One of the more powerful tools in the hands of those waging war against God and Christianity is “Hate.”
In fact, hate is what motivates, inspires, and empowers these anti-God zealots.
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me. [John 15:18-21]
Hate is something that Bible believers understand will become more commonplace in our world as we near the end of times. Indeed, as John 15:18-21 pointed out, it is something Christians should not be surprised at as non-believers scramble to try to erase the knowledge of sin in their lives.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other…” [Matt. 24:9-10]
What the Church is experiencing today might be the preparations being made to fulfill Matthew 24:9 as we draw near to the end. It is a process being refined by those that reject God and will likely be perfected in the hands of the antichrist (Rev. 13:16).
Control & Domination Through Hate
These five steps have been seen throughout history as tyrants have sought to control and dominate others.
- The first step in the progression toward persecution of persons is identification.
- The second is marginalization;
- The third, vilification;
- The fourth, criminalization;
- And finally, persecution (I believe we are now entering this stage today).
It was the tactic Nero used in 64-68 AD to persecute Christians. In 303, Emperor Diocletian again used this tactic to eventually kill over 20,000 Christians. It was also the tactic Nazi Germany used against the Jews resulting in between 11 million and 17 million victims. And, today it is the same tactic being used by godless collectivists in America against the Christian church.
On April 23, 1990, Republican President George Bush signed into law the “Hate Crimes Statistics Act“. The legislation mandates that the Department of Justice compile and publish “hate crimes” data as part of the Federal Uniform Crime Reports.
Later, when attorney General Janet Reno released FBI statistics showing thousands of hate crimes in America during 1996, she pulled the classic hat trick – cook up a crisis, expand its scope, and call for expansive federal solutions.
First, the definition of what constitutes a “hate crime” is murky. Over half of the “hate crimes” reported were either “intimidation,” or “simple assault,” neither of which necessarily involves even being touched. Even the FBI report concedes that “hate crime is by its very nature often difficult to identify.”
Still, Reno wanted to expand the scope, if not the clarity, of the definition to include sexual orientation – potentially making public disapproval of sodomy a crime. She also called for expanded federal powers to accompany the newly expanded definition of a “hate crime.” This included 93 new “hate crime coordinators” nationwide whose jobs will depend on hyping the “hate crime” crisis.
Why expend resources on “crime” that is difficult even to identify? Real crimes involving violence, credible threat, or vandalism are already covered by state and local law enforcement, and identifying them is easy enough.
But, as we know from John 15:18-21, crime is NOT really the issue. What these anti-God people want is an efficient way to tell the difference between those who follow the teachings of the Bible and those who don’t.
Christians Targeted as Domestic Terrorists
Today, one does not need to blow up buildings, take hostages in political motivation, send anthrax through the mail, or even wave a gun around in a public place to be considered a terrorist threat. The miac-strategic-report does not concentrate on Muslim terrorists, but rather on the so-called “militia movement” and conflates it with supporters of Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, the so-called patriot movement and other political activist organizations opposed to the North American Union and the New World Order.
FEMA Partners with Homeland Security
A shocking Department of Homeland Security video depicted white Americans as the most likely terrorists only confirms that the federal government is now profiling middle class America as the main terror threat.
Anyone, and especially Christians, who disagree with the anti-God dogma of the Collectivists are not to be given credibility.
President Clinton dialed into a radio call-in program from Air Force One in June 1994 and unleashed an unusually bitter, 23-minute attack on the press, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, conservative radio talk show hosts in general and Rush Limbaugh in particular.
Clinton portrayed the nation’s airwaves as being filled with a “constant, unremitting drumbeat of negativism and cynicism.” “I think there is too much cynicism and too much intolerance,” he said. “But if you look at the information they get, if you look at how much more negative the news reports are, how much more editorial they are and how much less direct they are, if you look at how much of talk radio is just a constant, unremitting drumbeat of negativism and cynicism, you can’t – I don’t think the American people are cynical, but you can’t blame them for responding that way.”
Clinton and his Marxist comrades have their sights on conservatives when they use the word “hate.” Dateline NBC reported that the White House routinely refers to conservative and/or Christian talk shows as “hate-talk radio.” (Washington Watch, January 1998)
A free and Christian America is the single greatest obstacle to Satan’s establishment of a one-world government. Is it any wonder, then, that at a time when the occult is receiving public acceptance in the corporate, political and educational arenas, the new dirty word in American society has become “right-wing fundamentalists?
U.S. Representative Pat Williams of Montana said at a public hearing, “To paraphrase an old saying, there are lies, damn lies, and right-wing religious zealots…” [Breaking Counterfeit Religion, Charisma, September 1990]
This cartoon illustrates another disturbing trend in our society. The very same people who call themselves enlightened or tolerant are the very same ones screaming loudest, calling others derogatory names, and responsible for most of the violence erupting around us.
I’ve personally experienced these crazies at many of the pro-life rallies I’ve photographed. While the pro-life Christians quietly gathered to pray, the pro-choice crowd yelled vulgarities and generally acted like psychotic bullying lunatics. I think there’s a psychological term for it: projection.
Wikipedia says, “Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others. [Sigmund Freud, Case Histories II (PFL 9) p. 132] For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting.”
A huge part of the political agenda of the homosexual movement is the strategy to paint themselves as disadvantaged in need of protection and the target of extremist Christian “hate” groups. Anyone who disagrees with liberals and sodomites today are labeled “hate mongers” and their speech is labeled “hate speech.”
It’s not violence they are necessarily trying to stop… it’s ALL opposition to their sinful lifestyle they want to stop. Despite the fact that the Jeremiah Project has never called for or condoned violence toward sodomites or any group, I regularly receive hateful tirades from homosexuals calling my writing, “hateful”.
In opposition to everything America has historically stood for, politicians and judges today are defining new inequities in the law.
Are not ALL crimes somehow motivated by hate? To allow sodomites in Washington to delineate various levels of hate with some crimes carrying stiffer penalties than others is to diminish the ultimate power of the law. The entire “hate crimes” debate rings of Naziism and reminds me of George Orwell’s book, “Animal Farm.”
All crimes are hate crimes. But, hate crimes legislation being proposed suggests unequal protection under the law.
In fact, the hate crimes bills being promoted around the world really have nothing at all to do with “hate.”
- They are designed to advance the pro-homosexual agenda.
- They are designed to destroy the sovereignty of free nations.
- They are designed to allow extremist Islamic jihad against Christian nations.
- They are designed to dumb down the population.
- They are designed to legitimize crimes against humanity.
- They are designed to quiet dissenting opinion.
- They are designed to advance the Godless agenda of the Antichrist.
Hate crime legislation does not and will not eliminate hate, but will in effect intensify the hatred that is present within people.
As heinous as Wyoming college student Matthew Shepard’s murder was, the murder of an 8-year-old Wyoming girl, Christin Lamb, was at least as horrific. She had just moved to Laramie, Wyoming, but was visiting her maternal grandparents in Powell, Wyoming, to attend the county fair. She was murdered by her friend’s father who had lured her into his home just across the road from her grandparent’s house. It would be a travesty if we allowed the government to treat the little girl’s murder as less serious than the ‘gay’ college student’s.” But, that’s exactly what the Hate Crimes legislation does.
To advance the cause of something God calls an abomination (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:18-32) is to risk the punishment of God – “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20)
God hating politicians had been trying to pass a Hate Crimes Prevention Act for years that includes sexual orientation, disability and gender to existing federal “hate crimes” laws expanding federal intervention and establish unequal justice under the law. Unable to accomplish their Orwellian goals in a sweeping fashion, they instead took an incremental approach of criminalizing thought crimes against sodomites.
The Hate Crimes Sentencing Enhancement Act, enacted into law as Section 280003 of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, directed the United States Sentencing Commission to provide a sentencing enhancement of “not less than three offense levels for offenses that the finder of fact at trial determines beyond a reasonable doubt are hate crimes.” The provision defined a hate crime as “a crime in which the defendant intentionally selects a victim, or in the case of a property crime, the property that is the object of the crime, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, or sexual orientation of any person.” In May 1995, the United States Sentencing Commission announced its implementation of a three-level increase in its sentencing guidelines for hate crimes.
In May, 1998, President Clinton bypassed Congress and the American people by signing Executive Order 13087 that placed homosexuals, bisexuals, and the “transgendered” in a specially protected category for consideration in federal government jobs and promotions. This was basically an alternative way for the president to implement, without congressional approval, the so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would prohibit discrimination in hiring and employment on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity by civilian and nonreligious employers with at least 15 employees.
President Clinton directed the Justice Department and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to vigorously prosecute those who discriminate against people with AIDS, prosecuting cases against health care providers and facilities violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.
In 2009, President Obama signed The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act that made it a federal crime to assault an individual because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity. The expanded federal hate crimes measure was included in a $680 billion defense authorization bill, which Democratic leaders in Congress intentionally did in an effort to keep Republicans from blocking the legislation. It was named in memory of Matthew Shepard, the gay Wyoming college student who was murdered in 1998. “You understood that we must stand against crimes that are meant not only to break bones, but to break spirits — not only to inflict harm, but to instill fear,” Mr. Obama said.
It took gay rights advocates and proponents of hate crimes legislation many years and several presidents to get their federal hate crime law passed. President Bill Clinton’s attempt was blocked by a Republican Congress; then George W. Bush came to the White House and said he would veto any hate crime legislation that crossed his desk.
At the stroke of a pen, the statute added yet another special class of victims to the set of racial, religious and minority groups already protected by the original federal hate crime legislation passed in 1969. Jim DeMint, the Republican senator from South Carolina, called the law “Orwellian,” questioning the justness of punishing people for their thoughts.
Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007
In Oct, 2007, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that criminalizes American citizens who exercise their Constitutional right of dissent by a huge majority. The vote was held under a suspension of the rules to cut debate short and pass the bill, needing a two-thirds majority. The totals were 404 Ayes, 6 Nays, 22 Present/Not Voting.
A House Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing on “Terrorism and the Internet” broadcast on C-Span, featured a panel of “experts”, including representatives formerly of the RAND Corporation and the Simon Wiesenthal Center who presented 9/11 truth websites sites alongside sites that celebrate the attacks and offer training in terrorist tactics. The hearing was chaired by Democratic Rep. Jane Harman, and ranking Republican, Rep. Dave Reichert. It was supposed to focus on the use of the internet by “home grown terrorist recruiters” yet in a shocking move it blatantly related the 9/11 truth movement with so called radical “jihadists”.
Over recent months we have witnessed a growth in this disturbing trend to attempt to equate peaceful 9/11 researchers and truth activists with violence and extremism. The prime culprits have been establishment “news” hacks who are raising the same talking point ad infinitum, dubbing the global truth movement “anarchists” and violent individuals who may be aiding terrorists. Talking heads such as Fox News Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck over on CNN, have specifically targeted 9/11 truthers in segments designed to portray the movement as dangerous and sow the seed in the minds of what viewers they have left that peaceful truth seekers are actually in league with violent terrorists.
The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 reference to how “The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization, ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United States by providing access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related propaganda to United States citizens,” is shocking. Remember, the bill is not aimed at “Al-Qaeda” websites or arabic forums that post alleged Bin Laden video tapes, it is aimed at American citizens using American based websites, like the very one you’re reading now.
Collectivists claim they want to somehow abolish prejudice, yet, they really need the power of the law to use against those who violate “politically correct thinking.”
The first victim of hate crimes legislation will be freedom of speech. Undoubtedly sodomites will use the law to persecute pastors who speak out from the pulpit calling homosexuality a sin. Similar laws in other nations have already resulted in the conviction of so-called “bigots.”
- A Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission information officer has conceded that a broadcast that calls homosexuality an ‘abomination’ would be considered to have crossed the line, especially if it warned those who engaged in homosexual acts would be damned to eternal perdition.”
- In Sweden, an evangelical pastor served a four-week jail sentence for violating a Swedish anti-hate statute which protects homosexuals and other groups from embarrassing “verbal violence.” He had preached a sermon about Sodom, Gomorrah, and the biblical consequences for disobedience. [“Hate Literature Laws Sweep the U.S. and Other Western Democracies,” The Christian World Report (April, 1989), pg.1.]
Hate Crimes in Waco
The revelations in the media about the governments attack on Branch Davidians in Waco Texas is not news to myself and many others. We have been saying all along that the federal government overstepped reasonable bounds when they launched an all out attack on the Branch Davidian compound resulting in the killing of eighty-six men, women and children.
What motivated the government to launch the attack in the first place? At the time, they said it was because of reports of child abuse. When that contention was disproved, they said it was because the Davidians were amassing illegal guns. Even that accusation was never proved. I would suggest they stormed the compound because they clearly had serious political and philosophical differences with David Koresh and his followers. As the events played out over the following weeks, the government brought to bear its full psychological and military weapons in a futile attempt to gain Koresh’s surrender. Ultimately the decision was made by someone in the government (and Janet Reno took responsibility for it) to force the situation with an FBI led assault using grenade launchers that ended in the firey deaths of most of the occupants. As researcher Carol Moore put it, “There is no doubt that Mount Carmel was systematically turned into a fire trap. The only question is, was it done through criminal negligence or with intention to commit mass murder?”
If that is not a hate crime, I wonder what is?
It is becoming painstakingly clear that collectivists in our government are attempting to persuade the American people that any action that conflicts with their socialist policies will be labeled a “hate crime” and punishable by the federal government. All the while, they promote the very “hate” they say they are combating.
Are they being successful?
Well, after the shootings at Columbine High in Colorado where 13 students were killed, there was a huge public outcry that something be done… but when 24 children were murdered in Waco, there was hardly a whimper from the public.
When Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. are murdered, not only was there a huge public outcry but Congress stepped in and passed draconian hate crime laws… but when millions of babies are killed in their mothers womb and Planned Parenthood is video taped selling aborted baby parts, few voices complained and in fact demanded the proof of these atrocities be removed from the public sphere.
When Alex Jones questions the official narrative surrounding the Sandy Hook shootings, he’s labeled a hate monger, a racist, a conspiracy theorist, and his website and social media presence is silenced… but when demonic rituals are portrayed in social media, it is lauded as open mindedness and promoted as entertainment.
Why is that?
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Hate Crimes legislation criminalizes perceived thoughts rather than overt actions. Wherever people cross the line from thought or speech to violent action, they should be prosecuted and the courts have traditionally only stepped in when someone did cross that line. Today, however, they are trying to move that line to encompass your feelings, thoughts, opinions, and beliefs.
This philosophy is straight out of George Orwell’s 1984. The “Thought Police” are going to determine what is in your head and heart. If you fail the test your crime becomes a “hate crime”.
