HATE BILL, ENDA TOP OBAMA WISH LIST
By Rev. Ted Pike
26 Jan 09
As a smiling Obama rides a tidal wave of public approval, the White
House webpage (www.whitehouse.gov, “Civil
Rights”) reveals his true identity: a left-of-left liberal determined
to pass the most pro-homosexual, free-speech destroying legislation
ever to come before Congress, including ENDA, expanded hate crime laws,
and legal “support for the LGBT community.”
Obama says, “this nation is going to live up to its founding promise of
equality by treating all its citizens with dignity and respect.”
The White House webpage says he wants to:
- Expand Hate Crimes Statutes: In 2004, crimes
against LGBT Americans constituted the third-highest category of
hate crime reported and made up more than 15 percent of such crimes.
President Obama cosponsored legislation that would expand federal
jurisdiction to include violent hate crimes perpetrated because
of race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation,
gender identity, or physical disability. As a state senator, President
Obama passed tough legislation that made hate crimes and conspiracy
to commit them against the law.
- Fight Workplace Discrimination: President Obama
supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and believes that
our anti-discrimination employment laws should be expanded to include
sexual orientation and gender identity. While an increasing number
of employers have extended benefits to their employees' domestic
partners, discrimination based on sexual orientation in the workplace
occurs with no federal legal remedy. The President also sponsored
legislation in the Illinois State Senate that would ban employment
discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
- Support Full Civil Unions and Federal Rights for LGBT
Couples: President Obama supports full civil unions
that give same-sex couples legal rights and privileges equal
to those of married couples. Obama also believes we need to repeal
the Defense of Marriage Act and enact legislation that would
ensure that the 1,100+ federal legal rights and benefits currently
provided on the basis of marital status are extended to same-sex
couples in civil unions and other legally-recognized unions…”
- Oppose a Constitutional Ban on Same-Sex Marriage: President
Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment in 2006 which
would have defined marriage as between a man and a woman and prevented
judicial extension of marriage-like rights to same-sex or other
- Repeal Don't Ask-Don't Tell: President Obama
agrees with former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff John Shalikashvili
and other military experts that we need to repeal the "don't
ask, don't tell" policy. The key test for military service
should be patriotism, a sense of duty, and a willingness to serve.
Discrimination should be prohibited...”
- Expand Adoption Rights: President Obama believes
that we must ensure adoption rights for all couples and individuals,
regardless of their sexual orientation. He thinks that a child
will benefit from a healthy and loving home, whether the parents
are gay or not.”
Deceiving the Elect?
Even many Christians and conservatives are enamored with Obama.
They better be disenchanted fast. Obama will soon use the powerful
wave of public approval as a battering ram to overwhelm Congress
and pass the hate bills and ENDA. He will use oratorical skill and
persuasion to make America a hate crimes police nation like Canada. Unless
we stop him.
Two years ago, a friend and Christian activist told that, while assigned as
a law enforcement officer to guard then-state Senator Barack Obama, he found
the politician so devoid of belief in anything except political ambition that
he thought Obama was the anti-Christ. Like the coming anti-Christ, Obama is
seen by hundreds of millions as our hoped-for deliverer. What he’ll really deliver
is unprecedented liberal legislation destroying our First Amendment liberties
and all other freedoms with it.
NOW is the time to continue protesting hate and homosexual-advancing legislation—not after
Obama’s oratory has charmed Congress and the American people.
When Obama soon makes his pitch for hate bill and ENDA passage, he must be
met by the icy response of members of Congress who have already heard from
their constituents. These have shouted, “No!” to making America
a hate crimes gestapo like Canada.

Tell your members of Congress, "Please don’t vote for ENDA
and the hate bills HR256 and HR262. Hate and bias crime laws have taken away
free speech in Canada and many European countries."
