Message to pastors and other Christians: Just keep your mouth shut

If pastors and other Christians don’t aggressively oppose a bill now in Congress, in the near future they will be subject to huge fines and prison terms if they say anything negative about homosexuality.

The proposed law would make it a crime to preach on Romans Chapter 1 or I Corinthians Chapter 6. Or even to discuss them in a Sunday School class. If churches and individuals want to keep the government from telling them what they can and cannot preach and teach about homosexuality, they better get involved now!
House bill H.R. 1592 and Senate bill S. 1105 would make negative statements concerning homosexuality, such as calling the practice of homosexuality a sin from the pulpit, a “hate crime†punishable by law. This dangerous legislation would take away your freedom of speech and your freedom of religion. Consider what has already happened:
  • A California lawsuit which is headed to the U.S. Supreme Court would make the use of the words “natural family,†“marriage†and “union of a man and a woman†a “hate speech†crime in government workplaces. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has already ruled in favor of the plaintiffs!

  • CNN and The Washington Post both reported that General Peter Pace, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was fired because he publicly expressed moral opposition to homosexual behavior.

Sign the Petition to Congress Today
That is an outrage!

Wow. Thank you, Jeff, for that info. I had no idea that this was going on! The first thing I did after I saw your post was to sign that petition, and I would encourage enyone else who believes in the sanctity of marriage and of family according to the bible to do the same.
This has already happened in other countries and this is not the first attempt here- thank God we can still speak the truth in love- just go to Canada and try witnessing of preaching to homosexuals you will be locked up.
Political Content

More 'liberal' agenda at work supressing rights as GUARANTEED in the US Constitution - Anyone remember the text of the FIRST AMMENDMENT?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances"

The liberals have attempted to undermine the foundation of the US Constitution with their agenda for over 200 years. This is just one more example of just how dangerous liberalism is to the framework of the United States. Be on guard - they are after YOU and YOUR RIGHTS!

Religion and politics go hand in hand. Sociologists will tell you that liberalism is equated with evil and the doctrines of Satan... including abortion rights, the removel of God from public venues and the above mentioned action to surpress the Godly doctrines of The Bible. Liberals are all for killing unborn humans as a convenience to end the pregnancy created by their uncaring party lifestyle and at the same time, they scream about the war in Iraq and the deaths involving US military. Where are these people regarding the 53,000 deaths each year on US roads - a majority of which are caused by IMPARED drivers? You won't hear them at all complaining about THOSE deaths because to do so would limit their own alcohol and drug use.

Conservatism is equated with Christian and general religious values and the genuine goodness that those values bring.

It is theoretically impossible for a liberal to be a Christian... Some THINK that they can have it both ways, but that is just not the case.

One of the better commentaries which sums up the agenda of the liberal, socialist left can be found here:

This is pretty scary.
I believe it is scriptual, all that is taking, place as in Matthew 24.
banning Gods word,its like banning the grass to stop growing.never happen.i feel sorry for homosexuals,they have been guided that way by society.all homosexual songs sing to God.trick from evil like but some good music is from them.
SM, I understand what you are saying.
Of course the enemy will make sin and evil appealing.
Some Christians argue that statement though.
It is hard to admit we are weak, as humans.
If we were never tempted we would never grow stronger in Christ.
you can never grow strong unless you realise what evil you are dealing with and can never grow because you get entwinned.
This legislation is a complete abomination in the sight of the Lord, and all who support it are blasphemers and traitors. EVERY nation which embraces the sodomite is kindling the wrath of God.

America worships the sodomite, and for this reason we are DOOMED. :(
your the last country .evil is corrupting you now.funny how jesus said i will take you from the man/woman at the side of you.we are all split up everywhere and brothers.
