CHRISTIAN SILENCE BEFORE HATE BILL THREAT
By Rev. Ted Pike
23 Feb 09
Although two supremely threatening federal hate crimes bills have
been moving forward in the House Judiciary Committee over the past
six weeks, almost all large Christian/conservative "watch dog" groups
In the past week, I have called virtually all of them requesting they watch my
latest video, How to Kill the Hate Bills. I called 64 of the largest
conservative organizations in America, including Focus on the Family's 37 state
affiliates; I explained the imminent threat to freedom posed by these bills.
I also called the largest 30 evangelical and Catholic pro-life organizations,
emphasizing that hate laws have them in their crosshairs. Since January 1, I
also warned against the hate bills on 41 talk radio interviews and produced two
10-minute video documentaries and several articles posted at www.truthtellers.org.
In spite of this, few organizations provide timely alerts concerning the grave,
impending threat of HR 256 and HR 262!
On Sunday, February 22, this was the record of silence from the websites of conservative "watchdog" groups:
• American Center for Law and Justice?
• Christian Coalition? Silence.
• Family Research Council? Silence.
• Focus on the Family? Silence.
• Traditional Values Coalition? Silence.
• Coral Ridge Ministries? Silence.
• Alliance Defense Fund? Silence.
• Liberty Counsel? Silence.
• The Rutherford Institute? Silence.
• Concerned Women for America? Silence.
After diligent search, we discovered the American Family Association
disapproves of HR 256 but makes no mention of HR 262. Only Pastor
Rod Parsley's Center for Moral Clarity powerfully alerts its readers
to the danger of both HR 256 and HR 262.
Among smaller watchdog groups, The Christian Anti-Defamation League and Americans
for Truth spiritedly alert their constituents to the threats of both bills.
Janet Porter, of Faith to Action, wrote an excellent article mentioning the
threat of the hate bills, which was recently posted by World Net Daily. Yet
Restore America has nothing.
Why are Christian/conservative leaders—who have most to lose
if these anti-Christian, freedom-stealing laws are passed—so
I'm afraid most know that, beneath a surface as thin as an onion skin, hate
laws are primarily the work, not of liberals or homosexuals, but of the Jewish
Anti-Defamation League (Watch, Hate
Laws: Making Criminals of Christians). They are also afraid
to offend the American Jewish community, which overwhelmingly supports hate
laws. (See, Why
Most Jews Support the Hate Bill)
Even the most tentative research into who is behind hate laws hits the ADL
bull's eye. Are you skeptical that this is true? Google "hate laws." You'll
find ADL the number one organization promoting hate laws. (You'll also find
our National Prayer Network and its Truthtellers website to be the number one
organization opposing ADL's monstrous agenda.)
Terrified of being labeled "anti-Semitic" for opposing Jewish hate
laws, most conservative organizations shy away from the hate laws issue. Few,
if any, extensively educate against hate legislation. As a result, it is extremely
difficult to find Christian/conservative writers who can quickly produce hard-hitting
articles during legislative crises, such as now.
Tragically, we again see Christian leaders quake before Jewish powers of intimidation.
They would rather risk our Christian civilization and its precious freedoms
than to displease anti-Christ Jews!
If you called many of these organizations, asking why they have not taken significant
action, you would probably receive the same answer I did: "We are monitoring
these bills closely." Your time would be much better spent calling the
House Judiciary members, those crucial legislators who right now are deciding
whether the hate bills will go forward in Congress.
Some may ask, "Why do I need to call? Aren't thousands of others fulfilling
this task?" Last week one of my supporters called four Republican members
of the Judiciary and asked how many calls they received that day. Thousands?
Hundreds? Hardly! Not one had received more than four calls (including hers)
that day! Such infinitesimal protest is all the influence a once-mighty religious
right seems willing to muster at this time.
Weary of the Fight?
Two years ago, thousands called the pivotal Judiciary members and
jumpstarted tremendous opposition to the hate bill. God and the American
people defeated it and five other pieces of Orwellian legislation!
Today in America, there has never been more awareness of the dangers
of hate laws and their abuses in other countries. A Harvard student
education group now says the whole subject of hate laws has become
very controversial on Capitol Hill. ( View
Harvard Model Congress article)
Yet now we see a drastic slump in Christian activism and concern.
So what’s your reason for not calling the members of the House Judiciary?
Perhaps your answer is as evasive as almost everyone else's.
One thing, however, we can know with ominous certainty. All of us will
be shivering in the gulags of tomorrow unless we speak out right now. Each
will have to live with the haunting, condemning question: Why didn’t
I just pick up a phone and dial a toll free number to save freedom while I
If you want to spare yourself that dire fate and tormented conscience that
will go with it, call your members of the House and Senate. Then come to www.truthtellers.org for
the 40 members of the House Judiciary Committee. Call them toll free at 1-877-851-6437 or
toll 1-202-225-3121. Tell them: "Please
don't vote for the hate crime bills, HR 256 and HR 262. Hate laws have
taken away free speech in Canada and many countries."
It is not too late… yet.
