INDICTMENT OF THE 'PHILADELPHIA FIVE':
BEGINNING OF PERSECTUTION BY
THE 'NEW SANHEDRIN'
By Rev. Ted Pike
8 Feb 05
To understand such vindictiveness against public preaching of the
gospel, we need to go back 2,000 years to the ancient Sanhedrin of
The Sanhedrin consisted of seventy Pharisees - a ruling elite over
the Jewish people. By their twisted "Traditions of the Elders," they
turned upside down God's law. Naturally, the Sanhedrin hated Christ.
For publicly preaching the good news of salvation, the Sanhedrin,
like the "thought police" of Philadelphia, convinced the Roman government
to exact against Christ a wildly disproportionate penalty: death
After Christ's resurrection, the Book of Acts describes how the
Sanhedrin continued to authorize ruthless persecution of the church.
Finally in 132 A.D., the Jews were driven from Palestine by the Emperor
Hadrian. The Sanhedrin reassembled in Babylon, codifying their twisted
traditions into the Babylonian Talmud, the greatest religious authority
to observant Jews today.
During the 20th century, a New Sanhedrin emerged, called B'Nai
B'Rith. This international Jewish religious, educational, fraternal
and charitable organization includes all divisions of modern Jewry
under its influence. One out of thirty Jews is a member of B'Nai
B'Rith. The Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai B'Rith is the "civil
liberties" arm of B'Nai B'Rith. Ostensibly, its mission is to combat
During the last 50 years, B'Nai B'Rith and the ADL invented "anti-hate" laws.
They persuaded most nations of Europe, as well as Canada, Australia,
New Zealand and 48 American states to adopt some version of their
model anti-hate law. All B'Nai B'Rith hate laws have one thing in
common. They define "hate" as bias against federally protected groups,
Because the Bible is outspokenly "biased" against homosexuality,
calling it an abomination, the Bible becomes "hate speech" under
B'Nai B'Rith's hate laws. Evangelical Christians, adhering to the
biblical standard, become "haters" - already half-guilty of being "hate
It was a band of such Christian "haters" that Lynn Abraham, District
Attorney for the City of Philadelphia and member of the National
Executive Board of the ADL, had in her sights on the afternoon of
Oct. 10, 2004. As a member of ADL's ruling elite, Lynn Abraham knew
exactly what the "New Sanhedrin" had in mind: a bold, first step
forward in the systematic, legal persecution of Christians.
Lynn Abraham and the ADL doubtless believed that conviction of
the Christians would be quick and easy during a national news blackout.
Following that, the New Sanhedrin could strike again and again all
over the country. Utilizing its state "anti-intimidation" laws, the
ADL could pile up indictments and legal precedents so fast that Christians
would not be able to resist. Under the massive authority and armed
power of the ADL's new federal "anti-hate" law - the "Hate Crimes
Prevention Act of 2005" - the federal government, under ADL guidance,
would outlaw free speech to pastors, pro-lifers, free-speech talk
show hosts, etc. America would be locked into a "Big Brother" thought-police
That is what Lynn Abraham and the ADL's New Sanhedrin undoubtedly
thought they were setting in motion. Yet things didn't turn out that
Despite the continuing media blackout, I and Michael Marcavage,
head of the Philly Five, and more than forty courageous talk-show
hosts, among others, have been blasting through the darkness. We
have been telling the whole world what the New Sanhedrin had thought
would remain locked in obscurity in Philadelphia.
As a result, an outraged world is decrying the New Sanhedrin's
attempt to resume persecution of Christians - a persecution which
had to be abandoned 1,900 years ago. Disoriented, the hate crimes
prosecution in Philadelphia is waffling, claiming it can't find documents
and postponing hearings. B'Nai B'Rith is clearly unable to extricate
itself from the greatest blunder and public relations disaster in
Widespread anger against the whole idea of "hate laws" could not
have come at a better time. Massive public protest is necessary to
defeat the ADL's monster "anti-hate" bill, "The Hate Crimes Prevention
Act of 2005." It was introduced quietly on January 6th and now is
four weeks in the House Judiciary Committee.
This supremely dangerous legislation is intended by Lynn Abraham
and her other executives of the ADL to lock up America in an Orwellian
anti-hate bureaucracy in which every Christian, pastor, pro-lifer,
talk show host, will be slaves of political correctness as defined
by the New Sanhedrin.

1. For preaching the gospel, eleven Christians were arrested under Pennsylvania's
hate crime law.
2. This proves that late laws persecute Christians and end free speech.
