Congress to Revive Hate Crime Bill to Censor Christians
The Voice magazine ^ | April 6, 2009 | Dr. Gary L. Cass

Posted on 04/06/2009 12:05:41 PM PDT by truthnomatterwhat

One of the gravest threats to religious liberty and freedom of speech is proposed hate crime legislation. Even while national attention is focused is on the economy and Obama’s radical economic and foreign policy, the far left is at work undermining our First Amendment rights at home with hate crime legislation.

In other countries where these types of laws have been implemented, pastors and Christians have been jailed and fined for their faithful adherence to the scriptures.

US Congressman John Conyers is reintroducing the same hate crime bill that was passed in the last Congress, but was vetoed by President Bush. Conyers hopes that it will be passed and signed by President Obama.

The assault against Christianity by Democrats continues. There will be backlash at the next election assuming the GOP has brains. That is a big assumption though.

Good! Let them pass it, let Obama sign it!

Let the Feds attempt to arrest popular pastors, and maybe whole congregations, in various Conservative sections of the country!

Molon Labe!

Let's get the party started!

I agree. I hope we will not be cowards if they move against us. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church. And the foundation of freedom, I might add.

Christianity, being the truth, is the only religion that the left (Satan’s useful idiot brigade) attacks.

We should expect it.

Yep. Get the whole congregation to march down Main Street with "hate signs" echoing the pastors' sermons and let's see The Bubba Effect take shape.

The Left will rue the day...

The lie-berals got the activist courts, on the third try, to take out of context the words of Thomas Jefferson in which he told the Danbury Baptist, when they requested of him to make the practice of religion an unalienable right, that he would put a wall of separation between the state and church to protect the church. They got their illegal grant and now they want to tell the church what to say and not say.

Goose-steppers all!!!

Matthew 10:22 (NIV)
22 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Matthew 10:39 (NIV)
39Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

Luke 21:5-19 (NIV)
Signs of the End of the Age

5Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said, 6”As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”

7”Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?”

8He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. 9When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

10Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

12”But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13This will result in your being witnesses to them. 14But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17All men will hate you because of me. 18But not a hair of your head will perish. 19By standing firm you will gain life.

Dear wife Monica Conyers is maybe the biggest idiot on the Detroit City Council. To snag that title among those fools is REALLY saying something.

The American people have been given the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. What virus has infected Congress and the judicial sector in order to trash those sacred documents, and what is the antidote? We, the people, no longer have standing! And the government is above the law.

These are evil days, indeed!

Well, oscumbo clearly stated (to his fellow moslems) that the U.S. was NOT a Christian nation.

This bill simply seeks to implement his strategy: Make Christianity illegal.

Republicans are guilty here too. It passed the last Congress when the Dems didn’t have the majority.
