WATCH HATE BILL HEARINGS TOMORROW!
By Rev. Ted Pike
21 Apr 09
Interviewed today on one of the largest evangelical/conservative
“Point of View” (400 affiliates), I invited more than a million
Christians to watch Rep. Conyer’s hate bill hearings tomorrow morning.
In my opinion, HR1913 is the most dangerous legislation ever to come before Congress. It
surpasses even the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. If passed it will lead
us immediately into a hate crimes judicial system and bureaucracy like Canada’s,
where pastors, talk show hosts, even private citizens can be indicted as federal
hate criminals if they criticize Islam, homosexuality, or illegal immigrants.
Will Conyers give this grave issue the time and attention it deserves? Last Congress,
he allowed two and half days of spirited debate. The controversy generated by
eleven bulldog Republicans, criticizing his hate bill and proposing amendments,
drew attention to the hate law issue in Congress and spread rebellion throughout
180 House Republicans. This resulted in no less than six major Orwellian
bills being defeated or set aside in the 110th Congress. Conyers doesn’t
want that to happen again!
Tell as many as possible to tune in tomorrow morning!
What: House Judiciary hearings on HR 1913, The Local
Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act.
When: 10:15 A.M. EDT, Wednesday, April 22nd.
Where: http://judiciary.house.gov/hearings/caltoday.html Click
the "Watch Video Webcast" icon. (The latest version of RealPlayer is
needed to view the video.)
Regardless of what is said and done tomorrow, only one day of hearings (probably
less), without adequate notification of expert witnesses is a high-handed,
unethical end-run around the accepted legislative process.
Watch the hearings. Then speak out loudly in church, on talk shows, internet,
Demand that the hate bill buck stop in the House Judiciary - not on the desk
of a president determined to sign it!
Watch the dynamic 10-minute educational video How to Kill the
Hate Bills at www.truthtellers.org which
explains how the two hate bills, HR256 and HR262, threaten freedom.
Please tell the offices of members of Congress to watch it! Also
at www.truthtellers.org, watch our gripping 82-minute documentary Hate
Laws: Making Criminals of Christians.
Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states with
hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass the
federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
