UPDATE: Homosexual Attorneys from Justice Department Advise Philadelphia Police On Arresting Christians One Internet news service says not to expect an investigation because of the involvement of the Justice Department homosexual attorneys
A few days ago I wrote you about the situation in Philadelphia in which four Christians were arrested. They are charged with eight crimes, including three felonies: possession of instruments of crime (a bullhorn), ethnic intimidation (saying that homosexuality is a sin), and inciting a riot (reading from the Bible some passages relating to homosexuality) despite the fact that no riot occurred.
They face a possible 47 years in prison and fines of $90,000 each. Now we have learned more about this horrible travesty of justice.
According to WorldNetDaily, "Homosexual attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department Civil Rights Division not only attended (the) large homosexual event but they advised police on the scene who arrested 11 Christian protesters, says a source in the agency." (Charges against some of the Christians have been dropped.)
The WorldNetDaily article went on to say the U.S. Justice Department is "not likely to take up the cause of the five criminally charged Christians who believe Philadelphia officials violated their civil rights."
Did you catch that? The Justice Department will refuse to investigate the treatment of the arrested Christians because some homosexual attorneys from the Justice Department were advising the Philadelphia police on how to arrest the Christians!!!!
WorldNetDaily, quoting their source inside the Justice Department, said the Christians were charged with "ethic intimidation (hate crimes) 'at the recommendation of some of our (Department of Justice) attorneys who were at the march.'"
In fact, Chief Inspector Tiano, who serves as liaison to the homosexual community, testified at the preliminary hearing that he met at least four times with the organizers of the Outfest event in anticipation of the protesters' activities, presumably to discuss how to handle the "Christians" when they showed up at the event. He also said he had 40 officers on site that day. He did not meet with any of the Christians!
There appears to be collusion in this travesty of justice that goes to high levels of both the Justice Department and Philadelphia. A trail date will be set soon.
Would you stand with these Christians who are defending our constitutional right of free speech? We are asking you to stand with these four Christians.
Correction: Tiano DID "meet with Christians" -- TO ARREST THEM!
The person of
Chief Inspector Uber-Fuehrer Tiano is the Heinrich Himmler for the Gay "Legal" Cabal of Philadephia.
Zeig Heil, Herr Tiano!
Islam is a religion of peace.
Queers are a movement of peace.
Any questions ?
Thanks for that link.
There is also a way to send an email directly to the Justice Department by going to the AFA page link posted in the heading of this thread.
(This is the link I wanted to put in but couldn't.)
We got to stick together, it will be us next!
An antichristian gay agenda? Nawwww, couldn't be! </sarc>
Thought I read that the charges were dismissed.
Thanks for your technical talent. :)
And yes, we hear the sound of approaching boots.......
(Some FReepers will think we're exaggerating, but it is sometimes little by little that the dam breaks.)
I went to your link, and someone posted there saying that this is still not over.
They posted this link for further info:
We should all email the justice dept. and our congressmen and senators and DEMAND an investigation into this. This is an extremely serious situation. When I first heard the story, I didn't know the ones prosecuting the case were homosexual and I couldn't understand how something like this could possibly happen in the US. But after more of the story came out it became clear how it could happen. Because of everyone's fears of lawsuits for "discrimination", governments are forced to hire homosexuals who will use their office for a personal agenda and not to do the job they were hired to do. People need to be fired over this incident. If not, this is only the beginning of what the homosexual agenda will be able to accomplish. I do not believe the government should condone homosexuality.
Other posts on that previous thread are saying charges WERE dropped, but the people were not acquitted.
I'll keep looking. I don't want to be posting an out-of-date thread.
If anyone else has updated info on this, it would be great if you'd post a link or something for us here.
"Thought I read that the charges were dismissed."
I'm trying to find out for sure.
ProLife/Breakpoint personal prerogative Ping!
The articles I've found on google so far seem to all say that charges were dropped just against seven people, but four people were still charged.
Here is a quote from an article by Michael J. Gaynor, written January 6, 2005:
"Last October 10, eleven Christians associated with Repent America began preaching and singing at OutFest, a homosexual street event.
The Christians, led by Repent America founder Michael Marcavage, were surrounded by the Pink Angels, a group of homosexuals who held up Styrofoam signs, blocking the group.
Police arrested only the Christians.
Last month, after viewing a videotape of the incident, Municipal Court Judge William Austin Meehan dropped charges against six other defendants, including a 72-year-old grandmother.
The eleventh, a juvenile, is awaiting separate court action.
The Philadelphia city prosecutor in the case, Charles Ehrlich, called the defendants "hateful" and referred to preaching the Bible as "fighting words."
The four adult defendants face a total of 47 years in prison if convicted of the three felonies and five misdemeanors with which they were charged.
They pled not guilty.
According to Mr. Knight: The felony charges in particular are outrageous. Were talking about expressing an opinion in a public area. This shows why hate crime laws are a threat to the freedoms of speech and assembly, and are a tool for crushing Christian evangelism. (end of quoted Gaynor material).
Another Jan. 6 article, found at the Christian Post, states basically the same thing, that four people are still facing charges. Here is the link for that article:
I'll keep searching to see if something else is more recent.
