Conservative Black Preachers bear false Witness!!!
Well look at this foolishness, and full of sh*t here!A group of conservative black "pimping" preachers have banded together to take on comprehensive hate crime laws. Is it a surprise? Hell No! It seems they have no sense of reality, or what the bill's purpose. The NAACP, gay groups, civil rights groups, etc support the bill.
As the the U.S Senate goes up to debate The Matthew Shepard law, "uncle Tom" Reverend Ken Hutcherson and his peers have placed the above ad, which reads:
"Christian clergymen and people of faith are making a stand today for religious liberty. WE OPPOSE S.1105, “The Matthew Shepard Act.” We believe prosecutors and anti-Christian groups will use loop holes in this proposed legislation to muzzle the church. Unnecessary lawsuits will bring a chilling effect to the free speech and religious liberty of our churches and of our members".
Now where does the bill say it restricts free speech such as religious speech? It's one thing to oppose the bill, but lieing is whole different thing.
"We understand more clearly than most that racially motivated violence can be a form of internal terrorism. The Black Community needs a free puplits. Indeed, ALL Americans need free pulpit. We urge Senate to to avoid misguided compassion take away America’s most basic freedoms - our freedom of speech, our freedom of conscience and our freedom to exercise religion.
Once again the bill clearly says: "Nothing in this act, or the amendments made by this Act, shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct protected from legal prohibition by, or any activities protected by the free speech or free exercise clauses the First Amendment to the Constitution" the hate crime bill says.
It seems to me and others they have taken a page out of the Family Research Council. These black Conservative have lost their damn minds. This ad’s logic, however, can certainly be described as “surprising,” and ridiculous especially because, as BoxTurtlebullintin.com points out, African-American people are included in hate crimes laws, yet still find themselves on the receiving end of hate speech:
"Despite enjoying hate crime protections for a number of years, the African-American community continues to be the target of constitutionally protected hate speech whenever the Klan wins approval to hold rallies on courthouse squares and statehouse lawns. Nothing in the existing hate crime laws has succeeded in muzzling their First Amendment rights to free speech.
… There are at least thirty seven racist Christian Identity groups active across America. Some even operate radio broadcasts and “prison ministries.”
Indeed. Hate crime laws do not and will not hinder free speech, particularly with regard to religion. Those who say the laws will are either idiots, over-zealous, blinded by discrimination, hateful,bigots,closted gay person, hypocrite, or all of the above. Free Speech will remain untouch!
