Judith Reisman, Ph.D.
A renowned expert on the life and work of sex scientist Alfred Kinsey, widely considered the “father of the sexual revolution,” says the “hate crimes” bill pending in Congress would be just another step in the conversion of the United States into a nation without sexual limits, where polygamy, incest and worse are common practice.
Judith Reisman says it would be a nation in which those who hold religious views that do not approve of homosexual behavior and the myriad other sexual lifestyles would be censored and arrested.
Since the 1980s, Reisman has exhaustively investigated and debunked the “research” of Kinsey, best known for his 1948 and 1953 books about human sexual behavior.
Now she is warning the pending S. 909 in the U.S. Senate would lurch the nation towards a society that imposes no limits on homosexuals, lesbians, pedophiles and others who pursue various “philias” or “isms.”
A hearing on the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, already approved by the U.S. House as H.R. 1913 and pending in the Senate as S. 909, is expected soon in the Senate Judiciary Committee. It’s been described by opponents at the “Pedophile Protection Act,” because majority Democrats in the House refused to approve an amendment specifying that pedophiles would not be protected under the proposal that provides special protections for homosexuals.
Essentially the plan would apply additional federal criminal penalties on people who either attack those in the specially protected sexual classes, say something that offends them or are accused of saying something that offends.
Reisman said where homosexuality has been legalized, marriage as a union between a man and a woman marginalized and schools advocate for the homosexual lifestyle, there are all kinds of social changes.
“That’s exactly what’s happening in the U.S. now,” she told WND.
“The whole ‘hate crimes’ component comes alongside that, where we find those sodomy laws eliminated, we find the charges of ‘hate crimes,’” she said. “Following in concert [are assaults] against anyone who speaks to the issue of homosexuality.”
It’s already well under way in the U.S. she said, with the Texas case in which the U.S. Supreme Court found a constitutional right to homosexual sodomy, a state Supreme Court justice in California forecasting the advocacy of polygamy and incest, and the fact that Christian ministries already must censor their messages to meet Canada’s “hate crimes” laws, which are seen as foreshadowing likely U.S. laws.
“Hate crimes,” she said, “is just a big piece of the whole puzzle.”
WND previously reported the huge Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family Christian ministry already has begun editing its radio program for Canada to conform to the nation’s “hate crime” laws.
In a statement attributed to Gary Booker, director of global content creation for Focus, the organization confirmed that broadcast standards have a “dynamic nature.”
“Our staff at Focus on the Family Canada works proactively to stay abreast of the dynamic nature of broadcast standards, Canadian Revenue Agency legislation and both national and provincial human rights laws,” the statement said.
“Parameters regarding what can be said (and how it should be said) are communicated by Focus on the Family Canada to our content producers here at Focus on the Family in the U.S. To the best of our ability, programming is then produced with Canadian law in mind,” Focus continued.
“Occasionally, albeit very rarely, some content is identified that, while acceptable for airing in the U.S. would not be acceptable under Canadian law and is therefore edited or omitted in Canada,” Focus said.
Reisman also agreed that the dissent in the 2008 California Supreme court ruling that called for the institutionalization of same-sex marriages raised concerns.
In the dissent to that opinion, Associated Justice Marvin R. Baxter wrote, and Associate Justice Ming W. Chin, joined in expressing concerns: “The majority … simply does not have the right to erase, then recast, the age-old definition of marriage, as virtually all societies have understood it, in order to satisfy its own contemporary notions of equality and justice. The California Constitution says nothing about the rights of same-sex couples to marry. On the contrary, as the majority concedes, our original Constitution, effective from the moment of statehood, evidenced an assumption that marriage was between partners of the opposite sex,” Baxter wrote at the time.
“Who can say that, in 10, 15, or 20 years, an activist court might not rely on the majority’s analysis to conclude, on the basis of a perceived evolution in community values, that the laws prohibiting polygamous and incestuous marriages were no longer constitutionally justified?” Baxter said.
Under such a progression, the age of consent soon would be lowered, allowing more adults to prey on children, Reisman warned.
“This always comes back to Kinsey,” Reisman told WND. “There’s no way to avoid it.”
WND has reported that although not widely reported, it has been proven today beyond dispute that Kinsey based his research – which concluded that 95 percent of American men in 1948 were sexual criminals – on interviews with thousands of prisoners and prostitutes, fraudulently claiming them to be normal, middle class “Greatest Generation” Americans. He also “discovered” that children are sexual from birth and documented his “research findings” with the meticulous notes of serial pedophiles who sexually molested children as young as two months of age, documenting for Kinsey the toddlers’ “sexual responses” and timing them with a stopwatch.
What would be next once “hate crimes” laws become common?
“We already see public torture in our films,” Reisman said. “That’s a public activity.”
And what else?
Reisman cited a report from DutchNews and others about Yvonne van Hertum, who has been sentenced to four months in jail, with two months suspended, for “publishing false allegations about a man on a website.”
The reports said the jail time was imposed as a deterrent after the woman published a man’s identity alleging that he had engaged in erotic chat sessions on the Internet with a minor.
According to a translator, Micha Kat, who provided an English copy of the Dutch YouTube video, Van Hertum even was banned from providing evidence in her case and has launched a website called Stop Kinder Sex.
WND has reported Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, says he fought the so-called “Hate Crimes” bill as it moved through the U.S. House because it essentially will provide a level of protection for sexual deviancy in the U.S. that is not afforded any other behavior.
“Americans need to know what’s going on here in Washington,” he said, “when we get these radical positions … the public needs to know.”
He said the bill provides protection for those with “sexual orientation” issues but then doesn’t define the terms. So he said it’s apparent that all of the 547 ‘philias’ – or as he described them “deviancies” – would be protected under the law.
“Anything you can imagine, no matter how revolting it might be,” King said.
King also warned the bill provides federal money to have the Justice Department help local law enforcement agencies enforce their own “hate crimes” laws.
“A pastor might be preaching from Leviticus or Romans; that could be a direct violation of a city ordinance,” he said. “Under Title 18 in the federal code, if you are shown to aid, abet, to counsel or to in some way influence one of those ‘incidents,’ you are as guilt as the principal,” he said.
“We could see pastors thrown in jail for a decade for the content of their sermons,” he warned.
WND has reported multiple times on the developing legislation – a plan that failed under President Bush when he determined it was unnecessary and most likely unconstitutional.
Radio talk icon Rush Limbaugh has warned his audience about the advancing threat of “hate crimes” laws.
“Some people are going to be put in jail for things that they say,” he said. “Hate crime legislation. That’s where they determine what’s in your mind when you commit a crime. That’s when they decide what you were thinking … If you were thinking unapproved thoughts, that would make the crime you committed even worse.”
Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., confirmed that anyone with any “disability or all of these ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ … need not live in fear.”
President Obama, supported strongly during his campaign by homosexual advocates, appears ready to respond to their desires.
“I urge members on both sides of the aisle to act on this important civil rights issue by passing this legislation to protect all of our citizens from violent acts of intolerance,” he said.
