How will hate crime legislation that favors gay activists fare in congress and the Senate when it certainly will be used against Christian pastors, conservative Rabbis, and Muslim mullahs who tell the truth about homosexuality from their Afro-Asiatic perspectives? That's the $64.000 question!
And what about teachers who teach about the Afro-Asiatic worldview strictly as a matter of information?
The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to mark-up the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 this Wednesday, April 22. At issue is whether homosexuals should receive special protection not given to other Americans. If "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" become protected classes, it will be a Federal offense to speak about the Biblical orders of creation since such speech will be interpreted as speaking "hate" against homosexuality.
In a previous hearing, Rep. Artur Davis (D-AL) admitted that under the legislation pastors could be arrested for "hate crimes" when they teach that the Biblical worldview recognizes heterosexuality as the God-ordered pattern of creation.
