[COMMENT: The so-called Hate Crimes bill is no help to homosexual or any other persons. It succeeds only in making honest public discussion impossible, indeed, criminal. That is nothing short of treason against the very heart of our governmental system. Our constitution is built precisely to ensure that every bill, every enactment of legislation, every enforcement of law, must be able to withstand the test of honest, open public discussion.
Homosexual persons are the least well served by such laws because then they are denied that very honest discussion which might shed light on their situation. If their "condition" cannot withstand the test of candid discussion, then there is serious darkness afoot.
The homosexual agenda means to shut down the very honesty about homosexuality which they, above all, so badly need. And the homosexual population is itself being used by political forces for their own tyrannical ends, as cannon fodder for tearing down the moral structure of the nation.
The people behind this destruction of America do not care for homosexual persons, only for their own power grab.
If we will not stand up and vigorously counter this betrayal
of our society, we will shortly be at the mercy of rulers who care only for
themselves, not for the people. Stand up and be counted. E. Fox]

FEDERAL 'ANTI-HATE' BILL INTRODUCED IN HOUSE
By Rev. Ted Pike
On January 5, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, quietly introduced the Anti-Defamation League’s federal hate crimes bill into the House of Representatives. This is the same hate bill she introduced two years ago, which was passed by the House in fall 2005. Previously called The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, this freedom-stealing legislation has been repeatedly defeated, usually as a result of public outcry and Republican opposition in Conference.
ADL has dramatically changed the title. It is now The David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act, in memory of a Texan adolescent brutally sodomized with a metal pipe. Ray replaces Matthew Shephard as the new poster boy of hate law propaganda. Many in Congress will be inclined to pass this legislation with their sympathy votes.
Rep. Lee’s office told me that since the House passed this bill in 2005, it could rapidly pass to the floor for a vote. If there is strong bipartisan support in Congress for a defunct bill, it can be resurrected in committee in minutes, by calling for a vote of approval.
The hate bill enjoys this kind of strong bipartisan support; it passed the House previously by a large margin. We know for sure that ADL and Pelosi plan to have it ratified during their “first 100 hours.”
Take Action Now
Here’s what all lovers of free speech must do, preferably before the weekend:
Rep. Lee’s office said bills’ progress through committee depends on how much support or criticism they receive. It’s time to bury the hate bill in an avalanche of protest from tens of thousands of Americans! This is how we defeated the hate bill three times in the last two years. This is how we can again save free speech for our children, our grandchildren and ourselves.
