Hundreds of thousands of letters have been dispatched to members of the U.S. Senate suggesting that the so-called “hate crimes” bill now pending before committee is the wrong way for the country to move.

WND columnist Janet Porter, who also heads the Faith2Action Christian ministry, launched the campaign to send thousands of letters to every senator by overnight delivery.

To date, some 4,500 people have participated, dispatching 450,000 letters to members of the Senate.

For only $10.95, any member of the public can send letters to all 100 senators, individually addressed and “signed” by the sender. The letters will ask for a written response and call for opposition to the bill, including by filibuster if necessary.

“Here is what the body of the letter says:

“I am writing to urge you to do all in your power to oppose passage of S.909, also known as ‘The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act.’

“Passage of this bill by the U.S. Senate would be reckless and irresponsible not only because of the ‘chilling effect’ it would have on First Amendment-guaranteed rights to free speech, but also because it would provide, for the first time ever, special legal protections for pedophiles and other sexual offenders.

“This bill would more appropriately be called ‘The Pedophile Protection Act.’

“The evidence for this extraordinary statement comes directly from debate in the House, when a simple amendment to exempt pedophiles from the protections offered by the bill were rejected.

“I write to warn you that those who support it, or allow it to become the law of the land without a fight, will be held accountable at election time.

“If there was ever a time for the Senate to stand and fight with a filibuster, that time is now. We are calling for members of the Senate, Republicans and Democrats alike, to stop S. 909.

“Stop ‘The Pedophile Protection Act’ dead in its tracks – now.

“Please respond to me in writing as to whether you intend to oppose this dangerous bill – including by filibuster if necessary.”

Judith Reisman, 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 U.S. into a nation without sexual limits, where polygamy, incest and worse are common practice.

She says it would be a nation in which those who hold religious views that do not approve of homosexual behavior and the myriad other alternative sexual lifestyles would be censored and arrested.

“If people think we are safe as a nation from this, they are watching too many films at night,” said Reisman, a Ph.D. researcher and scholar whose exposés of Kinsey have appeared in several books, including “Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences” and, most recently, a new DVD called “The Kinsey Syndrome.”

She is warning the pending S. 909 in the U.S. Senate would lurch the nation towards being 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.

WND has reported multiple times on the developing legislation, which 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.
