According to the title of the latest missive from the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, if a federal hate crimes bill passes, “Federal Imprisonment For Christians Is Right Around The Corner.”
Why should you be fuming and taking action before you even finish reading this? Because these two bills that are going to be sent to President Barack Obama’s desk will silence Christians from speaking against homosexuality or teaching our children that it is wrong. You would quite literally be committing a Federal crime and convicted. If these bills get passed, not only will Christians be silenced — but, the government is scheduled to swoop in with $10 Million dollars to drive a stake right into the heart of Christians by making sure your children hear and are taught everything against Judeo-Christian beliefs.
The two bills that I am talking about are the David Ray Ritcheson Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 (H.R. 262) coupled with the David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 (H.R. 256). These two bills were just introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee and are expected to be signed by President Barack Obama who has supported this legislation at the state level in the past. These two bills CANNOT get to President Obama’s desk! No way Christians! You must act now if you want to continue practicing your Christian faith and teaching it to your children. Sign the petition against Hate Crimes Legislation!
Here’s what the H.R. 262 actually says. See anything about imprisoning Christians in there?
Here’s what H.R. 256 actually says. See anything about imprisoning Christians in there?
Lying makes the baby Jeebus cry.
The original David Ray Act Of 2007 was sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee and preceded the Matthew Shepard Act, but was never approved. The Matthew Shepard Act passed both chambers of Congress later that year, but Duyba threatened to veto it when it was attached to a military appropriations bill. The act was then removed from the bill by Democratic leadership.
I’m not sure why Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee has submitted this bill under the old name. Can somebody clarify that? As far as I know, the plan is to resubmit the Matthew Shepard Act in the current session. And as you probably know, the Matthew Shepard Act contains specific provisions protecting freedom of speech.
