By Rev. Ted Pike

It was to be a triumphal moment at the Washington DC press conference Monday afternoon, announcing imminent Senate passage of Sen. Kennedy’s hate bill amendment. The chief pillars of the hate bill were to be there: Michael Lieberman of the Anti-Defamation League (the ADL is chief architect of the federal hate bill and hate crime laws worldwide); fellow Jewish activist Joe Solomonese, head of the Human Rights Campaign, representing the homosexual/pederast lobbies; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, embodying attempts by the Democrat majority and Obama to make America into a hate crime bureaucracy like Canada’s – ending free speech.

Yet this grand gesture of hate bill ascendance fizzled! Sen. Reid announced that Democrat powerbrokers abandoned the Travel Promotion Act as a vehicle to pass Kennedy’s amendment. The travel bill may have been too unrelated to the hate crimes issue and another more germane bill is already selected. S. 909 remains like a disappointed passenger waiting for another train to take it where it has been trying to go since 1997.

But that train could come at any moment and be moving fast! It didn’t come Wednesday as the Senate debated healthcare reform. But Kennedy and the Democrats must be increasingly anxious to stay on the media-hyped wave of anxiety over hate crime terrorism generated by the Holocaust museum shooting. If that wave subsides over the weekend or the public is distracted by other issues, Democrats may lose the best moment for hate bill passage since Matt Shepard’s murder.

On Tuesday morning, I called Janet Porter of Faith2Action and warned her of Democrat strategy. I sent her Monday's Washington Blade article predicting passage by Tuesday or Wednesday. On her nationally syndicated radio broadcast program, she powerfully warned evangelical Christians listening to her 80 affiliate stations. Afterwards, she personally alerted the largest conservative watchdog groups, some of whom, like the American Family Association promised massive protest.

Instead of going forward to almost certain victory, the Democrats, by their indecision have empowered renewed opportunity for heavy opposition.  

I believe Kennedy and the Democrats will make every effort this week to repair Monday’s false start and move their amendment forward. The hate bill rattlesnake may have been bruised a little on Monday, but is very alive and poised to strike out against freedom.

Don’t stop calling. We want the hate bill kept in the Senate Judiciary where it properly belongs until fair and exhaustive hearings have been held. Call every day to all 100 Senators (names available HERE at www.truthtellers.org.) Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202- 225-3121.

Tell Senators, “I protest Senator Kennedy’s high-handed attempt to pass the hate crimes bill by amendment, without hearings in the Judiciary. If the Senator votes for the pedophile-protecting bill, I and my friends will never forgive or forget!”  Tell Senate staffers to watch the dynamic nine-minute video "Stop the Pedophile-Protecting Hate Bill!" on the homepage of www.truthtellers.org.

On Monday, the Democrats made a serious mistake in dissipating their element of surprise and hate bill momentum, but this is typical of the bungling that has cost them hate bill passage five times over the last 12 years. In response to your prayer and activism, God has repeatedly rescued us by inspiring last-minute confusion in the hate bill ranks.

This is a time to exert equal faith and action. God is even more opposed to hate bill passage than we. If we unite our hearts with His through repentance and righteous indignation, He will confirm His decree:

"With God nothing shall be called impossible." (Luke 1:37)


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.
