WASHINGTON, May 13 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Monday, May 18th, 9AM to 4PM, Christian leaders from across the nation will speak against the Senate "Hate Crimes" bill (S.909) at our nation's Capital, Supreme Court and White House.
Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, Director of Elijah Ministries states, "Homosexuals came out of the closet and are using the coercive force of civil government to force Christianity into one. America will learn the hard way that you cannot make straight what God has called crooked or tolerate what God deems intolerable or turn moral wrongs into civil rights and thrive as a people. S.909 promotes governmental hatred towards God, saving faith, family, and freedom and makes the church of Jesus Christ guilty as heaven and sexual deviants innocent as hell!"
"The decriminalization of child-killing (abortion) brought about the criminalization of those who would oppose it and the decriminalization of homosexuality brought about the criminalization of those who would oppose it. Now we have the S.909 bill, which expressly forbids any language that might be perceived as 'hate' by the homosexual community. If we do not act decisively at this time, S.909 will make illegal every word in the Bible describing the destruction wrought by this vile behavior, and prepare the way for total censorship of the Gospel of Christ. Our children will pay a horrible price for our cowardice." Rev. Flip Benham, National Director, Operation Rescue/Operation Save America
Repent America Director, Michael Marcavage, states, "Such legislation is completely unnecessary, unconstitutional and ungodly. The federal 'hate crimes' bill will do nothing more than frame mischief by a law, ushering in the persecution of Christians nationwide. The bill seeks to shut down the message of hope and freedom from homosexuality through Jesus Christ by criminalizing Christians who reach out in the love of God to those trapped in its bondage."
"American values are under attack by al-Qaeda and radical Islamists. Instead of combating this issue, it seems some within our government are more interested in criminalizing American citizens. The so-called 'Hate Crimes' bill is an attempt to take away the rights of Christians to speak out and express their freedom of speech."
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND.
