ADL SETS UP 'PHILLY 11' CHRISTIANS
By Rev. Ted Pike

The Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai B'Rith claims that, out of
the purest motives, it is working to create a "hate free" world.
To facilitate this goal, the ADL is working with city officials and
citizens to create model "hate free" communities around
On Feb. 20, 2002, Lansdowne Mayor Jayne Young announced that Lansdowne's
Borough officials had signed on with the ADL's "no place for
hate" program. As a result, the ADL moved in to intensely indoctrinate
city government, police, schools and the community that Christian "homophobia" is
not only a psychiatric disorder, it is "hate."
So "unbiased" did the inhabitants of Lansdowne become
that they elected an open homosexual to the city council. He persuaded
the city council that they should especially attract homosexuals
Yet, during a July 21, 2004 hearing to consider his proposal, a
young Christian activist, Michael Marcavage, was given the microphone
and allowed three minutes of testimony. He objected, contending that
homosexuality is against God's law. He attempted to read from the
Bible, but was ordered not to by the president of the council, who
stated that the Bible is "hate speech."
Michael was struck by one of the council members and further assaulted
by the Lansdowne police chief. He was then ordered out of city hall.
The next day, the police chief informed him that he was being charged
with "disrupting a public meeting" and "disorderly
conduct." Penalties: 15 months in jail and a $2,800.00 fine.
It was clearly because of Marcavage's notoriety, and his obstruction
of the ADL in their desire to make Lansdowne an ADL "hate free" community,
that Lynne Abraham, District Attorney of Philadelphia and national
executive board member of the ADL, gave orders on Oct.10th to arrest
Marcavage. She and the ADL hoped to incarcerate him for 47 years
under conviction for 3 felonies and 5 misdemeanors, permanently removing
him as an obstacle to the ADL's dream of a "hate free" Philadelphia.
Fortunately, perhaps the only incorruptible judge in the Philadelphia
court system, Judge Pamela Dembe, on Feb. 17, 2005, threw out Lynne
Abraham's case against Michael and the "Philadelphia 5." On
the same day, the Borough of Lansdowne also dismissed their charges
Yet ADL inspired anti-Christian bias against Michael remains. Very
recently in Lansdowne about 200 residents held a candlelight march
against Michael, protesting the presence of such a Christian "hater" in
Although the ADL failed to permanently remove the Christian witness
of Michael and his friends from Lansdowne and Philadelphia, the ADL
continues to organize many other communities across America into "hate-free
zones" – anti-Christian communities opposed to Christian "intolerance."
The ADL intones about the "epidemic of hate" ravaging
America. Their ultimate goal is passage of the "Hate Crimes
Prevention Act of 2005," HR 259, which has received overwhelming
pledges of support from both houses of Congress. It is now in the
House Judiciary Committee. (To oppose, call toll free 1-877-762-8762).
Clearly, the ADL's vision of a "hate free" world means:
1. wide-open tolerance for anything perverse and anti-Christian,
2. zero tolerance for Christianity.
