THERE'S STILL TIME TO KILL THE HATE BILL!
By Rev. Ted Pike
15 July 09
Sen. Patrick Leahy's hate crimes amendment was scheduled to be received
by the Senate on Wednesday, July 15, and voted on. Yet, the debate
over funding additional F-22 fighter planes on the defense appropriations
bill was not resolved today and will continue Wednesday. This delay
may give lovers of freedom another day to protest the hate bill, S.
Because of massive failure of Christian/conservative action groups to rally calling
at this pivotal moment, homosexual calling in favor of the hate bill dominated
in Senate offices today. I have written about how Dr. Dobson and Family Research
Council devastated evangelical will to fight the hate bill in their radio broadcast
last week. They said it is now in vain to oppose the hate bill; prayer is our
only recourse. (Listen to Focus on the Family's James Dobson betray

Yet, for at least several weeks, most of the largest new right evangelical groups
have failed to take advantage of powerful opportunities the liberals have delivered
to us to gain advantage over the hate bill. None followed up on Sen. Leahy's
outrageous stacking of pro-hate bill witnesses, including Attorney Gen. Eric
Holder, against only two opponents of the hate bill in the very brief Senate
Judiciary "kangaroo" hearing. Except for two articles by WorldNetDaily
and a broadcast by Rush Limbaugh, none have capitalized on Holder's blunder of
admission in Judiciary that the hate bill does not equally protect all Americans.
He also said there is no evidence that states are failing to enforce state laws
against hate crimes. Thirdly, he admitted that ministers, policemen, and soldiers
will not be covered under the hate bill.
New right "watchdog" groups who remain oblivious to imminent passage
of the hate bill include WorldNetDaily, Concerned Women for America, Traditional
Values Coalition, Focus on the Family and Family Research Council. None have
anything on their websites concerning the present, high drama crisis in the Senate.
Most are not enthusiastically encouraging phoning and action. Only Janet Porter's
Faith2Action is abreast of events, with her website boldly encouraging calling
to forestall a Wednesday passage of the hate bill.
The truth is, the relatively high level of protest calling to the Senate over
the past two weeks, from moderate to extremely heavy, has been almost entirely
generated by the National Prayer Network.
Now, at last, as an extension of God's grace, we may have another day in which
the people of America, not homosexuals, will have opportunity to dominate calling
into the Senate.
Don't squander this opportunity as most evangelical groups are doing, saying
in effect, "We don't think we can make any difference." Actually, they
could make an enormous difference at this very last moment to remind
all members of Congress that the people are very, very angry. The people deeply
resent that a pedophile-protecting hate bill -- one that denies equal justice
to all and doesn't even provide protection for soldiers -- is being underhandedly
attached to a military bill which is designed to provide safety for
Sens. Leahy and Burris held forth in the Senate this week encouraging hate bill
passage. Since the Democrats seem determined to pursue the amendment route, it
is perhaps too late to try to dissuade them. Therefore, you can make your calls
Wednesday very brief and simple, stating the essential message: "Please
don't vote for the pedophile-protecting hate bill. If you do, I and my friends
will never forgive or forget!"Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or

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.
