Ominous federal law will soon end free speech in America!

By Rev. Ted Pike
Jan 07

In 2004, eleven Christians were arrested and jailed in Philadelphia for the “hate crime” of peaceful evangelism at a gay pride parade. For the full story, visit www.truthtellers.org

Hate Laws End Free Speech.

In Canada,

  • A Christian was fined $6,000 for printing 3 Bible verses against homosexuality. A newspaper was fined $6,000 for accepting his ad.
  • A Christian printer was fined $5,000 for refusing to print stationery for homosexual activists. He was bankrupted after spending $175,000 contesting the charge.
  • A Christian was fined $35,000 for distributing “hate literature”--tracts critical of homosexuality.
  • Church school administrators were forced to hire a known homosexual, under threat of prison.
  • A pastor was told it’s a “hate crime” to hand out gospel tracts, punishable by prison.

In Australia,

  • Two Christians were indicted for criticizing Islam, another for criticizing Zionism.

In Britain,

  • Two political activists were indicted, facing 7 years in prison, for describing Islam as a “wicked faith.” A filmmaker was threatened with arrest for using the term “homosexual” rather than “gay.”

In Sweden,

  • A pastor faced prison for reading from the pulpit Scriptures critical of homosexuality.

In Holland,

  • It’s now a “hate crime” to criticize fornicators and adulterers.

In Germany,

  • A Catholic priest faces jail for the “hate crime” of publicly criticizing abortionists.


In Canada, Australia, and most of Europe, it’s now a “hate crime” to publicly criticize protected groups. Truth is not allowed as evidence in hate crimes trials. All that matters are the delicate feelings of members of federally protected groups. A homosexual can claim emotional damage from hearing Scripture that describes his lifestyle as an abomination. He can press charges against the pastor or broadcaster who merely reads the Bible in public. Liberals and non-Christians are also increasingly unprotected from a Muslim who objects to their criticism of Islam. The “hater” can be fined thousands of dollars and even imprisoned!

Think this can’t happen in America? Think again.
The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, architect of “anti-hate” laws worldwide, has reintroduced its federal hate bill, HR 254. ADL says the purpose of the “David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act” is to end violent physical hate crimes.

That’s just what ADL told lawmakers in Canada, Britain, Sweden, etc. Soon after ADL’s hate bill was passed, it broadened through legal precedents to outlaw “verbal violence” against protected groups.

Laws passed to end violent hate crimes soon criminalized free speech.

The problem is hate laws’ twisted definition of hate. ADL, which presently administers the US government’s hate crimes enforcement program, says “hate” equals bias against federally protected groups, particularly homosexuals. What document is most biased against homosexuality? The Holy Bible. Bible-believing Christians thus become “haters,” potential hate criminals - the ultimate target of ADL’s distorted definitions of hate and hate crimes.

Epidemic of Hate?
Supporters of “anti-hate” legislation claim there’s an epidemic of hate in America.

Yet the FBI’s 2005 Uniform Crime Report shows alleged hate crimes comprise a tiny 1/15 of 1% of all crime in America. This is hardly a crisis requiring a vast federal thought crimes bureaucracy with unlimited power to invade state law enforcement.

Also, at least 95% of so-called hate crimes reported to the FBI have never been tried in court. Most are nothing but police opinions about verbal “intimidation,” name calling, and petty assault and vandalism.

With Americans behind them, Republicans in Congress repeatedly defeated the federal hate bill in the past 8 years. Yet Democrats, who always vote for the hate bill, now control Congress. Their strong numbers mean the bill will pass... unless there’s an upheaval of protest. If enough concerned Americans call Congress, ADL may lose nerve and wait another year.

The USA doesn’t yet have a federal hate law. Protest from freedom-loving patriots killed this bill three times in the last two years. But the threat looms again.

It’s not too late. With God’s help We Can Save Freedom.
