A number of Roman Catholic dioceses nationwide—and also globally—have been consecrating themselves to the “immaculate heart of Mary” throughout 2017, a practice that evangelicals say is unbiblical and gives to the earthly mother of Jesus the devotion that should be bestowed to Christ alone.
“We are uniting ourselves to her who opens up the way for God to enter, and we are uniting our hearts to her immaculate heart, the one heart that is perfectly united to the Sacred Heart of Jesus,” James Johnston Jr. of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri told the National Catholic Register.
The consecrations are being conducted as 2017 marks the 100th year since the purported 1917 apparitions of Mary to child shepherds in Fatima, Portugal. The apparitions were stated to have taken place on the 13th of each month over a six-month period.
“God desires to establish in the world devotion to my immaculate heart,” Mary was quoted as stating during one of the appearances to the children. “To whomever embraces this devotion I promise salvation; these souls shall be dear to God, as flowers placed by me to adorn His throne.”

Dioceses in Pennsylvania, California, Mississippi, Rhode Island, Colorado, New York and other states have already conducted consecration ceremonies, with more to follow for the remainder of the year.
“This is one way we can ask Mary to guide us and watch over us during implementation [of the Priorities],” Mary Woodward, chancellor for the Diocese of Jackson, Mississippi told the outlet Mississippi Catholic.
They conducted their consecration on Sunday, Oct. 8.

The Diocese of Santa Rosa, California announced in a recent letter that it plans to dedicate every parish and mission under its jurisdiction to Mary during services on Dec. 9 and 10 between the Catholic feasts of the Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Guadalupe.
It also provided notice that those interested can participate in an online Marian Consecration Preparation Program.
“In our consecration we state, ‘We consecrate to you (Mary) our very being and our whole life; all that we have, all that we love, all that we are,'” the notice, issued by Robert Vasa, outlines.
“It is an act of trust in the love God has for us and in the love our blessed mother has for us,” it continues. “We entrust ourselves to Her maternal care with profound confidence and love. We trust that, having given over everything we have and are to Her protection and even Her dominion, we then rely on Her to distribute merits and graces where they are most needed.”
On Oct. 13, the date of the last of the Fatima apparitions, Donald Wuerl, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Washington, plans to consecrate the entire United States to Mary at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
“Many people are worried about the state of the world,” Connie Schneider of Children of the Eucharist told reporters. “This is something everyone can participate in; to light a candle and to entrust families, our country and the world to the care of Our Lady of Fatima.”
Schneider’s organization, as well as the group Missionaries of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, are the main sponsors of the event. The candlelight rosary procession and entrustment prayer will be broadcast live on EWTN to over 140 countries. According to the National Catholic Register, EWTN is also airing a new film this week entitled “Queen of Heaven: Mary’s Battle for Souls” to coincide with the Oct. 13 observance.
Diocese in Denver, Colorado; Minneapolis, Minnesota and Phoenix, Arizona will also hold ceremonies on that date.
However, while Roman Catholics have expressed an excitement about the consecrations, opining that they are a work of God in the world, others find the observances concerning as they attribute to Mary the devotion and surrender that only belongs to Christ.
“It is not surprising to see many Catholic dioceses across America falling deeper into apostasy,” Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries told Christian News Network. “Part of Rome’s apostasy includes their exaltation of Mary as the ’cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race’ (Catechism of the Catholic church paragraph 494). Catholics look to her as another sinless mediator who brings them ‘the gifts of eternal salvation’ (CCC, para 969).”
“It is no wonder that far more Catholic Churches are named after Mary than the Name above all names,” he lamented.
Gendron said that some of the comments made by Roman Catholic bishops in regard to the entrustment ceremonies, such as those of Robert Vasa, wrongfully suggest that Mary has powers and attributes just like the Godhead.
“To suggest that she has supernatural or divine power to protect people within her dominion and also to be the source of divine grace is blasphemy,” he declared. “Many people are unaware of Roman Catholicism’s treasury of merit, which contain the merits of Mary that are co-mingled with the inexhaustible merits of Christ (CCC. para. 1477). The Catholic bishops teach that these merits can be distributed to souls suffering in purgatory through indulgences.”
Gendron, a former Roman Catholic of 30 years, says that his heart breaks in observing many being deceived by such practices.
“The tragedy in all this is that Catholics are led astray from a pure devotion to Christ (2 Cor. 11:3),” he stated. “Not only are they being deceived by another Jesus which always leads to another gospel, they are also being deceived by another Mary (2 Cor. 11:4).”
“My heart is full of compassion for Catholics who are where I was for over half my life: believing I belonged to the one true Church, but destined for an eternity in hell because I believed Rome’s false and fatal gospel,” Gendron continued.
“This is the very nature of deception! People do not know they are deceived until they are lovingly confronted with the truth. This truth has been entrusted to every born again Christian and we need to challenge Catholics in their unbelief,” he exhorted. “Their only hope is repent and trust Christ alone for the salvation of their souls.”

The 10 Commandments of the IFB

  1. Though shalt have no other gods before me or make into thee any graven image – however though mayest hold in high esteem and worship the Independent Fundamental Baptist church and doctrine, and the KJV, and the pastor, oh and missionaries (but only IFB supported missionaries), oh and the mental image of that perfect IFBer who is sinless.
  2. Though shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain – though mayest not even use “gosh” or “cheese and crackers” because they too closely resemble their vain counter parts.
  3. Remember to keep the Sabbath day holy by going to church Sunday morning Sunday school, Sunday morning service, Sunday evening service, Wednesday night prayer meeting, Thursday evangelism outreach and Saturday morning door to door witnessing. On Sundays though must not do any work on the sabbath day but must sit on the couch and watch football or nap (if you are a man) or cook, clean and care for the children (if you are a lady).
  4. Honor thy father and thy mother – even if they don’t adopt our authoritarian parenting methods including spanking.
  5. Though shalt not murder – physically. Character assassinations are ok though.
  6. Though shalt not commit adultery – unless though art a pastor and his secretary or a pastor and the girls in his youth group. Then it’s ok.
  7. Though shalt not steal – unless though calleth it tithes, offerings, gifts, pastor appreciation offerings, building funds, missions funds, bus ministry funds or another project though hast deemed appropriate to take money from thy congregation.
  8. Though shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor – except through the proper gossip lines and only if thy motive is so that people can pray for that neighbor.
  9. Though shalt not covet – unless though art coveting thy neighbor’s new KJV Bible. Gluttony is also ok.
  10. Though shalt not listen to or sing music other than hymns with only piano and/or organ accompaniment or that which has already been approved such as Ron Hamilton, Frank Garlock, and/or a Majesty Music affiliate or other such Fundamental type music ministry.
  11. Though shalt dress modestly at all times. “Modest”, however, is defined only by the IFB and no other definition of modest is acceptable.
  12. Though shalt not be part of the world but ye must be separate from it. Though shalt not even give cause for anyone to even think that though art part of the world in anyway. Though must be completely separate in every way – so much so that though thinketh though art better than everyone else and so out of touch with society in general that though hast no idea what society needs or wants spiritually.
  13. Though must attend an IFB approved college or Bible Institute for higher learning and ministry preparation.
  14. Though shalt never be depressed, sad, angry, or experience any other “negative” type emotion.
  15. Though must never drink alcohol or even think about drinking an alcoholic beverage, going to a liquour store, bar or restaurant/convenience store that sells alcohol. Using medicine that contains alcohol is OK though, oh and so is vanilla extract.
  16. Though must strive for perfection in every way.
Yes, I realize there are more than ten but the IFB is allowed to add their own set if rules and laws so it’s OK.

 Fairfax, VA – -(  The National Rifle Association today issued the 
following statement:
“In the aftermath of the evil and senseless attack in Las Vegas, the American people are looking for answers as to how future tragedies can be prevented. Unfortunately, the first response from some politicians has been to call for more gun control. Banning guns from law-abiding Americans based on the criminal act of a madman will do nothing to prevent future attacks.”
“This is a fact that has been proven time and again in countries across the world. In Las Vegas, reports indicate that certain devices were used to modify the firearms involved. Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law.”

“The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.”

“In an increasingly dangerous world, the NRA remains focused on our mission: strengthening Americans' Second Amendment freedom to defend themselves, their families and their communities.
To that end, on behalf of our five million members across the country, we urge Congress to pass National Right-to-Carry reciprocity, which will allow law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families from acts of violence.”
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services. Follow the NRA on social at and Twitter @NRA.

 You didn’t eat any forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. It was Adam. It was 
Eve. It wasn’t you. You didn’t do it. Yet, you are suffering the consequences of 
the offense of your first parents. The Apostle Paul made this clear in his Epistle 
to the Romans:
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come.” Romans 5:12-14
Death reigned even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam. That doesn’t sit right with many but it is nevertheless true.
Paul’s statement from Romans concerns our first parents but what about our actual parents? Do children suffer for the offenses of their parents? Yes. Moses made this clear in his biblical writings:
“You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6
Moses quotes the passage above in Numbers 14:18 when conversing with the Lord and remind the Israelites of it in Deuteronomy 5:8-10. The people of God are clearly not meant to forget it. The Lord gives his warning to parents in the specific context of committing idolatry but there is a an obvious principle: children suffer for the iniquity of their parents. Even outside of specific divine punishment, this is a truism of which parents are generally aware. When a parent makes a bad decision, be it sinful or merely stupid, his child will suffer the consequences. Unfortunately, this truism is lost among a group of professional theologians, chief among them top Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore, who recently drafted the Evangelical Leader Statement of Principles on Dreamers. This statement advocates for immigration law amnesty in the cases of certain children who were illegally brought into the United States by their parents. While their outlook on government policy is debatable, their clear flouting of biblical theology is completely unacceptable. Their offense is summarized in a single sentence from their statement:
“We believe it is unjust to punish children for offenses they did not commit.”
How can this be so, if God has visited the iniquity of fathers on their children? Even if God no longer does it, he has done it. Justice itself, in eternity past and going perpetually forward, is objectively grounded in the nature of God. How can God have ever done something that was unjust? Did Paul and Moses make false statements about God or did the authors of the Evangelical Leader Statement of Principles on Dreamers, which does not include a single biblical citation, impugn the character of God?
In the long history of the United States, immigrant parents have come to this country to give their children a better life. This is true of parents who have emigrated both legally and illegally. The logical implication of the Evangelical Leader Statement of Principles on Dreamers is that those parents who broke the law in an effort to give their children a better life (despite any negative impacts on the children of their neighbors) should be rewarded. Their children get to stay even though they broke the law to bring them to the United States. The parents did wrong; their children benefit because it’s apparently “unjust to punish children for offenses they did not commit”. So, what exactly is the consequence of the parents breaking the law? Their children benefit and it’s unjust for the government to remove the benefit.
That’s hogwash.
How is it that these leaders continue to be funded and given positions of influence by Southern Baptists? Why are they given a platform to make a patently unbiblical statement? Their sense of justice is obviously grounded in a popular idea of human fairness and not the infallible word of God. Southern Baptists should stop giving them money to contradict the word of God to in the course of scoring political points.

[Editor’s Note: JD Hall also explained the error of this, and compared the promises of the New Covenant in Jeremiah 31 to the promise of punishment upon children in Deuteronomy 6.

Southern Baptists Cry Foul About DACA, 
Immigration Laws
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission has become the shallow remnants of what it once was. Now with a former Democrat staffer at the helm, the ERLC has been busy promoting animal rights, racial disharmony, Cultural Marxism, and has followed other liberal mainstream denominations in fighting against immigration law.

George Soros, who funds the Evangelical Immigration Table, an organization of liberal Christians fighting border security, on which serves Russell Moore
Russell Moore – who serves on the Evangelical Immigration Table funded by George Soros and called a border wall a “golden calf” – has begun a document petition at the ERLC, requesting that DACA be reinstated. Moore, who implied that Southern Baptists disagree with President’s Trump’s temporary terrorist-nation immigration ban, is busy fighting for his progressive-liberal agenda with the full faith and 4 million-a-year backing of the Southern Baptist Convention.
DACA stands for “Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals” and refers to President Obama’s decision in 2012 to not enforce standing immigration law for those called “Dreamers,” illegal aliens between the age of 18 and 35 who have been in the United States more than five years and who were brought here illegally as minors. DACA was not legislation, but “procedural law” of Obama’s executive branch that essentially said it would use prosecutorial discretion to simply not enforce immigration law. This presented a Constitutional crisis, because even though law enforcement can exercise discretion in deciding which individual cases to prosecute, they typically have not essentially nullified legislation by applying that discretion to entire classes or demographics of people. The Trump Administration’s Department of Homeland Security rescinded Obama’s DACA in September of this year on the grounds that it was an unconstitutional power-grab by the executive branch of government.
Ironically, as President Trump’s DHS rescinded DACA, he said that he hoped congress would legally pass such an exemption through the legislature. Virtually everyone – on both sides of the political aisle – have said that they want to work out something similar to DACA through the proper legislative (and constitutional) channels.
However, the social justice warriors at the ERLC and among the Evangelical Intelligentsia want to bleed their heart all over the blogosphere and signal their progressive virtue. The document says…
Biblically understood, a just system of law always has in view human flourishing. We advocate for change to particular laws when needed because of our respect for the rule of law. Many of us have participated in our nation’s debate over immigration policy reform for well over a decade, and these conversations within our churches about the national immigration crisis have produced significant consensus among members of our churches and communities.
“Human flourishing.” That’s the catch-all word used by the Jim Wallis-wing of leftist Christianity. The document goes on to say, “We believe Dreamers deserve to be recognized as our fellow Americans” and calls on Congress to grant amnesty and a path of permanent Citizenship.
Signing the document include virtually all the names one would expect to see from the inner-club of Intelligentsia, including DA Carson, Matt Chandler, David Dockery, JD Greear, and newly minted Southern Baptist, Greg Laurie. Other names include Rosaria Butterfield, whose most notable accomplishment is having once been gay, and Karen Swallow Prior, a feminist and animal rights activist. Also signing is NAR charismatic, Samuel Rodriguez.
If you’re a Southern Baptist, do you agree with how your money is being spent and with the trajectory of the ERLC?

 The Evangelical Immigration Table Exposed 
As Another Soros Front

"EIT reportedly does not legally exist and is an arm of the George Soros funded National Immigration Forum, which as a “neutral third-party institution” facilitated EIT’s $250,000 radio ad campaign urging Evangelicals to back mass legalization of illegal immigrants.
So if the EIT is just a front, then what exactly is the National Immigration Forum? NIF received over three million dollars from Soros’ Open Society Institute (OSI) in 2009-2010 alone, as well as one million dollars from the left-wing Ford Foundation. Furthermore, Sojourners is also a recipient of Soros’ money, and their President and CEO, Jim Wallis, is prominent within EIT.
 EIT organized events on religious college campuses, primarily focusing on their “I Was A Stranger” campaign (which, if you haven’t seen it, is a truly masterful piece of emotional blackmail).
 But there remains the nauseating fact that some Evangelicals are peddling a new sort of liberation theology to American Christians, aided by a man who has actively supported and financed organizations that directly go against Evangelical beliefs about marriage, abortion, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell research."


 Shannon Kershner Pastor-Elect Fourth Presbyterian Church



Presbyterian Megachurch ‘Pastor’ Says God Isn’t Male, Denies Exclusivity of Christ


republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Shannon Johnson Kershner is the impastor of the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago, a 5,500  member megachurch. The church just happens to be the second-largest church belonging to the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America (PCUSA). In a podcast with the Chicago Sun, she recently denied that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.
Known as the “Exclusivity of Christ,” this doctrine teachers that the only means of salvation is through Christ. This is a benchmark doctrine of virtually all Protestant Christian thought, and is enshrined in Reformation theology as Sola Christus. Denying the Exclusivity of Christ is tacitly a form of Universalism or pseudo-Universalism, which teaches that ultimately, everyone (or most) will be saved whether or not they come to Christ for their salvation.
Claiming that she desires to “reform” the church “from the inside out,” Kershner has indeed set about to change historic Christian doctrine.
Kershner begins her reforming of the church by first attacking the doctrine of God, telling the Chicago Sun, that we should get “beyond this idol of maleness that we’ve constructed both for the divine as well as for clergy.” Of course, an idol is a manufactured image, but God does reveal himself as male (although God the Father is spirit and has no flesh, this is how he identifies Himself to us). It’s beyond perverse to refer to a revealed attribute of God as an “idol.”
Why should we view God as female? Well, it’s so that little girls can become pastors, with Kershner saying, ““I wanted to make sure that little girls knew that God could call them to be pastors, too.”
Of course, God does not not little girls – or grown women – to be pastors, and explicitly qualifies pastoral leadership as a male gender role in the pastoral epistles of Timothy and Titus.
Kershner also said, “I really do not overly concern myself with issues of salvation, especially salvation of other folks — that’s God’s job description and not my own.” Of course Paul told Timothy – a pastor – to do the work of an evangelist (2 Timothy 4:5) and proclaiming Good News to the lost is an essential function of the church and of church leadership.
When asked if Jesus was the only way to salvation, Kershner responded, “No, God’s not a Christian. I mean, we are . . . For me, the Christian tradition is the way to understand God and my relationship with the world and other humans . . . But I’m not about to say what God can and cannot do in other ways and with other spiritual experiences.”
Jesus was pretty clear about what God would and wound not do regarding salvation, and affirmed his exclusive means of salvation in places like John 14:6.

Good. I hope they win a massive settlement and drive them all out of business. Each one has been cutting off its platform to foes of jihad terror. In February, referrals from Facebook and Twitter to Jihad Watch dropped by 90% and have never recovered. Google has changed its search results so that when one searches for topics related to Islam and jihad, only results whitewashing Islam’s links to terrorism come up. Meanwhile jihad terrorists, as is clear from this case, have free rein. These monopolies need to be broken up, and the sooner the better, as they are actively working against the freedom of speech.
“Daughters of California man killed in Barcelona terror attack sue Google, Facebook and Twitter ‘for aiding, abetting and knowingly providing support and resources’ to ISIS,” by Julian Robinson, MailOnline, October 6, 2017:
The family of a California man killed in the terror attack in Barcelona is suing Facebook, Twitter and Google for their part in ‘aiding, abetting and knowingly providing support and resources’ to ISIS, it has emerged
Jared Tucker, from Walnut Creek, was one of 13 people who died when a van mowed down pedestrians on the Spanish city’s packed La Rambla on August 17.
The three daughters of the 42-year-old, who was celebrating his one year anniversary with wife Heidi Nunes-Tucker in Barcelona when he was killed, have now filed a lawsuit against the tech giants.
According to the New York Post, the complaint claims the firms have ‘for years knowingly and recklessly provided the terrorist group ISIS with accounts to use its social networks as a tool for spreading extremist propaganda, raising funds and attracting new recruits.’…

It’s very likely that those classmates were also adherents of the Religion of Peace. Jews have not had this kind of trouble in France since World War II, until this period of massive Muslim immigration.
The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“French girl hospitalized following classmates’ antisemitic attack,” JTA, October 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A 10-year-old girl was assaulted by her classmates and the home of a family was daubed with racist graffiti in two Paris-area incidents deemed antisemitic.
The alleged assault was reported to France’s ministry of education by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Antisemitism, or BNVCA, the watchdog group wrote in a statement on its website Tuesday.  Separately, the same group reported that unidentified individuals on Wednesday wrote antisemitic slogans on the side of a home belonging to Jewish family in the eastern suburb of Noisy le Grand.
The mother of the girl who allegedly was assaulted, identified by BNVCA only as Ness, complained to police recently that a group of classmates of her daughter in the public school which she attends in Paris’ 18th district beat her on multiple occasions, often occurring day after day, only because she is Jewish. After one beating, Ness was brought to hospital with a visible contusion to her stomach and ribcage, the report said, requiring 10 days of recovery.
The child will be transferred to a different school, BNVCA wrote.
According to Francis Kalifat, the president of the CRIF federation of Jewish communities of France, antisemitic harassment has made public schools unsafe for Jews, leading to a sharp drop in the number of Jews attending them. In the past, a third of Jewish parents enrolled their children to public schools but now “no one does it,” he told JTA last year.
In the incident involving antisemitic graffiti, BNVCA said it was part of a campaign of intimidation against the family that owns the building targeted.
This time, they wrote “screw the shitty Jews, death to Jews, long live Palestine.” In recent years, the same family found in their mailbox an envelope featuring the words “Allah hu akbar” – Arabic for Allah is the greatest — with 9-milimeter bullets inside. They later received another envelope with a bullet for an AK-47 assault rifle and the words: “The next one is for you.”
The family is afraid to live in their home, wrote BNVCA, which complained to police about the incidents committed against the family and called on authorities to apprehend the culprits….

The Left is working hard to destroy the freedom of speech and silence all those who dissent from the globalist, internationalist, socialist and pro-jihad agenda. Leftist politicians already maneuvered Trump into signing one measure against “hate groups,” when the Southern Poverty Law Center’s manipulative and propagandistic “hate group” list includes legitimate groups along with the KKK and the neo-Nazis, in an attempt to destroy them.
This whole concept of “hate groups” and “hate speech” is contrary to the freedom of speech. If “hate speech” is proscribed by the government, a tyranny will be established in which Leftists can simply outlaw and deny all platforms to those they hate by labeling them in this way. It’s coming, unless enough people wake up in time.

“‘War on free speech’: Conservatives warn Trump of ‘hate’ measure,” by Art Moore, World Net Daily, October 6, 2017:
A collection of conservative leaders have written to President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan expressing “grave concern” about a joint resolution approved by the Senate and House targeting “hate speech.”
Hastily enacted Sept. 14 without public debate, Public Law 115-58, the leaders write, could “lead to unconstitutional suppression of freedom of expression aimed at silencing those smeared by political opponents as, for example, ‘haters,’ ‘racists’ or ‘bigots.’”
“Many of us have been slandered in this fashion, falsely characterized as ‘white supremacists’ or some other, similarly disparaging epithet simply because we support, for example, traditional marriage, civil liberties rather than Sharia, secure borders and the enforcement of our immigration laws and/or effective counterterrorism policies,” they write.
Even worse, they say, the name-calling is “just the leading edge of an aggressive campaign to ruin the financial condition and prevent the widespread dissemination of the work of individuals and groups being targeted for what amounts to unrestricted political warfare.”
The statute “urges the President and his administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy and use all resources available to the President and the President’s Cabinet to address the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States.”
The letter calls upon the attorney general, the secretary of homeland security and the heads of other federal agencies to engage in such activities as investigating “thoroughly all acts of violence, intimidation, and domestic terrorism by White supremacists, White nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and associated groups” and to improve “the reporting of hate crimes and to emphasize the importance of the collection, and the reporting to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, of hate crime data by State and local agencies.”
The problem, the leaders say, is that the statute does not define terms such as “hate group,” “white supremacist,” “extremist,” “anti-immigrant” and “xenophobia.”
“These open-ended mandates, they argue, “invite abuses of power by the state.”
Among the signatories are Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, retired U.S. Navy Admiral James Ace Lyons Jr., Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch, Brigitte Gabriel of ACT! For America, Joseph Farah of and DHS whistleblower Philip Haney.
The statute particularly gives legitimacy and power to “self-appointed arbiters of ‘hate,’ such as the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center and others on the radical left and their Islamic allies, the conservative leaders warn….
In their letter, the conservative leaders point to other bills “designed to further advance this agenda and now awaiting consideration may similarly be foisted upon the American people to their grave detriment.”
The bills include:
  • “The National Opposition to Hate, Assault, and Threats to Equality Act of 2017” — the “No HATE Act” — which would expand governmental efforts to collect “hate crimes” data and create private rights of action for “crimes motivated by actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin.”
  • Senate Resolution 118, passed in April, which condemns “any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States.” The conservative leaders contend it cites discredited data about hate crimes to justify intensified federal action to “detect and deter hate crimes to protect minority communities.”
  • “The Disarm Hate Act,” House Continuing Resolution 77, urges the president “to prohibit the hiring of individuals … who have supported or encouraged support for White supremacists” and “to use all available resources of the office of the President and the Cabinet to address the growing prevalence of such hate groups domestically.”
The conservative leaders contend the legislative initiatives “share a false narrative, namely that the United States is overwhelmed with large numbers of ‘white supremacists’ and individuals and groups allegedly associated with them who pose a threat to the rights of minorities and other Americans.”
“This narrative is unsupported by the facts,” they write. “More importantly, this narrative is based on the same undefined terms now codified in PL115-58, terms that are used to defame and incapacitate people and organizations like the signatories of this letter simply because they effectively oppose the agenda of those who have made a cottage industry of ‘hate’ and employ it as an instrument of political warfare.”…
