House of Reps set to vote on 'hate crimes' giving homosexuals special rights

Got this in an email, was wondering if anyone else had seen it. It decribes something that my pastor has been saying would eventually happen.


House of Representatives set to vote on 'hate crimes' giving homosexuals special rights

Contact Your Representative In Opposition to HR 254 Today!

Dear B,


The U.S. House of Representatives will soon vote on HR 254, which establishes “hate crime” legislation. HR 254 will create new special rights for homosexuals under the guise of enhancing law enforcement. It would make “sexual orientation” a protected class alongside race, religion and gender.

The only way this bill can be defeated is with a real grassroots uprising by those who care about the future of their children, families and marriages!

The intent of this law is to force the acceptance and approval of homosexuality on every American, regardless of their religious views. Here is a short summary of HR 254.

Here is a partial list of what homosexual activists are trying to force on every American. While HR 254 will not, in and of itself, accomplish these goals, it will open the door to such regulations. Once the elephant gets its trunk under the tent, the way is open for the elephant to move inside and do whatever he wants.

*Preaching that homosexuality is a sin from the pulpit will result in the preacher being charged with “hate speech.”
*Churches will have their tax-exempt status revoked if they oppose homosexuality.
*Homosexual marriage will be legalized and recognized in all states.
*Polygamy will be legalized.
*Landlords will be forced to rent to homosexuals.
*Scouts, and all non-profit organizations, will be required to hire homosexuals as leaders.
*Biblical language used to define homosexuality will be considered “hate speech.” City officials have already had a billboard removed in Long Island, NY, because it was classified as “hate speech.” The billboard read: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.” (Leviticus 20:13)
*Employees will not be allowed to say anything negative about homosexuality in their workplaces.
*Classes promoting the homosexual lifestyle will be included in school curricula beginning with the lower grades.
*Employers will be forced to hire homosexuals.
*Adoption by homosexuals will be legalized in every state.

Let me say again: HR 254 will not, in and of itself, accomplish everything the homosexual activist’s desire. But it is the first step is to position their cause where they can achieve all their goals.

If they are successful with HR 254, rest assured they will pursue their next goal and will not stop until they achieve all their goals.

Take Action
Send the e-mail to your representative urging him or her to vote AGAINST HR 254. It all boils down to who is dedicated to their cause more — homosexual activists or Christians. Right now the homosexual activists are winning.

THey do this in sweden and canada I think. I heard that Pennsylvania has a law like this, but only if someone complains.

So the Bible will be considered worse than " Mein Kampf"? KAARAZEEE!

No, I haven't checked it out on snopes yet, but I did go to the site and there was a direct link to email your senetor, also there is a link in the article to the actual bill.

My pastor has been saying this would happen since I got in the church so I wasn't that surprised to see it. Plus the Bible says that evil seducers will wax worse and worse... I wonder if this would go through how many pastors would start worrying about what they said over the pulpit? People already get mad being told they live in sin.

Don Wildemon did a great work exposing Homos in society, but he can be overbearing at times.

Typical traitors against the kingdom of God (the American Family Association) whining and complaining about what this wicked world is doing in secular societies!

They should be putting their efforts into trying to bring souls into the kingdom of God instead of fighting a "culture war" they have no business fighting.

Congress has been trying to pass this legislation since at least the early 1990s.

We need to stop committing treason against God's kingdom! How do we commit treason against God's kingdom? By treating this wicked world as if it is our home, by giving our allegiance to earthly nations, and by fighting for power and for citizen rights in these nations. Our citizenship is in Heaven, not in earthly nations!
