The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) had its first hearing in the House Education and Labor Committee today. (To watch the hearing, click here.) Key witnesses were homosexual Reps. Barney Frank and Tammy Baldwin. The Jewish Anti-Defamation League, architect of the bill, issued a release today saying, “Support for ENDA sends an important message to all Americans that...discrimination will not be tolerated in the workplace.” House Democrats favor ENDA’s plan to grant homosexuals, transgenders and all sexual deviants included under “sexual orientation” special rights to be hired and not fired in American businesses of 15+ employees. Meanwhile, liberal Jewish organizations are lobbying to make sure ENDA will require Christian churches to hire homosexuals in all non-spiritual positions (including church administration, business and education).
The civil rights legislation of the 1960s banned discrimination in hiring and firing. But they don’t clearly state whether churches must hire unbelievers or people of other faiths in nonspiritual positions. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 suggests churches can remain free to discriminate. In 2007, a Bush administration legal memo said churches (and even religious organizations receiving federal funds) don’t have to hire unbelievers. Now 11 Jewish groups including the Anti-Defamation League, plus other liberal organizations, are demanding that the Obama administration and Att. Gen. Eric Holder reverse Bush's "discriminatory" policy.
The Jewish Telegraph Agency:
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, 11 Jewish groups and dozens of other religious and rights organizations said the 2007 Bush Administration Office of Legal Counsel memo used an "erroneous" interpretation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act… Signing onto the letter are the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, B’nai B’rith International, Central Conference of American Rabbis, Hadassah, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, National Council of Jewish Women, Na’amat USA, Rabbinical Assembly, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and Women of Reform Judaism.
The two largest groups of American religious Jews—Reform and Conservative—broadly embrace homosexuality. Their members may openly practice their deviant lifestyle and even become rabbis. Thus, the majority of American religious Jews, who have repeatedly marshaled in favor of the pro-homosexual federal hate crimes bill, have nothing to lose by inviting even more homosexuals into their synagogues, nonprofit businesses, schools and summer camps. Polls consistently show that roughly four out of five American Jews are liberals who vote for the homosexual-friendly policies of the Democrat party.
In contrast, the vast majority of evangelical Christians are morally opposed to homosexuality. ENDA would force Christian churches to hire activist homosexuals and thus devastate the spiritual autonomy and identity of American evangelicalism.
Organized Jewry in America thus reveals its continuing opposition to Christianity. Evangelicals, on the other hand, have historically favored Judaism and supported Israel unconditionally. They still exempt Israel's PR representative, the virulently anti-Christian Anti-Defamation League, from criticism. Liberal Jews in America are biting the hands of those who have fed them.
Is the church mounting its own counteroffensive against ENDA and four other Christian-persecuting hate bills now surging through Congress? With few exceptions, it is not. But YOU can join the National Prayer Network at www.truthtellers.org as we rally opposition to ENDA and the flood of new Christian-persecuting, ADL-conceived hate crimes bills.
Call your two Senators and House members toll-free at 877-851-6437 or 202-225-3121 toll and say, “I am angry that the Democrats are moving forward even more freedom-stealing hate crimes bills. I will vote against the Senator and Congressman who votes for ENDA and other hate crime legislation.”
Please send a similar message to the pivotal members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, names available on the Action Page at www.truthtellers.org.
The religious right, following the defeatist advice of Dr. James Dobson, has largely concluded that it is useless at the present time to fight the Democrat majority in Congress and its five hate bills (See, July 11, 09 article, "Possible Hate Bill Vote Moday...Dobson Fails Us in the Battle."). Focusing on healthcare, conservatives hope to alienate voters against the Democrats at midterm elections next year and regain control of Congress. Yet, it is likely that Democrats this fall will steamroll opposition and pass Obama’s healthcare plan. History has shown that when a controversial plan becomes federal law, organized opposition quickly dissipates. Conservatives may well lack the momentum to actually overthrow the Democrats. Meanwhile, they will have allowed at least five major hate crimes bills to pass, creating a legally enforceable, Christian-persecuting hate crimes bureaucracy in America.
If this happens, even the most upright conservative President who might be elected could not halt it; the federal government, justice department, FBI and all local police would be obligated to enforce anti-Christian persecution—at least until the hate laws were repealed. And that is unheard of once hate laws are passed. No nation laboring under hate crimes bureaucracies established by ADL has thrown off its freedom-destroying yoke. Hate laws, like Roe v. Wade, reveal an incredible tenacity to outlive public opposition.
How, I ask, can anyone consider this terrifying scenario and not pick up their phone right now and protest?

Fox News Rips "Pedophile-Protecting" Hate Bill:
...[Fox News anchor Megyn] Kelly interviewed Rep. Steve King, who attempted to amend the hate bill in Judiciary last week to explicitly exclude pedophiles. King reported how Rep. Alcee Hastings, a pro-hate bill Democrat, proudly claimed practitioners of 547 paraphilias listed by the American Psychiatric Association can "live without fear" once the hate bill is passed.
Ms. Kelly also expressed indignation that, while the Democrats acted to protect pedophiles, they rejected Republican efforts to obtain similar special protection for war veterans. Especially in times of unpopular wars, these are common victims of "hate crimes," spit upon or attacked because of who they are -- military defenders of America's freedom...
Alert to Congress Regarding Hate Bills and the False Flag Attack Threat by America First Books publisher William B. Fox. Two-thirds down the web page please find the essay "The Hate Crime Law Concept: It is all very sinister for at least nine major reasons."
Also, earlier on this same page I comment:
Although Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
This is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime” laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.
Hate crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence or infringement on the rights of others.
In our articles related to false flag attacks, Capt. Eric H. May and I have discussed strong evidence that Mossad-CIA was behind 9-11, the mere "thought" of which would some day be outlawed once hate crime oversight bureaucracies become firmly implanted in America. We can expect government hate crime overwatch entities to experience the usual cancerous growth and abuse of power that libertarian writer and Presidential candidate Harry Browne described in his classic book Why Government Doesn't Work.
