Typical hate crime laws criminalize the use of force, or the threat of force, against a person because they are a member of a specific, protected group. With that said, how does hate crime legislation stack up?
Four definitions of the term “hate crime” are:
The word “perceived” is important, because many vicious assaults are based in error on the incorrect belief that the victim is Jewish, gay, or a member of some other group that the perpetrator hates.
Traditional hate crime legislation protects persons because of “his race, color, religion or national origin,” as in the case of the 1969 federal hate crimes law. (18 U.S.C. Section 245). Most state laws now include additional protected groups. Some laws are restrictive and only protect a member of a group if she/he is involved in specific activities. For example, the current (1969) federal law only applies if the crime happens when a person is attending a public school or is at work or participating in one of four other “federally protected activities.”

Within the definition of “hate crimes” one can see that the governing forces identify “religion” as a source of hatred. This of course is true to an extent. But when you compare it to that of other reasons of hate, it pales in comparison. For example, notice the following statistics…
Notice something strange about this table…?
|Basis of crime||1995 data||1996 data||1997 data||1998 data||1999 data||2000 data|
|Total hate/bias crimes||7,947||8,759||8,049||9,235||7,876||9,562|
|Ethnicity / National origin||10%||11%||10%||10%||13%||12%|
- “Uniform Crime Reports, FBI, at: http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm
- “Crime in the United States, 2000,” FBI press release, 2001-OCT-22
Did you notice that hate crimes levied against “religion” more or less stayed constant at about 16% from 1995 to 2000? Granted, 16% is no small problem, and I am sure some “biased” calculation may have allowed for a bit of “puffing up” in the totals. Still, 16% is not a big number in either respect when comparing it with racism. Yet, lately we have seen a surge in media attacks as well as hate crime legislation that is geared directly towards religion. Why?
I recall many years ago when I was in charge of the computerization of a Baptist prison ministry. (Early 90’s) During this time it was made known unto ALL preachers that desired to counsel people in prison that they would NOT be allowed to speak out against the Roman Catholic church within prison walls. You could not tell a prisoner who was Catholic that he was in the church of Antichrist, and you could not tell him he had to leave that church or you would have your chaplain ID card pulled, and your ministry in that prison would be stopped immediately.
Looking again at those numbers I see that RACISM is persistently the main issue regarding hate crimes. Now let me ask you this… If you could somehow identify people that preach against your “religion” as ‘racists’, you would be in an ideal position to gain political preeminence would you not? The numbers of hate crimes concerning RACISM are in the upper 50 and lower 60 percentile. If you add RELIGION into the mix, you stand to make racism a VERY powerful and noticable problem, one that is definitely capable of being “lobbied” and USED as a political mainstay for vote gathering.
Think of it, adding 16% to the highest year of racial hate crimes would give you a very lucrative 78% in the “racism” problem. Everyone knows that “religious hate crimes” are not going to get much worse as time goes by simply because only the “confused fanatic” would seek to do harm in the name of their god. The 911 tragedy confirms that fact. Most religions on earth deplore violence. So something is needed to boost the statistics concerning religious hate crimes. Think about it… Would not numerous laws be lobbied to put a stop to such a massive problem as this? A hate crime category that shows such a high number as 78% would most definitely be considered worthy of governmental CONTROL. Would not the media as well as churches be very active in pushing their “idea’s” on how to stop it? And would not every politician that seeks issues that are important enough to harvest votes play on this obvious cash crop no matter how much it is puffed up? And again, would not every entity that favors this agenda use this against any politician that would not look to it as an issue worth addressing? In other words, if you’re a politician that chooses to ignore this issue, you would eventually find you career in jeopardy.
With that said… listen to this…
|FUNDAMENTALISTS WRONG ABOUT BIBLE, VATICAN SAYS
Vatican City (AP)– A new Vatican document on how to interpret the Bible condemns the fundamentalist approach of word-for-word literalism as distorting, dangerous and possibly leading to racism. –Associated Press -March 18, 1994
Common sense is all one needs to see why the Vat of sin in Rome would declare such idiocy. They KNOW that racism is in no way connected with religious beliefs. In fact they of ALL people would know that! Some could say that racism is connected because most Muslims are of middle eastern descent, or most Synagogue attendees are Jewish. But the same argument is moot when speaking of the Roman Catholic church and it’s members. Absolutely every nation on Earth today now has a Catholic church in it. So playing the Racism card here is merely a political tactic that would see Rome as a mainline beneficiary to it.
Even prophecy proves this reality…
- Revelation 17:1, “…Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:”
And what do those “many waters” represent in prophecy?
- Revelation 17:15, “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues…”
Still some misunderstand my connecting the Vatican with this Whore. For those needing to confirm this is prophetically sound, see the facts on my Whore of Babylon page on the site.
This proves beyond a shadow of doubt that the Vatican’s statement regarding “racism” was a bold face lie spoken only to benefit her political agenda. How can one be considered a racist when speaking out against the Roman Church, when that very church contains ALL races known to man within her walls? It’s truly that simple! If a black man speaks out against the Catholic church, the Vatican cry’s RACIST! Yet, many Catholics are black! If a Mexican, or an Indian, or an Italian man speaks out against Catholicism, the church yells RACIST! Yet there are Mexican’s, Indian’s, and Italian’s in that church! The lies are truly that transparent to see! Yet, the laws will be passed and this idiocy will be enforced.
Can you believe it? The Vatican has twisted the Gospel preached by the Children of God Almighty into a DANGEROUS act?! An act they say can actually lead to nothing less than racism? To preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ exactly as Scriptures defines, instead of as Rome defines, is now called racism? This has to be one of the easiest to expose lies to date. STILL, many blinded people will ignore the obvious and grasp the lie they cherish instead. And for those that DO see the lie, there is yet another “ace up the sleeves” of Rome. The Roman Church is never satisfied with just one frontal attack, as we all know from studying history. If the “racism” card doesn’t hold true, the heresy card will do just as well…
|The archbishop of St. Louis said: “Heresy and unbelief are crimes; and in Christian countries, as in Italy and Spain, for instance, where all people are Catholics, and where the catholic religion is an essential part of the law of the land, they are punished as crimes.” … “Every cardinal,archbishop, and bishop in the Catholic Church takes an oath of allegiance to the pope, in which occur the following words” “Heretics, schismatic’s, and rebels to our said lord (the pope), or his aforesaid successors, I will to my utmost persecute and oppose.” [Josiah Strong, “Our Country,” ch. 5, pars 2-4.]|
The Roman Catholic church feels it is her duty to rid those that speak out against her BY FORCE. And what is always a good way to get such force legalized? You need to get the media pumping all sorts of “antiChristian” lies so as to make the Roman Catholic agenda become appealing to the lawmakers of the land. Rest assured, there WILL be religious laws in the United States a LOT sooner than you think! Why else would the following articles be flooding the media?
|Christians accused of inciting hatred
A MELBOURNE Christian group has been accused of vilifying Muslims in what could be a test case for Victoria’s controversial new race and religious hate laws.
The Islamic Council of Victoria claims the fundamentalist Catch The Fire Ministries, incited hatred against the Islamic faith during a Koran study conference held in Surrey Hills in March.
Acting on behalf of two Muslim men and a Muslim woman who attended the conference, the Islamic Council has lodged a complaint with the Victorian Equal Opportunity Commission against Catch The Fire Ministries and two of its leaders.
…Mr Cleland said the three Muslims who attended the conference were shocked and disturbed by what they heard. “They felt scared for their own physical safety, because of the hatred being incited there,” Mr Cleland said. “We would not like normal Christians to be associated with these people.” -By DANNY BUTTLER 28may 2002 -Herald Sun
Race & Religious hate laws? What the Vatican suggests seems to have already been accepted by some. In fact, Australia has had them on the books for years. I recall when I first placed the “Presents of God ministry” website online. A small town near me had placed an ISP in the library of their school. The site only had a small amount of data on it because it just started out. (perhaps 200 or 300 pages) Suddenly, and completely out of the blue, my ISP was contacted by 3 Roman Catholic Lawyers from Australia telling them to shut my site down immediately. The ISP contacted me and told me they would have a town meeting about it that week. I assured them I had no interest in attending the meeting, but I also told them that if they decided to go along with the wishes of those Roman Catholic lawyers and shut me down, they would then have major legal ramifications to contend with pertaining to my 1st Amendment rights as a U.S. Citizen. Needless to say, they did not shut me down. However, a few months later, the Almighty “revealed” to me in prayer that it was time to seek out another ISP as soon as possible. I uploaded the site to the new location almost immediately. I never deleted the old site however because many were still using it and linking to it. Not two weeks later the original ISP I was using from the Library was conveniently hacked. They were hacked in such a way that literally forced them to be shut down. The international hacker generated a massive phone bill on their end by “ghosting” the ISP as their telephone line and generated a $30,000.00+ phone bill. That small town couldn’t handle that at all. The FBI actually came to town to confiscate the hard drives so as to investigate the hacker. Then, 2 or 3 days later my new ISP was hacked in the same manner. Difference was, this ISP actually has competent hackers working there that are very knowledgeable in security matters. Needless to say, their security measures stopped the hacker before he was able to do what he did in my previous ISP. Still, the FBI had to confiscate the hard drives so as to better investigate the hacker. What happened to them? I have no clue, nor do I have any desire to know what happened.
Is this related to the Catholic lawyers from Australia? Again, no clue… but it does seem rather suspicious to say the least. BOTH ISP’s hacked by the same method within days of each other? All that matters to me is that I do know who was behind the whole thing and why. Satan was involved in both instances for obvious reasons, only a fool would ignore that reality. The dog doesn’t bark unless you annoy him.
Not long after that, I received the now infamous 6 MILLION DOLLAR OFFER to shut presents of God ministry down to take up a different calling ‘they’ said was from God. You can view the facts regarding this 6 million dollar offer in my May 23, 1999 Truth Provided Newsletter.
So.. how far will the Papacy and it’s puppets in the media and political realm go to quench the Christian?
|World Council of Churches Prepares Briefing for U.N.
Reducing or eliminating racism requires people to change their hearts and see the
“image of God” in people different from themselves, said World Council of Churches
(WCC) Central Committee member Naboth M. Muchopa of Zimbabwe, connexial secretary for racial justice, Methodist Church in Great Britain, at a Feb. 2 press briefing. The goal of anti-racism efforts should be to help all people recognize there is “one human race,” he added.
The briefing was related to the upcoming United Nations World Conference Against
In preparation, the WCC has submitted a series of suggestions to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, for consideration. It has also scheduled a number of consultations on racism, as has the U.N., leading up to the international conference.
Churches have been at the forefront of fighting racism in Europe, but are not without their own racism issues, according to Muchopa. “Europe has accepted racism not only as a problem in society. It is a problem in our churches … Racism has to do with prejudice, supported by power,” Muchopa said. (WCC — http://news.christiansunite.com)
It appears they will even entice United Nations via the World Council of Churches to get their desires made known. Is it any wonder the Pope was elected leader of the One World Church? Not only is he the leader of that prophesied church of Antichrist, he is also the one and ONLY “religious” representative at the UN. This allows for much easier access to the “movers and shakers” of this world that allow for his agenda to be made into law. ESPECIALLY since the pope is now the leader of the U.R. (United Religions) as of June 26, 2000. This indeed is a powerful global voice that can, and will sway the political arena into enacting all the laws necessary to enforce the mark of the Roman Catholic beast. Prophetic fact is, prophecy DID say “…the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. “-Revelation 13,15
SPEAK = LEGISLATE
CAUSE = LAWS
I wonder… will the antiChristian people of this world go so far as to try and declare the Bible itself a source of hatred so as to better fuel the fires of persecution being aimed at the true Bible believer?
|Activist makes headway in quest to make Christian bible ‘hate-free’
— Irvin Borowsky now sees some light at the end of the tunnel in his 18-year campaign to modify New Testament language “excessively faulting all Jews for the suffering and execution of Jesus.”
…His goals included modifying the King James version of the Bible in favor of hate-free“ texts, making the same inroads with the sources of the children’s Bibles, urging hotels to replace millions of Bibles with more acceptable versions and eventually impacting on sermons discussing Jesus’ life and death.
…Only the American Bible Society among 20 major publishers has been cooperative until now, but a number of children’s Bible publishers have been quicker to make recommended changes, Borowsky reports.
“I see major breakthroughs coming within the next five years,” Borowsky says, reminding that the “hateful anti-Judiac passages” he contests have been circulating for nearly 20 centuries.
“History will record that the scholars and the president of the American Bible Society who published the first Bible that contained no anti-Judaism in nearly 2,000 years were the first to record accurately the historical events of the first century,” he concluded. -Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc By Milton Gralla
Before you know it, the Bible some hold in their hands will be used to “prove” true Christians are hatemongers. What amazes me is that the Jews mentioned in Scripture are also playing the parts of the good guys! Jesus was a Jew, as were ALL of His Apostles. In fact, all those that believed in Jesus and did not yell crucify Him were also Jewish people! Why is it everyone only concentrates on the Jews that did wrong? Because Satan will do all he can to make the Truth appear evil. Take for example what’s happening in Canada right now. Bills have been passed back in September of 2003 that will cause Christians to be jailed up to 5 years, for using a Bible to preach their “hate” to Homosexuals. (To see the proof just click here.)
This kind of reminds me of an article I saw a few years ago where Roman Catholic Cardinal Bernardin more or less attempted to use the same tactic. He didn’t actually seek laws to outlaw preaching to Jews regarding their sin in rejecting Christ, but he did suggest a re-write of the Bible to try and prevent the Truth in this matter from being proclaimed. In other words, this ANT-HATE movement that is attacking the Word of God was first mentioned via the halls of ROME! And here’s your proof…
|“Bernardin and the Jews”
Cardinal Bernardin’s (Catholic) lecture at Hebrew University: RE: Statements on the verse, John 8:44 Bernardin remarks: “These statements can no longer be taught as authentic doctrine or used as catechesis by contemporary Christianity and can no longer be regarded as definitive teaching. Christians no longer may believe that the words that the Jews are the children of the devil are words Jesus actually said or are the revealed word of God.” Sunday April 9 1995 Daily Southtown Opinion section p.1 / Article By ~ANDREW M. GREELEY
As you can see, the Roman Catholic church has always been at the forefront of evils such as this. They make a statement, then the media picks up on it, it’s paraded before the eyes of billions, then the politicians get wind of it, and before you know it, it’s DONE! Truth is, Jesus was NOT “singling out” Jews as being the only evil in the Scriptures at all! In fact, HE DIRECTED HIS MINISTRY TO PREACHING ONLY TO THE JEWS the entire 3.5 years He was walking on the Earth. Then after He died, resurrected, and ascended, His Apostles also concentrated their efforts preaching ONLY TO JEWS for the next 3.5 years! (BTW.. That constitutes the “week of Daniel” so many preachers like to say is a “7 year trib“) It wasn’t until the Jews stoned Stephan did the prophecy see fulfillment, and the message was now to be preached to the Gentiles. (See prophecy of Hosea 2:23 and then fulfillment in Acts 13:46) But seeing how the Antichrist wants the “hate agenda” to gain speed, he has all along made it a “Jewish problem” so as to generate what we see today.
Common sense affords the person the reality of these facts. ONLY Jews are being ministered too. So one would understand that only Jews would deny it as well. Still, NOT ALL the Jews denied it. It was only the haters of TRUTH that placed Christ on that cross, and it is still the Pharisidical haters of truth that push for hate laws and re-written Bibles in today’s world. And when you hear of those being baptized and saved in the Gospels, WHO do you suppose these people are? Since the Lord is concentrating His efforts towards the Jewish nation, one could easily understand it would most likely be the Jewish people ACCEPTING Jesus Christ first! When placing the TRUTH in the LIGHT of day, one can understand why the Jew is hated eh? It was from the house of David the Messiah arrived! And Antichrist HATES Messiah! And since the Jews FIRST embraced Him and allowed for His Gospel to be proclaimed, Satan has focused His attack on the Jew!
The Christian Bible identifies the evils of this World. The History books confirm the prophetic facts as well. The evil ones do NOT like being brought into the “Light of Truth” so they prefer to CENSOR Truth as best they can. The Catholic church BURNED Bibles in the dark ages as well as put the Bible on the index of forbidden books in the Council of Valenica in 1229ad. And now we see the Jewish nation seeking a “censored” Bible as well. All the world truly DOES wonder after this beast! Still… will they attempt to stop even every day run of the mill Christians from speaking of Jesus in public? Do you think it will ever get that bad?
|WHO DECLARED OPEN SEASON ON PUBLIC RELIGIOUS SPEECH?
…I find the current hostility to religious evangelism profoundly disturbing. This includes attacks on the missionary activities of the much-maligned Southern Baptists. According to The Seattle Times (“Baptists’ high chutzpah,” editorial, Sept. 11), which condemned Baptist efforts to convert Jews, “The Baptists should learn to respect the values and privacy of others.” A group of religious leaders in Chicago has gone further, recently urging Southern Baptists to cancel plans to send missionaries into their city this coming summer because seeking to convert others “could contribute to a climate conducive to hate crimes.” Missionary activity a hate crime? Apparently yes, according to the new, politically correct view of religious liberty being offered up by guardians of a completely secular public arena. -By John G. West Jr. is an associate professor of political science at Seattle Pacific University and a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute. Copyright © 2000 The Seattle Times Company -Jan 25, 2000
Wow! Can you imagine? Sharing ones faith with another is now seen as an act that “could contribute to a climate conducive to hate crimes.” Is this a surprise people? Were we not prophetically warned of such a thing long ago? Fact is, it’s always been the same old story hasn’t it? Just as all the prophets of old and Jesus as well as the early Church had to deal with hatred such as this, apparently so shall we. Can you see how the devil is twisting the Truth here? We do what we do in Love. We share Biblical facts unto all we meet in Love. We warn as many as we can of eternal danger out of Love for them. Yet, somehow WE are the ones that shall be tagged hatemonger’s.
- 1 Peter 3:16, “Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.”
It amazes me how every fabric of society is being broad-sided by this Roman Catholic initiated hate crime agenda. And I mean EVERY fabric of society. Your not even safe on a bus!

Soon it WILL be considered a crime to speak the name of Jesus Christ as He is described or portrayed in Scripture. Sure, you can speak of the “Catholic” Jesus, but don’t dare speak of the TRUE Jesus Christ in Scripture because that may “be conducive to hate crimes” right?
I recall when I did my very first funeral. I was outright threatened during the services while on the pulpit by the son of the deceased in the back of the chapel because I refused to preach the dead man into Heaven. I saw an awesome opportunity to share the REAL Jesus and His plan for salvation to the those grieving the passing of their loved one who died in a drunken stupor. I tried to share with them in as loving a way as possible that I could not say whether this man was headed for Heaven or Hell. I am not his judge, and therefore refuse to pray him into Heaven like so many others will do. I could not justify lying to them at such a vulnerable time in their lives. As for the threatening comments coming from the back of the chapel, the Lord did protect me from danger, however, this next preacher didn’t fair as well…
|Pastor Beaten After Blunt Eulogy
Reverend Calls Deceased ‘Drunkard And A Fornicator’
— Authorities in Loxley, Ala., are investigating the alleged beating of a preacher by funeral mourners who didn’t like his blunt eulogy. Glynis Bethel told The Associated Press that her husband — the Rev. Orlando Bethel — was attacked during a June 14 funeral and dragged out of the church. That’s because Bethel told mourners the deceased was in Hell and that they were headed the same way. The dead man was Glynis Bethel’s uncle. Orlando Bethel referred to him as a “drunkard and a fornicator.” Glynis Bethel, who’s also a preacher, says “the fornicators didn’t like what he said so they got up and beat him.” She says police didn’t make any arrests, so she and her husband — who may have a broken nose — are taking out warrants. –The Associated Press. Posted: 10:14 p.m. EDT June 21, 2002
Now I don’t agree 100% of how this minister handled this situation, but I do feel for this preacher because the same thing “almost” happened to me. The man that was threatening me at my first funeral was drinking at the time, and very obviously a drunk. As for what the beaten preacher said in that article. I don’t agree with him. I do agree those people were headed for hell. But how does he know that man in the casket IS hell bound unless he saw him first hand die in his sins? Yes, we can know them by their fruits, but I also understand “thief on the cross” theology. In other words… “what if” something happened that this preacher was unaware of? That’s why I didn’t say either way concerning the man that died in a drunken stupor at that funeral. I truly didn’t know what occurred in his last moments of life.
Hatred of the Truth is a major reality in today’s world. I see it in the Newsgroups, email, audio chats, and on the street. Truth is NOT a very popular message in these last days. Still, it is not something that can be quenched. They couldn’t stop the Apostles, and they couldn’t even stop the Christians after them. Even if they burn them at the stake! Truth continued! Boiled them in oil! Truth stood firm! Buried them alive! Truth was still proclaimed! Truth bearers were also cut in half, hung from trees, skinned alive or poisoned. I can’t even list all the ways the Roman Catholic church killed those that stood for Truth! If you read the Foxes book of Martyrs you will get an idea. By the way, that book shares historic evidence that the Vatican killed over 500 MILLION Christians!
For those Catholics that deny this, are you aware of the Mea Culpa of Pope John Paul II on March 12, 2000? He admitted the church did in fact kill many millions of Christians because they refused to join their Church. Every media outlet recorded all the statements of that day. And for those that think this will never happen again, were you aware the Vatican re-instituted the Office of Inquisition in 1991?
|HOLY OFFICE STILL EXISTS
The thought of a revived Holy Office of the Inquisition would pacify some and offend others. Nevertheless, the “Holy Office” still exists. Only it’s name has been changed. Pope John Paul II has been instrumental in its revival.
One may argue that this Ratzinger run agency is merely an attempt by the Catholic Church to root out communism or backslidden priests and their practices. However, with John Paul II’s objective to implement “God’s mandate” by creating a global church-state which will administer from traditional Roman Catholic theology, is enough cause for alarm. Malachi Martin has already stated in his book, “The Keys of this Blood,” that the pope will not tolerate any belief systems that oppose his, not on a civil or church level. In John Paul II the world will behold a tyrant who will coldly execute direct orders against those whom he deems are heretics or immoral. Moreover, like his papal predecessors, John Paul II will carry out his “Godly mandate” in the name of Christ, or perhaps Mary. May God help us all. -Pope John Paul II Revives Inquisition By Kathleen R. Hayes Feb 1991, NRI Trumpet Page 3
Nevertheless, my friends, the Lord Jesus Christ STILL has His faithful Truth bearers proclaiming His wonderful and eternal Heavenly Truths for ALL to hear! It will never end.
So… since torture itself won’t shut Christians up. Do you think the Governments will have to come up with other ways to try and control them? Don’t get me wrong, the torture will never stop. Nor will the martyrdoms, UNTIL the plagues begin to fall and probation is closed on ALL the world.
Sad fact is, some “Christians” are weak and unable to trust the Lord Jesus when the threat of torture, or death stands before them. Rest assured, I believe that ALL those that cower in fear will be swayed by thinking… “What good can come of my death? I can better glorify the Lord alive.” So, they will accept the “mark of the beast” without knowing it, and perish, thinking they are better able to serve the Lord alive. But what of the rest? They need to be controlled do they not? They need to be “rounded up” and dealt with because they WON’T compromise. I wonder… do you think they will start asking for religious ID cards? We already know the “National ID” card is inevitable. But what of religious ID’s?
|RELIGIOUS ID CARDS!
A visiting delegation from the American Jewish Committee met last Friday with Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis and other governmental and church officials in Athens. Discussions were aimed at “enhancing Israel’s relations with Greece,” which have “room for growth,” said the AJ Committee’s executive director, David Harris. Some of the talks focused on getting Athens to change a law that requires people to list their religion on their ID card.
[Datline Israel Editors comment: Does the listing of religion on ID cards sound familiar? Pre-Holocaust activities under any other name are still anti-Semitic!] -Weekend News Today By Andra Brack Source: Dateline Israel Tue Mar 16 , 1999
Is this no different than the STAR placed upon the clothing of the Jew by Hitler? What will this lead to? Well, picture this… A national ID is issued. They will ask you the normal questions of course that already infringe upon your privacy. But now, thanks to the media hype that uses the 911 tragedy to their advantage, they will ask for your religious denomination as well. What do you suppose will be the reasoning behind all this? TERRORISM PREVENTION no doubt. It will also allow for a better demographic view of each and every citizen in the USA as well as any other countries. Rest assured, not only does the government plan on taking advantage of that valuable information for both public and private use, but politicians can better fine tune their ATTACK on you by pulling on the pre-defined heartstrings you have displayed in your ID cards so as to better cultivate your vote.
Fact is, there are a LOT of reasons for hate crime legislation that afford ONLY the governments of this world even more control. However, when you look at the one and only entity on Planet Earth that stands to gain the highest benefits in all this, one can assuredly see why the Vat of sin in Rome is so hopped up on getting these laws passed. They have done it in other countries successfully. They even have the laws of the land fashioned after the dogmatic statements of Rome in Europe. In fact, do some “modern day” historic research on the events of Europe. Notice how the Vatican prompted each and every aspect of “certain laws” to be passed so as to make Europe the living example that a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT can work in today’s society. And were you also aware that the USA Government now has certain stipulations placed within the requirements of a 501C3 tax free status? On my Roman Catholic IRS page you will see rock hard evidence that states, if you want your church, or charitable organization to have tax-free status, (which by the way is a trap) then you must embrace Roman Catholic dogma.
They may be able to shut the mouths of a “few” weaker Christians like Jack VanImpe or Billy Graham by declaring their ministries will be shut down if they don’t retract previous statements made concerning the papacy in Rome. BOTH these men, when they started out, were avid exposers of the Roman Antichrist. Now? Both are avid supporters of Roman Catholicism. But the true child of God who stands for the Eternal Word of God, they don’t have a chance! The laws are slowly but surely making sure our rights are completely removed. But… will this work?
- Acts 5:28, “Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.”
They tried to stop people from preaching about Jesus before, and the true child of God will respond as he has in the past…
- Acts 5:29, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.“
And because they see their threats are useless against us, they will change their strategy by declaring we preach “heresy” and it is “conducive to hate crimes!” Many more weak Christians will agree with them because they don’t know any better, and soon we will stand (as many already are today) all alone with Jesus. Yet we must echo the words of those who went through it before us…
- Acts 24:14, “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:”
And by the way… When I said that EVERY fabric of society will be targeted by the Anti-Christian’s of this world. I meant it, look at this next ridiculous article… ( Try not to laugh now! 🙂
|Christianity Harmful to Animals, Says Animal Rights Godfather
Princeton University Professor Peter Singer, dubbed the ‘godfather’ of animal rights, says Christianity is a “problem” for the animal rights movement.
Singer, author of the book “Animal Liberation” and a professor of bioethics at Princeton University’s Center for Human Values, criticized American Christianity for its fundamentalist strain that takes the Bible too “literally” and promotes “speciesism.” He defined speciesism as the belief that being a member of a certain species “makes you superior to any other being that is not a member of that species.” -By Marc Morano CNSNews.com Senior Staff Writer July 01, 2002 (CNSNews.com)
This is not only ridiculous, but it appears rather comical as well. I must say I had to chuckle when I read this article. You have GOT to be kidding me I thought! Nope… it appears this guy is serious. Sad thing is, the lily livered, weak kneed, cowardly Christians in places of influence will eventually go along with this crazed idea, just as they did for abortion and any other insane claims of the Christian haters. And they will do all this irregardless of the fact that it IS written in the Creator’s Word that we do have dominion over the animals.
- Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
The Atheist is actually proclaiming their belief in God by this ridiculous claim that we shouldn’t “rule” over the animals of this world. The key here is the fact that the Almighty MADE MAN IN HIS IMAGE and the Atheist hates ANY representation whatsoever of the Almighty, even if it means His mere IMAGE!
What is the Roman catholic church seeking in all this? What is there agenda? Prophecy said the beast that killed more than 500 million Christians during it’s FIRST reign of terror (538ad to 1798ad) would have it’s mortal wound healed did it not? And what you saw in the past will be seen very soon, for prophecy does NOT lie!
Keep in mind people. Those of us that embrace Bible doctrine as Truth are considered heretics by the leader of the One World Court in Rome. The Pope used that descriptive term for us in his March 12, 2000 Mea Culpa address to the entire world. We are considered “racists, bigots, hatemonger’s, and dangerous” by the very court that is controlled by Rome. And we are considered prison worthy for committing what they define as “hate crimes” in their books. Many of us will indeed be thrown into prison for simply proclaiming our Jesus to those in desperate need of His salvation. Are you ready for what is DEFINITELY about to happen?
One last note…
If they can’t move you with torture. If they can’t force you to deny Christ with death. If they can stop you from preaching with laws. What will they try next? Your pocket book perhaps?
|Pastor Fined $1,000 for Rebuking Lewd Woman
Yesterday in Dane County Circuit Court, Judge Paul Higginbotham fined Pastor Ralph Ovadal $1,000 for rebuking a lewd-acting woman on the parking lot of the state-run Mazomanie nude beach and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to her. The Judge also added court costs to the fine. Pastor Ovadal’s “victim,” Nancy J. Erickson, had asked the court to fine Pastor Ovadal the maximum possible ($1,000), put him in jail for 90 days, and then on probation. The Judge declined the probation, saying it would be too expensive to the State and would no doubt do nothing to change Pastor Ovadal’s behavior anyway. Both the D.A. and the Judge stated that they had considered putting Pastor Ovadal in jail, but they are afraid it would make him a “martyr.”
During the sentencing hearing Judge Higginbotham gave a long dissertation on his religious beliefs and stated to Pastor Ovadal, “I think you and I have different thoughts on what is preaching….Yes, I called your conduct cruel, savage, truculent…it wasn’t preaching.” -Religion Today News Summaries Friday, May 31, 2002
Granted, I am not familiar with Dane County and it’s WISCONSIN STATE RUN nude beaches. But I do know that “parking lots” are NOT nude beaches. So the argument that “this was a nude beach” the preacher was preaching at is moot. Still, some would question the preachers decision to go to the parking lot to preach. Is it no different than going to an abortion clinic, or a movie theater to preach to those going in to sin? You don’t go “IN” the clinic, or the movie theater to preach right? Nor would you go “ON” the nude beach to preach. It is best to go to the parking lot outside the view of the bold and obvious “nude” sinners.
Plus, the Judge said the Pastor’s methods were, “cruel, savage, and truculent” (truculent = hostile) I wonder, would this judge say the same thing about Jesus when He used a small whip of cords in the Temple? Or when He called the Pharisee’s liars, and of their father the devil? Or called the Pharisee’s hypocrites? Yes, it appears he would.
I have no doubt in my mind what the “lewd acting woman” did. Her being a nudist, I can surely imagine what transpired after the preacher tried to share the Gospel of Jesus with her and alert her of her eternal dangers. Think about this. She does a “lewd act” in response to his message, and then the preacher does a “holy act” by rebuking her for it. And the Christian is the one FINED!?
Kinda reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw on a young girls car many years back when I was a teenager. Wisconsin was looking for a way to beef up tourism. Everywhere you looked were bumper stickers that said, “Escape to Wisconsin” on them. Commercials on radio and TV in the Chicago area were all about the advantages to visiting Wisconsin. This young girl I saw “altered” the bumper sticker to make it clear to everyone why she preferred Wisconsin. She cut the bumper sticker in such a way that it removed most of the name “Wisconsin” She took the letters, “Wiscon” off the sticker, and re-set the sticker perfectly so it would read… “Escape to sin.” Makes much more sense that way doesn’t it? Whatever beefs up the tourism bux eh?
The Agape Press comment under this article, summed up the preceding article rather plainly that I believe says it all in a nutshell!
|(London AP) In a face-off over Britain’s blasphemy laws, sidewalk preachers shouted Bible verses to drown out free-speech activists who read a homo-erotic poem about Jesus Christ on the steps of a London church. The 17th-century laws — which ban outrageous or indecent attacks on Christianity — are under review by the House of Lords, which may recommend abolishing them or extending them to protect other religions. Although blasphemy laws are rarely enforced, the activists said they were risking prosecution by reciting the poem, which imagines a Roman centurion taking liberties with the body of Jesus after he was removed from the cross.
A London minister who objected to the reading said that in a time when it is wrong to utter a racial slur, “It seems the only person you’re allowed to insult in this land is Christ.” -Agape Press Monday, July 15, 2002
