- Attention has recently focused on threatened passage
of federal "anti-hate" bill H.R. 1592. But equal danger is faced
at the state level, as many state governments are stiffening their own
"anti-hate" or "anti-bias" laws. The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith is architect of this anti-Christian legislation
worldwide. If ADL can't succeed in using federal force to persecute Christians,
state hate laws can be strengthened to do the job. Certainly, ADL made
powerful use of Pennsylvania's "anti-intimidation" law in 2005
to arrest and jail 11 Christians-the work of ADL national executive board
member and Philadelphia DA Lynne Abraham.
- "Bias" Bill in Oregon Threatens Church
- Here in Oregon, the senate of our legislature
has approved sweeping pro-homosexual legislation, S.B. 2, that bans any
discrimination in housing or employment. This bill would force churches
to hire homosexuals in positions that are not strictly spiritual or educational!
These jobs could include bookkeeping, secretarial, maintenance, and employees
of any church-related businesses. Judges will have power to say where churches'
rights begin or end.
- S.B. 2 also mandates a statewide education
program to "prevent bias" against homosexuality in young people;
that bias means Christians' Biblical beliefs!
- Nearly 500 pastors recently met at our capitol
in Salem, protesting to legislators that S.B. 2 threatens our "Judeo-Christian"
values and society. But I have a question. How many of these concerned
clergy realize this threat has come primarily as a result of liberal Jewish
- Forging Chains that Bind the Church
- ADL is the "civil liberties" arm
of B'nai B'rith International-a worldwide, liberal, very anti-Christian,
religious, educational, and fraternal Jewish organization. In 1988 ADL
opened a competition to America's law students to help create a "model
anti-hate statute" for America. Jewish law student Joseph Ribakoff
was awarded first prize. He advocated that leaders of any organization
that showed a video critical of homosexuality should be arrested; members
who remained members should also be arrested. (Watch <http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7217700265038533779&q=Hate+Laws+Ted+Pike>"Hate
Laws: Making Criminals of Christians" at google.)
- By 1990, ADL finalized their model hate law
statute. That year, ADL also persuaded Congress to pass their "Hate
Crimes Statistics Act" which put ADL in charge of instructing the
FBI, Justice Department, and all police in their twisted definitions of
bias, hate, prejudice, and intolerance.
- During the 1990s, ADL visited every state
legislature in America and persuaded at least 45 to adopt some version
of their model hate law. To each state, ADL said:
- 1. Homosexuals, as a historically oppressed
group, are entitled to special privileges and protections. Their sexual
preference deserves equal status with gender, race, and religion.
- 2. A bias-oriented justice system must
be established in the state. Bias against homosexuality is a grave threat
to society. If bias motivates any crime, a "hate crime" has
- 3. Because bias against victimized groups
such as homosexuals and Jews is very bad, triple penalties will be sentenced
when such bias motivates a crime.
- What's the message? Any attitude worthy of
triple penalties is very, very, very bad. So don't ever be biasedespecially
- S.B. 2: Another ADL Hate Crimes Bill
- Here in Oregon, S.B. 2 is very much a hate
crimes bill. It exemplifies ADL's working definition that "hate"
is bias against specially protected groups. When such bias motivates a
crime, small or great, a hate crime has occurred.
- Under S.B. 2, a church's refusal to hire
a homosexual as a secretary or janitor is an illegal act motivated
by bias: a hate crime. (Since this crime by church officials is essentially
the same as any other hate crime, I am surprised S.B. 2 does not mandate
triple penalties. That will probably come soon enough.)
- ADL sold its model hate law statutes to legislators
during the 1990s as necessary to deter violent bias crime. To most legislators,
this goal seems worthy. Between 1990 and 2000, about 45 states practically
waited in line to rubberstamp this "win-win" legislation. During
that period-apart from national mailings against hate laws by the National
Prayer Network and the research work of a few specialists such as Robert
L. Knight-virtually no conservative organization protested. At <http://www.adl.org/>www.adl.org
extensive charts quantify ADL's success in persuading states to adopt their
model hate law. See if your state earns excellent marks by implementing
all ADL's requirements or "fails" by continuing to rely on the
traditional judge-and-jury system to obtain justice for victims of all
- Today, ADL along with the ACLU, another Jewish-dominated
anti-Christian attack group (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/acluheavywithjews.html>ACLU
Top Heavy with Jews), is encouraging another wave of bias crime legislation.
Labor, workplace environment, and fair housing laws all make it a hate
crime to be biased and break the law by discrimination against homosexuals.
- Why Does ADL Keep Winning?
- ADL's agenda is sensationally effective against
Christian values because ADL is 100 percent Jewish. According to the unbiblical
theology of most evangelicals, Jewish activists can't be criticized or
even identified as the source of this relentless attack. That would mean
"cursing God's chosen people." Partly for this reason, no Christian/conservative
leader will identify ADL as the primary engine of destruction against Christian
civilization. They know that if they do Jewish media will trash them as
"anti-Semites," a charge 24 million evangelicals will accept
at face value, abandoning all support for that leader's ministry.
- Consequently, the church continues to reel
from repeated assaults by "organized world Jewry:" ADL, B'nai
B'rith, ACLU, People for the American Way, the Southern Poverty Law Center,
and myriads of other leftwing Jewish activist groups -- not to mention
the Jewish-dominated media.
- Jesus said that when a church is "trodden
under foot of men," as the American church has been for at least 40
years, there is a simple reason for its powerlessness: "The salt has
lost its savor." (Luke 14:34)
- Such heroes of the faith as Jeremiah, John
the Baptist, and Paul possessed the "true grit" of undiluted
spiritual saltiness. They spoke boldly against Jewish evil, leaving the
consequences to God. They did not fear the Jewish fable that God will
rain wrath upon the individual who criticizes "God's chosen people."
- Instead of an imagined threat from God, evangelical
leaders should fear the very real and Biblical warning that if a leader
does not alert the people promptly and specifically concerning the approach
of the enemy he will lose his eternal soul. (Ezek. 33:6) Leaders may fear
losing their ministry today if they criticize ADL; but if ADL is allowed
to destroy America behind the scenes they will soon lose their ministry
anyway. In fact, their silence today may someday cost them their lives
- How does the church regain the spiritual
saltiness so desperately needed to hold back ADL's onslaught? We must
abandon ourselves to God and the whole truth, absolutely believing He will
never leave or forsake those who put Him first.
- We must eagerly and hungrily avail ourselves
of sources of spiritual and political salt when God brings them to us.
