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.

Breaking News

Hate crimes laws may make you a lawbreaker! Such laws, while claiming to promote tolerance, actually lead to the end of free speech! Powerful articles and NPN’s video exposé of hate crimes laws in Canada and the United States provide you with the vital tools necessary to combat this imminent threat to freedom. This video is especially important as acts of terrorism extend the power of "Big Brother" to monitor what you do, say, and think.

Read the latest news.

White House sources have revealed that President Trump regrets following the left-conciliating advice of his son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner regarding police reform.
They say he has abandoned Kushner’s advice on this issue, returning to his previous assertion that “systemic racism” in American police is a virtual non-issue compared to the magnitude of protection and fair play which the vast majority of police provide all citizens.

17 December, 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT - Trump Supports Jewish Claim: Christianity is Antisemitic.
President Trump’s recent Executive Order IS THE TEXT of the Jewish ADL’s “Anti-Semitism Awareness Act, S852, recently rejected by the US Senate for Committee consideration.

“Anti-Semitism Awareness” Bill Worse than “Equality” Bill! Good news! The Christian-threatening, LGBT- promoting “Equality Act” could not face confrontation with hostile Senate Judiciary Republicans this spring. It went nowhere. Yet Democrats could still try to get it through the Senate Judiciary. NPN will sound the alarm at if it starts to move forward.

18 May 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT - Senate New Forum for “Equality” Bill Debate
Call the Congress Hotline at 1-202-224-3121 and ask for a Senator’s office. I suggest you say: “Please don’t vote for the “Equality Act” S788. It will help end free speech for Christians making them criminals if they criticize Homosexuality”.

01 May 2019 - EMERGENCY ALERT - “Equality” Bill Hastens Babylon the Great - Part Two
If Jews acquire full protection as a “protected class” in America it will mean that if a Jew complains to the government that he has suffered “acute emotional trauma” as a result of “anti semitic” discrimination or criticism of his race or religion he may prompt a federal investigation. If the government agrees, the defendant will have to retain the best lawyer he can find.
