JESUS CHRIST" "HATE CRIMINAL?"
By Rev. Ted Pike
25 Aug 09
If Jesus walked the earth today in Canada and most European countries,
He would be an oft-convicted "hate criminal." In some hate
laws countries it is now an indictable offense to publicly criticize
Jesus' primary target: sinners in need of God's love and salvation!
Five years ago, a northern Canadian Christian called to tell me he
had been passing out gospel tracts in his town when a police officer
informed him that provincial law now banned such "hate speech." If
he kept witnessing, he would be arrested.
In Holland, Dutch relatives plead with us to keep hate laws from coming
to America. There, anyone who publicly criticizes "sinners" (such
as fornicators, adulterers, or homosexuals) faces arrest.
In Iceland, virtually any critical public speech is a hate crime.
In England, even wearing a cross is a hate crime. The government sees
it as judgmental against non-Christians.
Because Jesus boldly, publicly reproved all sinners regardless of
consequences to Himself, He would now suffer multiple arrests, imprisonments,
and huge legal costs if He lived in most hate law countries.
There is one hate crime for which He would suffer the most: being
an "anti-Semite." The Jewish Anti-Defamation League created
hate laws. Anti-Christian Jewish-dominated attack-groups such as ADL,
Southern Poverty Law Center, People for the American Way and the American
Civil Liberties Union are the spiritual and physical descendants of
those Jesus excoriated: the Pharisees. ADL has made sure that in all
of its hate law bureaucracies worldwide, any criticism of matters Jewish
is deemed anti-Semitic and punished severely.
History of Jewish "Speech Criminals"
In ancient Israel, under leadership of false priests, prophets, and
evil kings, it was as much a speech crime to criticize the Jewish people
as it is in Canada today. One of Jesus' first acts of public "anti-Semitism" occurred
in his home synagogue of Nazareth. Standing before the congregation,
He criticized the unworthiness of most Jews during the history of Israel.
His listeners were so enraged they tried to throw him over a cliff!
(Luke 6:16-30) Three years later their leaders finally succeeded in
having him crucified. If these Jews lived in Canada today, they would
surely have filed a hate crimes charge against Jesus for holding the
Jewish people up to "hatred and contempt." The Pharisees
would have filed charges for each of His dozens of accusations against
them. Each charge of Jewish hurt feelings would bring a $5,000 fine.
Of course, Jesus would repeat the offense and face many contempt of
court charges and years of imprisonment as well as hundreds of thousands
of dollars of fines and legal costs.
All the greatest Hebrew prophets would join Him in prison. Ahab accused
Elijah of the "anti-Semitic" crime of troubling Israel. Ahab
declared him to be Israel's most wanted hate criminal for criticizing
its sin and bringing three years of drought. Jeremiah was repeatedly
accused by both laity and leaders of speaking against the Jewish people
and their holy city. For this they threw him in a well to die. In almost
every age, going back to Israel's exodus from Egypt, evil Jewish leaders
forbade criticism of God's chosen people. During the Exodus the rebels
of Korah said, "all the congregation is holy… and the Lord
is among them." (Deuteronomy 16:3) They denounced Moses as an
enemy of the people for criticizing and judging evil Hebrews.
Since then history has recorded the rise of Pharisaism and enshrinement
of their Talmud and Zohar as the highest religious guide to Jews of
all time. Today Talmudic Jews still consider it very wrong, even blasphemous,
for any Gentile to criticize the Chosen Race. In fact, ADL's Office
of Global Anti-Semitism in the US State Department says any "strong" criticism
of Israel, including its leaders or military, is anti-semitic.
Could America become an environment as hostile as ancient Israel,
imprisoning or even eventually killing those who criticize the Jews?
We are moving rapidly in that direction. ADL's federal hate crimes
bill, recently passed by the US House and Senate, is designed to transform
America into a speech crimes tyranny just like ancient Israel under
its most oppressive leadership.
Yet because Jewish-dominated media gives the hate bill issue virtually
no attention, wanting the hate bill passed without discussion, even
most Conservatives consider it minor legislation. (See, "Jews
Confirm Big Media is Jewish") Result: most of the tens of thousands
of tea-party tax and town hall protesters have not included the hate
bill in their criticisms of the Democrats this spring and summer.
In reality, the hate bill is by far the most dangerous legislation
ever passed by the House and Senate. It is designed to lead directly
to the end of free speech and subsequent loss of all other freedoms
in America. In the remaining weeks before it goes to the President
for signing, Americans must speak out in their protest-gatherings.
We must bombard Obama with demands he not sign it - on penalty of massive
damage to the Democrats in next year's midterm elections.
Last Minute Opportunity
We are very, very late in effectively protesting the hate bill. Yet
a window of opportunity is opening. Obama threatens to veto the National
Defense Appropriations Bill with hate bill attached, if it contains
too much military "pork." Congressional leaders seem determined
to defy the President and include excessive arms spending. There now
exists a real possibility that the defense/hate bill could be vetoed
- especially if wide-spread hate bill protest increases. Democrats
could be made to fear that they and the President might become even
less popular, especially at mid-terms next year, if the President signs
a hate bill most Americans hate.
We must seize this opportunity and
1. Protest the hate bill loudly at town hall
meetings (Family Research

2. Fax the President at 1-202-456-2461 with this statement, "We
will never forgive or forget if you sign the freedom-stealing, pedophile-protecting
hate bill." (The toll free number to the President's comment
line, 202-456-1111, is almost constantly busy as a result of health-care
Tragically, Christian/Conservatives, through two decades of general
inattention to the hate law threat and relatively low opposition through
winter and spring, are largely responsible for allowing the hate bill
to pass both houses of Congress. Predictably, no major evangelical "watchdog" group
has joined with me this summer in rousing last minute hate bill protests
at town hall meetings, or bombarding the White House with faxes demanding
the President not sign the bill.
The hate bill cobra, with a Star of David pattern on its throat, is
still confined. Yet if finally released by the master snake charmer,
Obama, it will slither forth to unerringly bite and torment one group
above all others…
The followers of Jesus Christ.
