The office of Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) confirmed Wednesday that she will introduce the federal hate crimes bill into Congress. During the past 2 congresses, she has done so during the first week in January.

If you have been hesitant to begin protest calling, thinking the hate bill might not be introduced, then wait no longer. There is great advantage to protesting NOW, before an avalanche of other bills vies for the attention of super-busy members of Congress. Most of the great battles of history were won by those who took war to the enemy, not waiting until war came to them.

Call toll free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121. Tell your elected representatives: “Please don’t vote for the federal hate crime bill. Hate laws have taken away freedom in Canada and many European countries.” [List of Members of Congress and Phone Numbers to Reach Them]

To keep defeating the hate bill, we must become educated concerning its sinister misrepresentations and consequences. Now you and your friends can do that in only ten minutes! Watch my powerfully persuasive, ten-minute video Hate Bill Lies: Exposed!.

Of course, we cannot succeed without God’s help. But the practical secret to defeat the hate bill right now is to create discussion and controversy about it on Capitol Hill. Pro-hate bill Democrats don’t want such discussion and investigation. They want to quietly, swiftly move it through the House and Senate Judiciary Committees without hearings, and then to votes on the floors.

Nor can we count on open, even-handed discussion by the big liberal media. The media wants to distract or lull us to sleep while the Democrats sneak through the hate bill. This is exactly what happened in Canada in 1971. Result: now in Canada it is a federal crime to quote Bible criticisms of homosexuality from the pulpit or airwaves. Penalty: at least $5000 initial fine, with prison if such criticisms are repeated.

Never has a more dangerous bill come before Congress — legislation that will quickly move us into a Canadian-style bureaucracy and Gestapo run by thought police and homosexual informers. Only you and thousands like you can create the necessary controversy to slow down hate bill passage.

Be sure of one thing: The homosexual lobby is already orchestrating massive calling to Congress to pass the hate bill. Do we at least equal the zeal of sodomites as we protest this theft of freedom?

God and the people defeated the hate bill five times over the past ten years. This proves we have changed history and can change it again.
