Republican House Tacks Hate Crimes Amendment to Children's Safety Act
Commentary by Jim Day

    In what can only be characterized as an outrageous move that strikes at the heart of free speech and thought in America, the U.S. House of Representatives on September 14, 2005 approved HR 2662 (The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2005) adding it as an amendment to the Children’s Safety Act, (HR 3132) by a margin of 223-199. The amendment added three new group classifications of people to existing Federal hate crimes statutes for crimes “motivated by prejudice based on actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of the victim.” Current hate crimes law only includes stiffer penalties for Federal offenses when the attacker is motivated by the actual or perceived race, religion or ethnic background of the victim.
    The amendment to the Children’s Safety Act (HR 3132 – which, among other things, creates a national website for child sex offenders and stipulates that sex felons face up to 20 years in prison for failing to comply with registration requirements) was offered by Congressman John Conyers, (D) MI. Thirty Republicans, 192 Democrats and one Independent voted to add the amendment, while 194 Republicans and five Democrats voted against it. (The official recorded vote – Vote 469 – which shows how Missouri and Illinois Congressmen voted on this amendment is listed later in this commentary.)

Edgemont to Host Seminars No One Should Miss
By Jim Day

  Our culture has been undergoing drastic changes over the last several decades and, from a Christian perspective, they have been mostly for the worse. Abortion, homosexuality, pornography, promiscuity, illegal drug use, loss of individual freedoms and rights, and the centralization/expansion of government power have all been corrupting our Republic. The Church has been largely impotent in the face of these developments. Now change agents are gaining power in many churches, transforming them to their vision of what they think the Church should be instead of what God intended it to be, thus making the Church even more irrelevant in our culture than it now is. These changes are all necessary to effect the transformation of our culture from one based upon a Christian biblical foundation (a Christian Worldview) to one based upon atheistic, humanistic principles (a Secular, Humanist, Marxist Worldview).
     Several ministries and individuals teach about the conflicting worldviews battling for dominance in our nation. These ministries provide a great service teaching the what and in many cases the who regarding these worldviews. But they don’t explain precisely how and why the Christian Worldview is being eroded and transformed into a Secular, Humanist, Marxist Worldview. It is absolutely vital for Christians to understand that there is a common process and philosophy behind these changes.
