Stand in Opposition to the Hate Crimes Bill

The Senate has decided to try to get the hate crimes bill passed as an amendment rather than as a standalone bill. This is in an effort to avoid a "the danger of a filibuster in the Senate," in the words of openly gay Senator Barney Frank.

The bill was originally known as the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, S.909. Now it is being presented as an amendment to the Defense Reauthorization Act, H.R. 2647. Several committee hearings are expected to be held on June 11 & 12. It has already been approved in the U.S. House as H.R. 1913.

I am asking all of you to join myself along with thousands of others in an effort to flood each member of the Senate with personal correspondence in opposition to this legislation. Vision America is joining several other organizations who are urging as many people as possible to stand together and voice our protest against this threat to our First Amendment right to free speech.

Select here and with one click you can send a fax to every U.S. Senator, expressing opposition to the pending hate crimes legislation, also known as the "Pedophile Protection Act" due to its inclusion of pedophiles as a protected class under the proposal that protects homosexuals from hate crimes.

More than 500,000 letters and faxes have been sent to the members of the Senate. This effort has caught the left by surprise, prompting them to now try to hide this wicked piece of legislation to avoid additional scrutiny and the outcry that will surely follow if the sleeping majority awakens to their direct assault on freedom and decency.

President Obama has made his position clear on making behavior which God forbids and those who participate in it a protected class: "I urge members on both sides of the aisle to act on this important civil rights issue by passing this legislation to protect all of our citizens from violent acts of intolerance."

In other words, "We will tolerate what God forbids, but we will not tolerate Preachers who call it sin!"

I urge YOU to take a stand against this legislation by participating in this campaign. Now, more than ever, those of us who believe and adhere to Biblical morality must speak out.
