National Television Campaign Launched to Expose Danger

WASHINGTON, April 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Tuesday at the terrace of the Cannon House Office Building, Faith2Action began a national television campaign to fight so-called "hate crimes" (H.R. 1592)—legislation which has already sent grandmas to jail at the state level for the "crime" of sharing the Gospel on a Philadelphia public sidewalk. The announcement came as part of a press conference led by the Traditional Values Coalition, a linking partner of Faith2Action.
"This is the most dangerous bill in America," declares Faith2Action President, Janet Folger, host of a live, daily, nationally syndicated radio program, and writer of a weekly column for WorldNetDaily.
On Tuesday, the U.S. House began hearings on the bill that would expand the definition of hate crimes to include "thought crimes" against the homosexual agenda. "HR1592 is about hate – hating free speech, hating equal justice, and hating grandma", said Folger.
Faith2Action began running ads Tuesday, April 17th, featuring Philadelphia grandmothers who were thrown in jail for simply sharing their faith. They were accused of violating Pennsylvania's "hate crimes" law and faced the possibility of 47 years in prison. (The ads can also be seen on the internet at www.StopHateCrimesNow.com) They are scheduled to run on FOX news nationally and in the D.C. Market.
"We must stop it," Folger states, "before they send your grandma, your pastor, or you to jail for sharing your faith or speaking the truth about an agenda that seeks to silence us."

Janet Folger is available for interviews this week and can be reached through Wanda Sanchez at 209.534.0335.
