The world is aghast at the vehemence and severity of charges (47 years imprisonment and $90,000.00 fine each) against five embattled Christians now indicted in Philadelphia. They have been charged for the "hate crime" of singing and witnessing at a "gay pride" event.

To understand such vindictiveness against public preaching of the gospel, we need to go back 2,000 years to the ancient Sanhedrin of the Jews.

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 by crucifixion.

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 anti-semitism.

B'Nai B'Rith: Architect of Hate Laws Worldwide

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, especially homosexuals.

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 criminals."

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 state.

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 way.

Breaking Through the Media Blackout

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 its history.

Crucial Moment in History

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.

It is vital that you call Congress NOW at 202-224-3121 or toll free at 877-762-8762.

Call the 22 Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee. You can find them under "Committee on the Judiciary" on the government website at:


Call President Bush's Comment Line at 202-456-1111; or fax him at 202-456-2461.

Tell them:

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.

3. Do not approve the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005, HR 259.
