Skip to comments.Congress to Revive Hate Crime Bill to Censor Christians
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 Obamas 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.

So much for the 1st Amendment.
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.
Let the Feds attempt to arrest popular pastors, and maybe whole congregations, in various Conservative sections of the country!
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.
There, fixed it.
Christianity, being the truth, is the only religion that the left (Satan’s useful idiot brigade) attacks.
We should expect it.
There has to be a triggering event, and this might as well be it.
Philippians 1:21 - “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
I’m fear not.
>I fear not, rather.
Guess all those liberal pro choice Catholics that voted for our Anti - American anti - Christian President, did not see what the rest of us saw coming..
Congress critter ping!
I signed the petition.
The Left will rue the day...
I suggest everyone get to know some bubbas.
A right to free speech? Where do you people think you are...the United States??
We won’t be. We will stand up to these fools.
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.
Disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God.
When will we be approved as LION food?

Not to be overly alarmist, but this is still America, right?
I call John “We demand slavery reparations” Conyers “John Conman.”
I have already contacted Conyers office and my representative Pete Hoekstra.

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, 6As 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.
7Teacher, 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.
12But 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.
Assuming that there WILL BE a next election. Read your history of tryants and dictators!
Ping RE: Persecution of Christians
[This time by liberals here in the U.S. wanting “Hate Crime” Laws...]
Agreed ... let them pass the bill ... then ... Molon Labe. The sooner we put their nonsense behind us, the better.
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.
They aren’t going to stop at censoring Christians... I believe they’ll go after all “incorrect” thoughts.
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!
Let’s plant some seeds for them to start with the bible belt in the south so they can meet the good old boys.
I didn’t realize they had eyes!
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.
