTS LOBBYISTS
By Rev. Ted Pike
11 Jan 07
The lobby reform bill, now under debate in Congress, poses, in its
present form, an ominous threat to free speech. (See, Lobby
Reform Bill Cripples Free Speech). I have produced a flyer which protests
harassment of grassroots lobbying groups by this oppressive legislation.
Like my hate bill flyer, posted at www.truthtellers.org, this missile
of truth is now ready to be copied, addressed, and sent to members
of both the House and Senate, plus about 8 to 10 of each member's
You may wonder: "What's the use since Congress is so close
to passing the lobby reform bill?"
Yes, that may happen this week in the Senate. Yet it is still possible
to saturate the House with these brochures and powerfully influence
many to question legislation that deliberately oppresses Christian/conservative
grassroots lobbying groups.
Busy members of the Senate may pass S.1, The Legislative Transparency
and Accountability Act of 2007. But if we alert their aides to the
threat of Section 220 (and its upcoming House counterpart), they
can influence their bosses to change their minds and encourage a
vote against Sec. 220 in conference with the House.
Our campaign to hold back introduction of the federal hate bill
by saturating Congress with my brochure "Anti-Hate Laws Will
Make You a Criminal" is already exerting tremendous influence.
8000 of these brochures have been printed by patriots at www.truthtellers.org
in the past 9 days. These are only seeds, multiplied exponentially
by mass reproduction and distribution. Christian evangelicals are
also making use of this flyer. A highly influential Christian/conservative
columnist told me he has sent it to 2000 top evangelical leaders
and activists with encouraging responses. One of the very largest
Christian/conservative organizations recently called, expressing
But, while it is not as dangerous as the hate bill, the lobby reform
bill also needs our attention. It abridges our freedom of speech
and petition by requiring us to seek permission from the government
in order to publicly speak out.
So let's keep the calls and flyers going into Congress this week
against the hate bill but also against Sec. 220 of the lobby reform
bill. The new Democrat-controlled Congress will keep us in battle
for months and even years to come. But if we remain ever vigilant
and never, never give up, we have one enormous advantage: God is
on our side and will deliver.
