DEMOCRATS FEAR HATE BILL HEARINGS
By Rev. Ted Pike
28 May 09
The next scheduled action by the Senate Judiciary Committee is
June 3 and is about immigration, not the federal hate crimes bill.
At that time the bill -- originally intended to be passed quickly by
the Senate Democrats -- will have been stalled nearly five weeks.
The reasons are now clear. There has been spirited protest from the Christian/conservative
right. Perhaps more significantly, Judiciary Democrats are reluctant to publicly
defend the special rights and protections the hate bill grants not only to pedophilia
but 546 other sexual deviancies. This conflict has powerfully slowed
the momentum of S. 909. Lovers of freedom must explore its potential to
destroy the hate bill completely!
Judiciary Democrats most fear Rep. Steve King’s proposal to name a category
of sexual deviants and exclude them from preferential treatment under the hate
bill. If one category is successfully removed by a Republican amendment, then
so could a second, third, and many more illegal paraphilias. The whole
fabric of the hate bill’s determination to protect all homosexuals would
unravel. The hate bill would be gutted.
The list of illegal paraphilias threatened with removal by Republicans is extensive.
Here are some examples, specifying the fetishes of such deviants:
Necrophilia - corpses
Nepiophilia - infants
Biastophilia - assault and rape
Erotophonophilia - murder
Entomophilia - small animals, including
Zoosadism - causing pain to animals
Urophilia- urinating in public
Sadism - causing pain to others
Exhibitionism - exposing oneself sexually
Frotteurism - rubbing against a non-consenting
Men, rather than women, are primarily attracted to such deviancies. Homosexual
men are most likely to branch into these perversions and hundreds more in their
desire for increasingly perverse stimulation. Of all paraphilias, pedophilia
is arguably the worst. In a recent radio interview, Jack McLamb (most highly
decorated police officer in Phoenix, Arizona history) described to me the many
times he has carried little boys and girls to the emergency room to be sewn up
after being raped by pedophiles. He says the average pedophile successfully rapes
100 children before he is finally caught.
Rep. Alcee Hastings says the supposed danger posed by any group of sexual deviants
is loudly exaggerated by Republicans, and he mocked Republican attempts to exclude
them. He asserted that sexual deviants should be protected as harmless people
free to express their sexuality as they see fit. If the hate bill is passed,
he said, pedophiles will "no longer have to live in fear because of who
they are." By agreeing that pedophiles should not be specifically excluded,
Senate Judiciary Democrats agree with Hastings’ perverse and outrageous
As I stated in my previous article "Is
the Hate Bill in Trouble?" May 21, 2009, the only way forward for Judiciary
Democrats may be to boldly propose their own broad amendment stipulating that
no illegal paraphilias will be protected. They will be careful not to name any
specific paraphilia. Such an amendment would be a fraud, contradicting the bill's
broad provision of general "sacred cow" status to all homosexuals.
Even worse, S. 909 would give homosexual pedophiles special entitlement to preliminary
police and justice system rights and services if the pedophile screamed "Hate
crime!" after an irate parent defended their son or daughter from rape.
Nevertheless, accompanied by very rapid movement of the hate bill through the
Senate, this subterfuge could be successful. If Democrats do adopt such an amendment,
then no matter how fast the hate bill shoots forward, we must protest even faster. At
that time, we'll have to overwhelm the Senate, telling members not to believe
any amendment denying that the hate bill protects pedophiles. It does! It gives
them preferential rights and services, especially if they claim to be victims
of a hate crime.
Our Top Priority Now
Senate Judiciary Democrats are stalling in hope that protest from
the conservative right will decline. Democrats may be willing
to wait a long time. Four years ago, they waited nine months for controversy
to die down before suddenly passing the hate bill in the House in only
45 minutes! We cannot give them hope by letting up on protest.
Call all members of the Senate and demand hearings on S. 909. Call repeatedly
(every other day), especially the crucial 19 members of the Senate Judiciary
Committee. The names are available here
on the action page at www.truthtellers.org. Tell the Senator: "Please
hold hearings on the pedophile-protecting hate bill S. 909. If the Senator
votes for this bill, my friends and I will never forgive or forget."Also,
encourage staffers to watch NPN's alarming video "Stop the Pedophile-Protecting
Hate Bill" on the home page at www.truthtellers.org.
Possible Senate hate bill hearings will be the most dangerous moment in hate
bill passage thus far. If we continue to protest now, there is still a chance
they will never be held and S. 909 will die in committee.
The term "sexual orientation" (contrived by the Anti-Defamation League)
covers every sexual perversion known to depraved humanity. We must persuade
Democrats that its inclusion as a defining concept in any legislation (including
the upcoming Employment Non-Discrimination Act, ENDA) is going to result in
massive opposition. The term is bankrupt; it cannot be clearly defined
and is constitutionally indefensible. The best course of action for Judiciary
Democrats is to give up trying to make "sexual orientation" viable
and abandon the hate bill which coheres around it.
The federal hate bill is the flagship of the “Obama Armada” of
similar freedom-stealing anti-Christian legislation to come. Evidence that
all is not well with the hate bill should encourage us more than ever to call
repeatedly and finish it off. If the hate bill goes down, we may well (as in
the previous Congress) bring legislative disaster to a host of Orwellian bills.
