“The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act.”

To the Editor:

There is a bill on the fast track in the U.S. Senate (S. 909) that would not only criminalize free speech but provide elevated protection to pedophiles. The bill is euphemistically called “The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act.”

It should rightfully be called “The Pedophile Protection Act.” It was exposed as such when an amendment to exclude pedophiles from special legal protections, offered by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, was rejected by the Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee.

Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Florida, admitted from the House Floor that this bill put 547 forms of sexual deviancies listed by the American Psychiatric Association, which he referred to as “all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’” on the same level of elevated protection as “race … religion … gender … or disability.”

If a mother hears that their child has been raped and she slaps the assailant with her purse, she is now gone after as a hate criminal because this is a protected class. There are other protected classes in here. I mean simple exhibitionism. If guy flashes a woman and her immediate reaction is to hit him with her purse, he’s only committed a misdemeanor; BUT, she has committed a federal hate crime because the exhibitionism is protected under sexual orientation.

If there was ever a time for Christians to take a stand and for the Senate to stand and fight with a filibuster, that time is now. Contact Senator Byrd, 311 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING WASHINGTON DC 20510 (202) 224-3954 or and contact Senator Rockefeller, 531 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING WASHINGTON DC 20510 (202) 224-6472 or

No one is advocating hatred or harm upon a person. However, we do hate what they do; and, it is the pedophile and pervert who should be punished–not the righteous and decent citizen. Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil…”
