Bias “Hate Crimes”?
police manual tells us it is "hateful" to "bias" our
children against homosexuality
Rev. Ted Pike
order to fulfill its dream of ending free speech in America, the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith (ADL) must twist definitions of the
most fundamental words and terms upon which freedom rests.
example, the ADL, in their "Training Guide for Hate Crime Data
Collection," the standard FBI reference manual for every police
department in America, is loaded with implications that opposition to
homosexuality is "hate" and Bible-believing Christianity is a
religion of hate. It says that those who hold "pre-formed
opinions" against homosexuality are "biased" and implies
bias is synonymous with "hate." "A bias crime," it
says, "is the same as a hate crime."
the other hand, the FBI/ADL regard homosexuals as innocent victims of such
unreasoning "hate." "...There is nothing such a person can
do; indeed, nothing he/she ought to do to change his/her...sexual
the past eleven years, since the "Hate Crimes Statistics Act of
1990" authorized such ADL guidelines, law enforcement has been subtly
prejudiced against Christianity. Because Christians are members of an
organization in which a "historically established animosity exists
between the victims and offenders groups," the ADL/FBI manual implies
that Christians are high-profile suspects of bias and possible "bias
incidents" against homosexuals.
bias and hate are not the same. Pre-formed biases are necessary to life -
warning us against danger and evil. A person without normal biases is like
a rabbit without fear of the fox. For the rabbit, aversion to danger is
Nature's instinctive "pre-formed bias" that the fox is dangerous
and to be avoided. Biases, as long as they are not hurtful and vindictive,
can, thus, save the lives of rabbits and humans.
with its disgusting and unnatural practices, creates a revulsion (bias) in
normal people. It is thus natural, not "bigoted" to convey such
"bias" to our children. Such warning is not "hate,"
but an expression of our love and concern toward our cherished youth.
fact, "hate" toward sexual perversion, which would ruin their
young lives, is not a vice, as the FBI/ADL contend, but a positive virtue.
Scripture says, "Ye that love the Lord hate evil" (Ps. 97:10). A
society that, because of false requirements of "tolerance," is
not permitted to hate evil, is a society that does not love those within
its care. A culture that cannot hate evil is one destined to be overcome
is a "good" hate of evil that preserves life, and a
"bad" hate that destroys life. Bad hate despises another human
being, made in the image of God, and does not care whether he lives or
dies. The Bible-believing Christian never embodies such malice, nor
expresses it to any one, including homosexuals.
is the ADL so determined to change normal bias into "hate?" It
is simple. The ADL could never persuade Congress to outlaw Christianity
outright. But they can persuade Congress to outlaw hate, and in doing so,
outlaw Christianity as a form of hate. The ADL has thus carefully spread a
finely woven net under Christianity which, when the "anti-hate"
trap is sprung, will catch up Christianity in the toils of persecution -
with little hope of escape.
can we do? Just as terrorists' anthrax is destroyed under radiation, so
the faxes, emails, telegrams or phone calls of outraged patriots
bombarding elected representatives (especially in protest against the
ADL's hate law S625) can destroy the ADL's "verbal sabotage"
