Will These Lies Ever Stop???

In the past two days I have received two emails from the Family Research Council and the American Family Association (yes Don Wildmon, I still get your action alerts even though you took me off your list once already!).  They are both lies and I have to say that I am getting sick of them, and the nice thing is American senators are getting sick of them too.  These people keep saying that the Hate Crime Legislation is about speaking.  I can’t say it enough that that is a total and absolute lie–there is even a sentence in the legislation that says it will not interfere with free speech!

What do groups like the Family Research Council and American Family Association really want?  It is money, pure and simple.  The AFA is notorious for begging for money.  Here is what they say after every Action Alert:

 

If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift? Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

If you remember, I wrote about how involved the Wildmon family is in the AFA and how it really supports them.  It even puts their own kids though college!  So the ‘us’ in ‘would you please support us’ is the Wildmon family.  Here are the two Action Alerts from these hate groups I’ve taken out all the links):

 

Hate Crimes Laws: Censoring the Church and Silencing Christians
June 13, 2007 | Refer a Friend

Advocates of a sweeping national "hate crimes" law are on the verge of victory in the U.S. Congress. With massive funding from the homosexual lobby, these advocates are moving one step closer to the day when the federal government will be able to investigate, and punish, politically incorrect speech and thoughts.
Think "it can’t happen here"? In October 2004, a small group of Christians, now known as the "Philadelphia 11," were arrested and spent a night in jail for preaching the Gospel at a "gay pride" event. They were charged with a "hate crime" under Pennsylvania law. Though the case was ultimately dismissed, the Christians had no support from the ACLU and other self-described champions of free speech. More and more, the political left is protecting the First Amendment rights only of speakers they agree with.
Hate crimes laws now threaten free speech and religious liberty nationwide. They have the potential to "shut down churches and send pastors to prison for simply reading a part of the Bible," as Dr. D. James Kennedy has warned.
Family Research Council, along with Coral Ridge Ministries, invites you to order a copy of our provocative new video, "Hate Crimes Laws": Censoring the Church and Silencing Christians. This program, which I had the honor to host, features shocking examples of how hate crimes laws trample free speech, muzzle broadcasters, and intimidate pastors in country after country.
For a limited time, with a donation of any amount, you can obtain this 40-minute video and discover how even the Bible is being deemed "hate" literature. The time has come for every citizen to take action. Violent crimes are despicable, and their perpetrators deserve swift and certain punishment. But the purpose of "hate crime" laws is to attribute violence to certain ideas as a way of attacking and ultimately outlawing those ideas, among them, that homosexual conduct is wrong and unhealthy.
If hate crime laws proliferate, the freedom to speak one’s mind will be limited to those who celebrate and promote homosexuality.
Please click here to order your copy of Censoring the Church and Silencing Christians. Watch it and share it with your neighbors, family, and friends. Our freedom to speak is the bedrock of our political liberties. Help us spread the word.

 

P.S. The American left knows it’s politically hard to oppose any bill that says it’s about stopping "hate crimes." This power grab in Congress is not about prosecuting crimes, however, it’s about punishing thoughts. With our new video, produced with Coral Ridge Ministries, you will understand the real agenda behind this massive power shift to Washington. Please order your copy today, then forward this message to anyone else who wants to understand the real agenda behind the new federal "hate crimes" bill. Thank you and God bless you.

A bill in Congress makes it a crime for pastors and churches to speak against homosexuality

Message to pastors and other Christians: Just keep your mouth shut

Dear Kevin,

If pastors and other Christians don’t aggressively oppose a bill now in Congress, in the near future they will be subject to huge fines and prison terms if they say anything negative about homosexuality.

The proposed law would make it a crime to preach on Romans Chapter 1 or I Corinthians Chapter 6.  Or even to discuss them in a Sunday School class.  If churches and individuals want to keep the government from telling them what they can and cannot preach and teach about homosexuality, they better get involved now!

House bill H.R. 1592 and Senate bill S. 1105 would make negative statements concerning homosexuality, such as calling the practice of homosexuality a sin from the pulpit, a “hate crime” punishable by law. This dangerous legislation would take away your freedom of speech and your freedom of religion.  Consider what has already happened:

  • A California lawsuit which is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court would make the use of the words “natural family,” “marriage” and “union of a man and a woman” a “hate speech” crime in government workplaces.  The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has already ruled in favor of the plaintiffs! 

  • CNN and The Washington Post both reported that General Peter Pace, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was fired because he publicly expressed moral opposition to homosexual behavior.

Take Action

We are looking for one million Americans willing to take a stand and not allow a small group of homosexual activists to take away our freedoms.  Can we count on you? Click on the link below to sign our Petition to Congress in Defense of Religious Freedom.

Please forward this to others, especially your pastor, and ask them to get involved in protecting our freedoms of speech and religion.  This threat to our religious freedoms is real!
