Federal Hate Law Will Persecute You

By Rev Ted Pike
30 April 2007

The federal "anti-hate" bill, to be voted on Thursday by the U.S. House of Representatives, says anyone who verbally "intimidates" members of federally protected groups faces indictment as a hate criminal, a violator of federal law. Also, anyone who "aids, abets, counsels" 1 that criminal will face charges. This means any talk show host who interviews me could face a federal "hate crimes" trial!
Since I first sounded the alarm on the federal hate bill last November and warned of its almost certain passage in the Democrat-controlled Congress, I have been interviewed on 114 national talk shows. My message against the hate bill has probably "intimidated" two groups the federal hate bill would especially protect: homosexuals and Jews. Homosexuals are intimidated because I regularly quote Holy Scripture describing their sexual behaviors as an abomination. The Jewish Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith is intimidated by my exposure of them as architect of thought crime laws worldwide. ADL is, in fact, so intimidated they don't dare to mention my name on their website for fear tens of thousands will visit and hear the whole truth about them. The same goes for a cluster of Jewish activist organizations presided over by B'nai B'rith International. ACLU, People for the American Way, American Jewish Congress, American Jewish Committee, Southern Poverty Law Center, etc. rarely, if ever, mention Ted Pike. In contrast, I expose their anti-American, anti-Christian activities to the world from the highest place of attention I can find - talk radio and the internet. If H. R. 1592 becomes law, I and the 33 talk show hosts who have "aided and abetted" me since November are eminently indictable.
Who else will have to look over their shoulder, fearing charges as a speech criminal? Are YOU in that danger?

What Is "Intimidation?"

The term "intimidation" is so vague and subjective that it will be up to activist judges to decide who can be indicted under H.R. 1592. Certainly, the homosexual lobby thinks "homophobic” evangelicals—especially pastors who "intimidate" youth away from homosexuality and warn of God’s judgment—are potential hate criminals.
If H.R. 1592 is ratified, how will its inquisition against Christians begin? It will probably follow the pattern of our northern neighbor since 1971. In Canada, the individuals least likely to merit public favor were indicted first. Holocaust reductionists (who question the accuracy of the 6 million figure of Jewish dead during WW II and whether gas chambers were primarily responsible for loss of Jewish life) were the primary victims of ADL's federal hate bill, The Canadian Human Rights Act. Canadians of a vulgarly anti-Semitic, racist, or bigoted mentality were also arraigned first. ADL indicted when its victims wouldn’t be supported by public opinion.
But in the United States, as in Canada, hate crime legal precedents will quickly add up, enabling ADL to pursue their ultimate quarry: evangelicals. Within a few years, like wolves savaging a flock of sheep, ADL-instructed prosecutors will repeatedly indict Christian pastors, activists, publishers, educators and broadcasters. Christians will be charged with aiding, abetting or counseling those who verbally "intimidate" homosexuals away from their "natural" preferences. As with Austria’s conviction of WW II historian David Irving, it will not matter whether Christians have stopped criticizing homosexuality. Even decades-old statements will be dredged up, ex post facto, and held against them.

Jerusalem: Center of Persecution

ADL longs to revive first century persecution of Christians. Christ said this persecution would come from Jerusalem. He said His followers would be hauled before councils and synagogues to be beaten and imprisoned (Matt. 10:17, Luke 21:42). It is undoubtedly toward this ultimate objective that Knesset several years ago authorized the government of Israel to request international extradition of anyone who questions the 6 million figure of Holocaust victims. Israeli law now allows anyone in the world to be extradited and tried in an Israeli court for "desecrating of the memory of the Jewish dead.” Such a criminal faces living death in an Israeli prison.
To the virulently anti-Christian ADL, Holocaust reductionism is just one of the unforgivable sins of “anti-Semitism." Christians—even those who most generously back Israel—are inherently anti-Semitic because they believe the New Testament, which ADL's director, Abe Foxman, says is the seed of anti-Semitism throughout the ages, the seminal cause of the Holocaust. (See, ADL's Foxman: New Testament is Anti-Semitic). Today, ADL presides over a U.S. State Department "Office of Global Anti-Semitism," which defines as anti-Semitic the New Testament’s witness that Jewish leaders and laymen demanded Christ's crucifixion. (See, The Real Motive Behind the 'Department of Global Anti-Semitism') ADL also says sharing Christ with Jews is a form of racial religious hatred. Christians who fulfill their responsibility to love others by spreading the gospel and preaching from Scripture are doomed, under ADL hate laws, to indictment as anti-Semitic hate criminals! Someday, under internationally enforced hate laws, such believers will fulfill Christ's prophecy by suffering deportation to Israel for trial, prison or death in the same way that Holocaust reductionists like Germar Rudolph and Ernst Zundel have been deported to Germany for trial under Germany's ADL-inspired hate laws.

Ben-Gurion Prophesied Jewish World Control

Is Jesus’ the only prophetic voice predicting that Jerusalem will someday host a one-world government and its thought police? No. Israel's first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion prophesied her eventual dominance of the planet:

"All continents will become united in a world alliance, at whose disposal will be an international police force. All armies will be abolished, and there will be no more wars. In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the Prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the scene of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah." (Look magazine, Jan. 1962)

They’re Coming for YOU

If you "intimidate" homosexuals, Jews, Muslims, etc. in any way, by criticizing moral or social evil or witnessing for your faith, then know that H.R. 1592 will bring state-sponsored persecution to you—faster than you can imagine. This includes liberals who have criticized Islam.
We must respond to H.R. 1592 NOW. Protest not only to your House members but also to your senators. There is no doubt that through hate laws and their close cousins—ADL-inspired "anti-discrimination" laws in housing and employment—the ADL-controlled Democrat majority both in state legislatures and Congress is attempting to create a nationwide, federally enforced speech code in America, which will soon persecute and silence Christianity.
Will they be stopped? It depends on you. Call to God for deliverance. Then pick up the phone and call your House and Senate member today. Call toll free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-224-3121 and say:

Please don't vote for any hate crimes bills. If you do, I and my friends will never vote for you again.
