The Anti-Defamation League is determined to establish federally-enforced promotion and protection of homosexuality in America’s primary and secondary public schools. This year ADL repeatedly boasted it was the driving force behind the pro-homosexual federal hate crimes bill. Now ADL is making another attempt to sodomize America. Their latest legislative poison is called The Student Nondiscrimination Act of 2010.
Like the hate law, HR 4530 gives grade and high school homosexual students special rights and protection over the majority. It claims to protect students who feel harassed or intimidated because of their homosexual orientation or desire to be perceived as the opposite gender. If they feel pressured to the point that they don’t want to participate in a school activity, the bill says these students deserve the same federal advocacy given blacks under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This bill also includes special protection to heterosexual students who feel harassed or intimidated to not associate with homosexuals. These students may also invite federal prosecution of their “homophobic” fellow students, teachers or parents.
HR 4530 says if school officials do nothing when they know a student is being harassed because of their homosexuality or heavily pressured not to associate with a homosexual student, these authorities face federal indictment. State and local governments which do not energetically educate and punish those who intimidate pro-gay students will lose federal funding.
There is no special protection for heterosexual students under assault for their sexuality. Like ADL’s hate law, ENDA and cyber-bullying bill, this legislation blatantly violates the 14 th amendment’s ban on special rights and protections to some over others.
While researching my video, Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians (Watch it here!), I had lengthy talks with Canadian police. I asked the head of the Vancouver, BC hate crimes unit what police did when they wanted to indict a right-wing “hater” who hadn’t violated the law.
“We just get him on a harassment charge,” she told me. She made it clear that the term “harassment” is so vague and subjective it can easily and legally be used to prosecute virtually any speech critical of others. With malicious intent, The Student Nondiscrimination Act does not adequately define “harassment” or “intimidation.” If this bill passes, these ambiguous terms will be enshrined in federal law providing an excellent pretext for persecution of Christian students and faculty.
Under this act, homosexual teens can decide when they’ve been sufficiently “harassed” or “intimidated.” A grade school boy or girl who thinks they are victimized can persuade their local liberal, feminist or gay district attorney and summon the force of federal intervention. If such “victimized” children want to launch civil lawsuits against students, parents or church leaders, this bill makes it clear nothing should prevent them. As in workplaces if ENDA is passed, school authorities will be afraid to provoke homosexual students in any way. Although penalties are not stipulated, HR 4530 is intended to expand the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and subsequent civil rights acts which contain harsh penalties for discrimination, including imprisonment.
There is no evidence that widespread harassment of homosexuals and transgenders in primary and secondary education is an “especially severe problem,” as the bill alleges—not with tolerance education and gay/straight activist groups abounding on campuses! As with their hate bill, ADL is exaggerating an “epidemic of hate” in public schools, dramatizing rare abuses to justify massive federal jurisdiction.
HR 4530 amounts to federal endorsement of adolescent homosexuality as a legitimate, normal alternative. It puts homosexuality on a par with race, religion and gender, characteristics which the government already protects. If passed, it will flood government-sponsored educational programs into public schools to promote homosexual self-esteem. Its encouragement of homosexuality on the grade school level will destroy young consciences even before they have formed.
Last year, ADL presented its David Ray Ritcheson Hate Crimes Prevention Act (See, ADL’s New ‘Trojan Horse’ Hate Bill) and adjunct legislation to the cyberbullying bill, the Adolescent Web Awareness Requires Education Act (AWARE) (See, Hate Bills: Protest Calls Flood House Judiciary!). Through these bills, the League tried to set up the federal government in pro-homosexual education and anti-bias hate crimes enforcement at every level of public schooling, from kindergarten to grad school. These attempts failed, but ADL’s determination is unwavering. In yet another attempt, before mid-term elections next fall, ADL hopes to quietly move HR 4530 through Congress unnoticed.
There is a good chance they can. Despite 41 Republicans in the Senate, five or six liberal Republicans could vote for it, just as they helped pass the hate bill last July. The Student Nondiscrimination Act, introduced by homosexual Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), and with 61 cosponsors, is now in the House Education and Labor Committee. This is the same committee which powerfully endorsed ENDA this fall. That’s because 18 of 19 Republican House members, not hearing much protest from the American people, didn’t even bother to show up.
We can’t let that happen again. This bill, slanted toward ostensible protection of America’s youth, is designed to pass without much controversy. Yet it is just as dangerous as ENDA and the cyber-bullying bill—setting up the federal government as a special protector and encourager of homosexuality to our nation’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens.
Call your House and Senate members at 1-877-851-6437 or toll, 1-202-225-3121. Also call crucially important members, especially Republicans, of the House, Education and Labor Committee (names available HERE at www.truthtellers.org). Tell them: “Please do not vote for the Student Nondiscrimination Act, HR 4530. This bill denies equal justice. It gives homosexual students special rights over other students, in violation of the 14 th Amendment to the Constitution. There is little evidence that persecution of homosexual students is a severe national problem meriting federal jurisdiction.”
Here is your vital last statement: “If the senator or congressperson votes for this dangerous legislation, I and my friends will vote out Democrats in the midterm election!”
