Open season on Christians
By Donald Hank

When is hate not hate? Why, when the victims are not victims.

Make sense? It does to the Left in America, where, according to an analysis by Public Advocate, a church that is torched by homosexual activists is, in today's terms, not a victim of anything because only "gays" can be the victims, so when they commit crimes, well, that is just — irrelevant, because it is apparently fine and dandy to hate Christians in the United States of America today.

In the case of the Wasilla church, arsonists attacked when they knew there were women and children inside. They didn't care if people were killed. The only thing that mattered to them was their own lusts and a lifestyle known to be lethal.

There is a way that seemeth right unto man but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Here is what the Washington Times said in its report on the crime:

    The 1,000-member evangelical church was the subject of intense scrutiny after Palin was named John McCain's running mate. Early in Palin's campaign, the church was criticized for promoting in a Sunday bulletin a Focus on the Family "Love Won Out Conference" in Anchorage. The conference promised to "help men and women dissatisfied with living homosexually understand that same-sex attractions can be overcome."

According to the Illinois Family Institute, gay activists have been threatening to use arson to get their way. Their web site provides damning quotes and links to pro-"gay" forums where activists actually call for homosexuals dissatisfied with the results for Prop 8 (denying the redefinition of marriage) to torch buildings associated with persons known to oppose same-sex "marriage."

After the cited calls to violence appeared on pro-"gay" sites, lo and behold, Sara Palin's church, known for its defense of traditional marriage, was torched and almost totally destroyed. Some people were inside, including several children, when the arsonists did their dirty deed. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the arsonists actually intended to murder these innocent people.

Now you know when hate is not hate.

But do you know when enough is enough?

Scots Government set to weaken age of consent

Here it comes! The UK has already seen the legalization of "gay" marriage. Now comes the next stage — legalized pederasty. And if you look at the names of the Scotts who are behind this, I bet to dollars to donuts they are some of the same ones who supported same-sex marriage.

This goes hand in hand with the article about the Nassau PTA official who was caught with her panties down with a 13 year old boy in her car.

The "gay" agenda will pave the way for legalized pederasty. That is why we need to ask, in our debate with "gay" activists, what is the difference between what they espouse and pederasty.

I asked a member of the Center on the First Amendment (don't recall name exactly) that in an email exchange, and he could not answer. When I tried to pin him down, he stopped writing.

From our friends in the UK:

Scots Government set to weaken age of consent

The Scottish Government is moving head with plans to water down Scotland's age of consent law.

The plans are contained in the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Bill, currently making its way through the Scottish Parliament.

Britain's age of consent laws, which prohibit sexual activity under 16, are largely the result of the campaigns of 19th Century Christian, Josephine Butler.

She cared for damaged prostitutes and recognised that a robust age of consent law was needed to protect young girls from sexual exploitation.

Last month The Christian Institute presented evidence before the Justice Committee at the Scottish Parliament.

Please pray for The Christian Institute has we campaign against plans to weaken this important protection.

For more information about the Scottish Government's plans see:

Please forward this email to your friends.

Yours in Christ,
