Christian Anti Defamation Commission

I receive a daily news letter from Dr. Gary L. Cass and the CADC ‘Christian Anti-Defamation Commission’. I highly recommend this news letter, you will find it well worth the read.

This Isn’t In Our Imaginations

There was an ominous knock at the door at the home of an older Christian couple. Two police men presented themselves on the doorstep. After an intimidating and invasive hour long police interview, the Christians were warned they were very close to going to jail for seven years.

It all started when the couple noticed their community was displaying pro-homosexual materials for the general public. So the Christians decided that they would call their local elected official and ask if they could have equal treatment and set out some Christian literature, too.

They spoke to a member of the official’s staff. The couple was told “no,” they could not distribute Christian literature. Why? The community was committed to diversity and Christian materials might offend homosexuals.

But the Christians said that they found the homosexual material offensive. Just for expressing their offense on a private phone call to their elected official’s office, the staff member filed a police report accusing them of a hate crime. The police then came knocking and threatened to lock them up.

Apparently diversity and tolerance is a one way street, offending and intimidating Christians is perfectly lawful.

This is part of a larger pattern of intimidation against Christians in England where hate crime laws have been implemented. It’s coming to the US if we don’t act to stop the “Hate Crime Bill, S.909. This bill, S.909, lays the legal foundation for intimidating anyone who declares the biblical truth about homosexuality or Islam. We know this because in countries like England and Canada, where hate crime laws have been implemented, this is what happens.

Another British Christian, Andy Robertson, an open air preacher, was confronted and told by police officers after preaching an open-air message. Someone had alleged that Robertson had attacked homosexuality as a sin which the police told him was a criminal offense. A recording of his message demonstrated that he had not said anything about homosexuality and whoever reported him was lying.

Is this what it’s going to come to in America? Are we going to have the police monitoring our speech to insure that we have politically correct doctrine? In Canada, American Christian broadcasters are censored already from saying anything critical of Islam or a person’s sexual sin.

This is the kind of intimidation and censorship that we will all be subject to if we let the pending federal hate crime law S.909 pass in the US Senate. The Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the bill just last week. There is still time to oppose this bill while it goes through the Senate mark-up session.  End of CADC article

Thanks to Dr. Cass and the CADC for keeping these issues in the forefront as the government would rather this take place with much less extravaganza.

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith.
