The Political Orgy on Capitol Hill by Akindele Akinyemi



It must be one huge political orgy up on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. Everyone is in the bed with everyone. Color, creed or sex does not matter.

Who in the hell would go along with H.R. 1592 that was introduced by Congressman John Conyers and Mark Kirk (R-IL). Its informal name is the Matthew Shepard Act, named after a gay male who died after being physically attacked and crucified in Wyoming (remember that movie that came on NBC a couple of years ago)?

My question is are Conyers and Kirk gay or have gay tendencies? I mean why would you support such a bill?

If passed into law, it would update the federal hate crimes act of 1968. That act has applied to only those hate crimes motivated by racism, or hatred of a victim's ethnicity, national origin or religion.

The bill states the following:

To provide Federal assistance to States, local jurisdictions, and Indian tribes to prosecute hate crimes, and for other purposes.


Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,


SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the `Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007'.


SEC. 2. FINDINGS.
Congress makes the following findings:


(1) The incidence of violence motivated by the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of the victim poses a serious national problem.


(2) Such violence disrupts the tranquility and safety of communities and is deeply divisive.


(3) State and local authorities are now and will continue to be responsible for prosecuting the overwhelming majority of violent crimes in the United States, including violent crimes motivated by bias. These authorities can carry out their responsibilities more effectively with greater Federal assistance.


(4) Existing Federal law is inadequate to address this problem.


(5) A prominent characteristic of a violent crime motivated by bias is that it devastates not just the actual victim and the family and friends of the victim, but frequently savages the community sharing the traits that caused the victim to be selected.


(6) Such violence substantially affects interstate commerce in many ways, including the following:


(A) The movement of members of targeted groups is impeded, and members of such groups are forced to move across State lines to escape the incidence or risk of such violence.


(B) Members of targeted groups are prevented from purchasing goods and services, obtaining or sustaining employment, or participating in other commercial activity.


(C) Perpetrators cross State lines to commit such violence.


(D) Channels, facilities, and instrumentalities of interstate commerce are used to facilitate the commission of such violence.


(E) Such violence is committed using articles that have traveled in interstate commerce.


(7) For generations, the institutions of slavery and involuntary servitude were defined by the race, color, and ancestry of those held in bondage. Slavery and involuntary servitude were enforced, both prior to and after the adoption of the 13th amendment to the Constitution of the United States, through widespread public and private violence directed at persons because of their race, color, or ancestry, or perceived race, color, or ancestry. Accordingly, eliminating racially motivated violence is an important means of eliminating, to the extent possible, the badges, incidents, and relics of slavery and involuntary servitude.


(8) Both at the time when the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution of the United States were adopted, and continuing to date, members of certain religious and national origin groups were and are perceived to be distinct `races'. Thus, in order to eliminate, to the extent possible, the badges, incidents, and relics of slavery, it is necessary to prohibit assaults on the basis of real or perceived religions or national origins, at least to the extent such religions or national origins were regarded as races at the time of the adoption of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the Constitution of the United States.


(9) Federal jurisdiction over certain violent crimes motivated by bias enables Federal, State, and local authorities to work together as partners in the investigation and prosecution of such crimes.


(10) The problem of crimes motivated by bias is sufficiently serious, widespread, and interstate in nature as to warrant Federal assistance to States, local jurisdictions, and Indian tribes.


SEC. 3. DEFINITION OF HATE CRIME.
In this Act--


(1) the term `crime of violence' has the meaning given that term in section 16, title 18, United States Code;


(2) the term `hate crime' has the meaning given such term in section 280003(a) of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (28 U.S.C. 994 note); and


(3) the term `local' means a county, city, town, township, parish, village, or other general purpose political subdivision of a State.

What makes this bill so controversial is that the Homosexual lobby is pushing this bill hard. The liberal media, on the other hand, is keeping silent on this bill. I wonder why?

If this bill passes most Christians might as well rip the pages which condemn homosexuality right out of their Bibles because this bill will make it illegal to publicly express the dictates of their religious beliefs. This is the core reason why I kept telling people NOT to vote Democratic last year. While most of us were mad as hell about the War in Iraq the Homosexual lobby was working BOTH sides of the aisle (I hope BLACK PEOPLE are paying attention to this). While some people might say this bill is not as important as fatherlessness in the home we are not teaching our children balance in the home, regardless of what religion you belong to.

What Black pastor who supported the Democratic Party in November is going to go along with this foolishness?

The homosexual lobby claims that there’s an epidemic of so-called “hate crimes” against homosexuals and drag queens that needs federal involvement for local law enforcement officials. There is no epidemic of hate directed against homosexuals or drag queens.

FBI statistics from 2005 show that there were only 1,171 cases of sexual orientation bias crimes that year. Of those, 301 are listed as intimidation – which is name-calling; 333 are listed as simple assault (pushing or shoving) and 177 were listed as aggravated assault (where bodily injury occurs).

Granting protected class status to homosexuals is not necessary. Congress may combat violence without expanding the protected class status to homosexuals. Indeed, Congress may simply grant additional funding to local governmental units to combat physical violence against all its citizens. This would, indeed, address the concern of homosexual assaults as well. It is morally wrong to deprive anyone of the means to feed themselves and care for their families. Passage of this bill will help gay, lesbian and transgender people in 33 states where you can be fired for simply being gay.

This Hate Crimes bill also begins to lay the legal framework whereby Bible-believing Pastors, business owners and individuals can be persecuted and prosecuted. This also includes parents who refuse, for moral and religious reasons, to agree or teach their children that homosexuality, transgender, cross-dressing etc is normal and desirable.

Under the guise of hate-crime prevention this anti-Christian legislation will: • Silence the Bible-believing Churches, Pastors and Christians

• Criminalize so-called "hate speech," - which is any speech that is critical of homosexuality or cross-dressing behaviors. The suppression of free speech will be justified by the claim that such speech "incites" individuals to commit violence against homosexuals, cross-dressers etc. Any remarks about homosexuality, such as reading Bible passages, preaching on these passages, telling a person they can come out of the homosexual lifestyle, etc. will be deemed critical remarks and will be ruled to be outside the bounds of First Amendment protections for pastors, business-owners and individuals.

• Elevate homosexuality and cross-dressing behaviors such as drag queens, transsexualism, she-males, etc. to the status of federally-protected minorities. These behaviors will be considered equal to race under the federal law.

• Interfere with local law enforcement by elevating every alleged incident of "hate" against a homosexual or cross-dresser into a federal crime.

• Fund anti-Christian curriculum for children K-12, through the U.S. Departments of Education and Justice to promote homosexuality and cross-dressing as normal behaviors.

In addition, HR 1592 makes false claims that

1) Homosexuals are fleeing across state lines to avoid persecution;

2) Perpetrators are crossing state lines to commit crimes against them;

3) Homosexuals are so persecuted they have trouble purchasing goods and services or finding employment. These false claims about homosexuals fleeing across state lines are being used as a hook to justify federal involvement in local law enforcement through the Interstate Commerce Clause of the Constitution.

Churches will be challenged all across the country. Especially in the Black community where 64% of the Black population opposes gay marriage but 90% vote Democratic. That does not make any damn sense to me. However, the homosexual lobby have their strategy down packed. They sat and waited, observed and then executed on both sides of the aisle to push this legislation. The same with AIPAC. They work BOTH sides of the aisle to make Americans pay taxes for Israel, a country that most of us have never even been to in our lives.

Black people STILL do not work both sides of the aisle. When we have Black Republicans working on the other side of the aisle we are called Uncle Toms and sellouts. That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my life. While other lobbying groups work against our cause we still pull each other down in a barrel like crabs.

Christians everywhere (at least true believers) better get off their asses. If this passes churches all over the U.S. will be challenged under the provisions of this bill. They will be forced to take in those of other "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" or face prosecution under the phrase of "denial of goods and services". They are already working on taking God off the dollar bill.

Next will be the teachings of The Bible. Christians are sleepwalking and fighting among each other. Any minister or pastor that is supporting this bill should leave that church immediately.

Why support homosexuality? I have never seen a jackal screw a coyote or a jaguar screw a lion. It is out of nature. So why practice and give rights to a group that is out of nature?

I would like to meet with some of our faith based leaders to create a serious strategy on a state level to protect our religious freedoms right in our own backyard. We have to act now. We need to strengthen our families now. I also would like to begin meeting with our conservatives on this issue (and other family related issues)

Jon Stryker is most likely have something to do with this. This is why he wanted the State Democrats in Michigan to control BOTH the House and Senate so he could push this homosexual agenda right in our backyards. The Young Democrats were caught off guard and fell into the hype of getting their Democratic leadership elected only to see that they were begin used in the process. This goes for the Young Republicans as well.

With the summer coming we are in for a long and hot fight. The NAACP and other groups cannot help us. We have to help ourselves.
