'HATE CRIMINALS' - WITH NO LAW BROKEN!
By Rev. Ted Pike
8 Jul 08
In the US, our First Amendment guarantees free speech. Because
of this and determined opposition, the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, architect of U.S. hate laws, has been frustrated in
attempts to pass a federal hate and speech crime law. Yet,
ADL has not given up. Through bias and hate crime laws
on the state and local levels, this enormously powerful and persuasive
Jewish activist group still aggressively erodes freedom of speech
for Americans, especially Christians and conservatives.
ADL has persuaded lawmakers to pass bias and hate crimes legislation
by saying these laws would not affect freedom of speech. This
worked in Canada . In 1971, the northern branches of ADL, the Canadian
Jewish Congress and B'nai B'rith Canada, convinced Parliament to
enact their federal "anti-hate" law (The
Canadian Human Rights Act). They assured MP's that there were adequate restraints
in the law to preserve freedom of speech. Yet the supposed "checks
and balances" proved a sham.
In Canada today, there is no protection for anyone accused of expressing
public, verbal "hatred or contempt" for members of a federally
protected group (especially homosexuals, Jews, or Muslims). A homosexual "victim" needs
only to persuade a single hearings officer that his feelings were
hurt; truth is not admitted as evidence, and his critic will be found
guilty as a hate criminal. First offenses average a $5000 fine. No
one so accused in Canadian hate crimes tribunals has ever been acquitted.
Phase One: Passing Hate Laws
In order to persuade wary US legislators to pass hate laws, ADL
assures them that hateful or contemptuous speech is not itself a
hate crime. To be a hate crime, ADL says "bias" must motivate
a violation of established law, i.e. traditional English law. Only
then can police and courts pursue a hate crime charge. ADL
says this definition of a hate crime is so protective of free speech
that no American will ever be prosecuted for a speech crime under
ADL hate laws.
As in Canada, 45 U.S. state legislatures were satisfied that ADL
only wanted to punish actual crime, not speech. They trustingly enacted
ADL hate laws—just like parliaments in Canada, most European
countries, Australia and New Zealand.
Having passed the Canadian hate law in 1971, ADL/B'nai B'rith were
confident they could enact its American equivalent, the federal Hate
Crimes Prevention Act of 1998. As in Canada, they wanted to suddenly
entrap Americans in a hate crimes vise, initiating hate crimes indictments
throughout America from the federal level. This lockdown on free
speech, buttressed by Jewish-dominated big media, would be virtually
impossible to repeal. (See, Jews
Confirm Big Media Is Jewish)
Yet ADL did not expect dogged, long-term educational and legislative
opposition, largely from the National Prayer Network (www.truthtellers.org).
Now, ten years later and after five defeats in Congress, a frustrated
ADL is far behind schedule, deprived of an all-empowering federal
hate law. (See, Unsung
Heroes of Hate Bill Defeat)
Phase Two: Indicting Speech
Defeated in attempts to pass a federal hate law, ADL is now moving
forward aggressively with hate and bias crimes prosecutions on state,
county, and municipal levels. ADL has permeated these strata of our
society with extensive "anti-bias" education programs for
at least 40 years.
ADL still attempts to persuade members of Congress that a federal
hate law will never threaten free speech. But on the local
level, ADL is already doing the opposite: fast-forwarding prosecution
of Christians for speech crimes alone. In the US, we now see
ADL-educated state, county, and city officials making Canadian-style
laws. They indict individuals who have not committed criminal acts – not
according to traditional law. Consider:
- In 2004, eleven Christians were arrested in Philadelphia for
the "hate crime" of singing "Blessed Be the Name
of the Lord" and holding up signs with Scripture verses
condemning homosexuality, even though they violated no law. (See, Philadelphia
Pursues "Hate Crimes" Charges Against Christians)
- California 's recently passed anti-discrimination law, S.B.777,
bans verbal expression of bias against homosexuality in public
education. It makes this an offense worthy of dismissal of a
teacher, expulsion of a student, or a lawsuit. Expressing moral
opposition to homosexuality is now a "hate crime" in
California, even though it violates no traditional law. (See, How
the Bible Became 'Hate Speech' in California)
- In New Mexico, a photographer and his wife were found guilty
of a "hate crime" for refusing to photograph same-sex
couples; they were fined $6600. Their "crime of bias" violated
no law. (See, New
Mexico accused of violating 'free exercise' of religion)
- The Colorado legislature just approved S.B.200. This law says
no business can criticize or discriminate against anyone because
of their "perceived" sexual orientation. Penalty for
violation: one year in prison. Again, a hate crime without violation
of established law. (See, Legislator:
Law allows banishment of Bible)
These are only a few examples of the many bias and hate crimes
charges being leveled in the US without violation of traditional
Some cases derive authority from recently passed, phony bias crime
laws. Many U.S. states have passed ADL's "workplace discrimination" laws.
They indict any employer or property owner who discriminates against
homosexuals in sales, rentals, or hiring and firing. Again, such
individuals become criminals not for violating a just law established
over the past 5000 years, but for violating a politically biased
law probably passed in the last two years.
ADL/B'nai B'rith want to make Christians and freedom-loving Americans
into hate criminals simply for holding to Constitutional rights and
Biblical values they can’t compromise. For example, the ADL's "Office
of Global Anti-Semitism" in the U.S. State Department now transforms
tens of millions of Christians who inflexibly believe the New Testament
into "classic anti-Semites." (See, Bible
is Hate, says U.S. Government) The moral principles of conservative
Christians are mis-defined as evil and “hateful;” the
ultimate goal is to remove Christian influence from society.
Paralysis of the Church
Incredibly, the church and its leaders remain determined to not
criticize those who foment such persecution - the evil leaders and
activists of "God's chosen people." Christians fear
being labeled "anti-Semitic." They remain immobile, indecisive,
even as Biblically prophesied persecution begins.
This cannot be God's will.
America, unique in the world's history, was founded by Christian
believers as a bastion of religious and political freedom. If
the American church had guarded this heritage by speaking out, in
specific terms, against anti-Christian Jewish activist groups, such
as ADL, People for the American Way, Southern Poverty Law Center,
ACLU, etc., we would not be losing our freedom of speech today. (See, ACLU
Top Heavy with Jews) Instead, the church languishes in the bondage
of a self-imposed restriction not to criticize and identify the very
Jewish media and "civil liberties" activists who seek to
Since the church has willingly allowed one hand to be tied behind
her back, it is little wonder that, although she seeks to escape
the "hate crimes" noose being tightened around her, she
cannot. As long as evangelicals do not love the whole truth
enough to speak it, and instead protect those who seek its ruin,
how can they escape?
As a result, no longer sharing characteristics of the noble and
mighty eagle, the church now owns the traits and possible fate of
a much less empowered, vulnerable bird:
The sitting duck.
