Proposed legislation

The following was sent to me by a friend by way of an e-mail. I have not changed much of the original message. I left out a small amount of material and changed the font. It is my understanding that it originated with Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman of American Family Association. According to my information, the website for the same is at The e-mail message:

“February 20, 2007
Please help us get this information into the hands of as many people as possible by forwarding it to your entire list of family and friends.
Contact Your Representative In Opposition to HR 254 Today!
The U.S. House of Representatives will soon vote on HR 254, which establishes ‘hate crime’ legislation. HR 254 will create new special rights for homosexuals under the guise of enhancing law enforcement. It would make ‘sexual orientation’ a protected class alongside race, religion and gender. (Has your local paper covered this? Mine has not, as far as I know!—my addition)
The only way this bill can be defeated is with a real grassroots uprising by those who care about the future of their children, families and marriages!
The intent of this law is to force acceptance and approval of homosexuality on every American, regardless of their religious views. Here is a short summary of HR 254 (The reader needs to go the website to do this. I could not copy and paste the text as I wanted it to appear—my addition.)
For a more in-depth review of where we are headed, click here (Again, go to the website to do this—my addition.)
Here is a partial list of what homosexual activists are trying to force on every American. While HR 254 will not, in and of itself, accomplish these goals, it will open the door to such regulations. Once the elephant gets its trunk under the tent, the way is open for the elephant to move inside and do whatever he wants.
1) Preaching that homosexuality is a sin from the pulpit will result in the preacher being charged with ‘hate speech.’
2) Churches will have their tax-exempt status revoked if they oppose homosexuality.
3) Homosexual marriage will be legalized and recognized in all states.
4) Polygamy will be legalized.
5) Landlords will be forced to rent to homosexuals.
6) Scouts, and all non-profit organizations, will be required to hire homosexuals as leaders. (That will also include churches even if they believe homosexuality is a sin. Imagine, a homosexual preacher preaching to the congregation on the evils of homosexuality—my addition.)
7) Biblical language used to define homosexuality will be considered ‘hate speech.’ City officials have already had a billboard removed in Long Island, NY, because it was classified as ‘hate speech.’ The billboard read: ‘If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.’ (Leviticus 20:13)
8) Employees will not be allowed to say anything negative about homosexuality in their workplaces.
9) Classes promoting homosexual lifestyle will be included in school curricula beginning with the lower grades.
10) Employers will be forced to hire homosexuals.
11) Adoption by homosexuals will be legalized in every state. (It is my understanding that most of these eleven points have already been enacted in Canada and, of course, some of them have already been enacted in portions of the United States—my addition.)

Let me say again: HR 254 will not, in and of itself, accomplish everything the homosexual activists’ desire. But it is the first step to position their cause where they can achieve all their goals. (Examining the activities of homosexual activists over the last forty plus years, they have been successful in slowly but surely implementing their goals by doing it incrementally. They first argued that government should stay out of their bedroom. They then argued that government and businesses should pay for their bedroom (through insurance and other programs that recognize homosexuality as a legitimate behavior) and now, of course, they are pushing that government legally recognize their immoral behavior. Now, many new, nighttime television shows include at least one homosexual in the program and we had a homosexual promoting movie win an academy award for best picture. This is not surprising given the almost total lack of morality exhibited by Hollywood in film and television—my addition)
If they are successful with HR 254, rest assured they will pursue their next goal and will not stop until they achieve all their goals. (And why would they. America has become so immoral that many Americans can’t tell the difference between moral and immoral. They argue that it is moral and a Constitutional right to murder their own unborn child. So called “advice experts” parrot the politically moronic line that there is nothing wrong with homosexual behavior and some pseudo churches proclaim the same lies—my addition.)
