- The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) had its
first hearing in the House Education and Labor Committee today. 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.

- 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 <http://www.truthtellers.org/>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 <http://www.truthtellers.org/actionplan.html>Action

- 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, "<http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/possiblehatebillvotemonday.htm>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
- 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?
- Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have
saddled 45 states with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and
spearhead attempts to pass the federal hate crimes bill: <http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp>http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
