FEDERAL HATE CRIMES BILL RE-INTRODUCED IN CONGRESS
By Rev. Ted Pike
3 Feb 05
Both Houses of Congress last year made it clear that they overwhelmingly
approve this bill: the Senate voted 65 to 33 in its favor on June
15th; the House symbolically favored it 213 to 186 on September 28th.
This means very rapid passage unless lovers of free speech protest
This massive Orwellian bill is the most dangerous legislation since
the Federal Reserve Act of 1913; probably even more dangerous, since
it will lead directly to establishment of a vast federal anti-hate
bureaucracy like Canada's ending free speech.
This bill will empower the federal government to invade states'
rights in "hate crimes" law enforcement, breaking down traditional
states' rights protection from federal intervention.
It will also exponentially empower the federal "thought police" to
enforce the working ADL/federal definition of "hate" as "bias against
homosexuality." This twisted definition makes the Bible, with its
bias against homosexuality, into "hate speech;" those who adhere
to the biblical standard into "hate criminals."
The world has been aghast at how the Pennsylvania ADL hate laws
could arrest and imprison eleven Christians for simply preaching
the gospel at a "gay-pride" event, possibly sentencing them to 47
years in prison and $90,000.00 fine each.
Such power to arrest and imprison Christian and conservative "haters," including
pro-lifers, writers and conservative talk-show hosts, will dramatically
increase if the federal government, assisted by the ADL, locks up
the whole nation under a massive "anti-hate" thought police-state.
It is vital now that you call members of Congress and protest.

For preaching the gospel, eleven Christians were arrested under
Pennsylvania's hate crime laws.
This proves that late laws can be abused to persecute Christians
and end free speech.
Do not approve the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005, HR 259.
