ONE NEWS NOW — Rep's kind words encourage family advocate

April 26, 2010
“‘We’re gratified to receive Congressman King’s letter,’ (AFA-Michigan President Gary) Glenn comments. ‘He’s known across the nation as a stalwart defender of religious freedom, of Judeo-Christian values, and so to have someone of his stature commend us for taking a stand against this so-called ‘hate crimes’ law is certainly gratifying. …If you talk to homosexual activists, they are very clear and very plain about their intent for the use of hate crimes laws,’ Glenn notes. ‘It is to be used against individuals who merely speak out, who dare oppose their public policy agenda.'”

Rep’s kind words encourage family advocate
by Charlie Butts

A congressman has extended encouraging words to initiators of a federal lawsuit against the hate crimes” law.

Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, tells OneNewsNow the letter came from Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa).

“We’re gratified to receive Congressman King’s letter,” Glenn comments. “He’s known across the nation as a stalwart defender of religious freedom, of Judeo-Christian values, and so to have someone of his stature commend us for taking a stand against this so-called ‘hate crimes’ law is certainly gratifying.”

The letter was unsolicited, and the AFA-Michigan president goes on to say that the hate crimes law is dangerous to the nation and to people of faith because it forces the courts to become thought police.

“If you talk to homosexual activists, they are very clear [and] very plain about their intent for the use of hate crimes laws,” Glenn notes. “It is to be used against individuals who merely speak out, who dare oppose their public policy agenda.”

Although the U.S. has constitutional protections for speech, Canada’s hate crimes law offers an example of the possible outcome. Several people there have been taken before a human rights commission for speaking against the homosexual lifestyle, one being a youth pastor who was just commenting on what the Bible says about it.
