    This post deals more with Freedom of Religion and Speech than it does with sexuality, so I pray that it is allowed to inform our brothers and sisters in Christ about the preservation of such Freedoms.

    The following Web page has been updated with a Christian Politics Alert and Update from the American Family Association of Pennsylvania as well as from the Repent America Ministry:

    Freedom of Speech and of Religion go hand-in-hand.

    Use this Letter to the Editor for Your Editors (Pa.)

    Dear Baptist brothers and sisters in Christ in Pennsylvania, feel free to use this text for letters to editors of your local newspapers. Includes constitutional analysis to protect Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech. This issue is applicable to all states, especially in light of recent federal bills aiming at the same issue.

    To the Editor,

    On November 15, 2007 in a 4-1 decision, Pennsylvania's Commonwealth Court struck down amendments to Pennsylvania's expanded hate crimes law, declaring that the amendments enacted in 2002 were "unconstitutional and therefore null and void,” as the bill was deviously introduced for crop destruction and strategically morphed by its sponsors and supporters into one that criminalizes citizens for their religion-inspired speech.

    The legal challenge to the law stemmed from the arrests and imprisonment of eleven innocent Christians who, in the words of Pennsylvania's Constitution and the law, were imprisoned because they "worshiped Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences" through public "communication or address" that admonished such sin as sodomy, lesbianism, pedophilia, bestiality, and other such lifestyles, and this communication was "perceived" by the plaintiffs, police, and employees of the state to be "harassment by communication" "toward the actual or perceived… sexual orientation of another individual or group of individuals."

    Governor "Burn the Constitution" Rendell is already calling on the legislature “to immediately approve appropriate legislation reinstating the measure;” therefore, I implore you to fight for your freedom of speech and religion by learning about this critical issue, how this law violates Pennsylvania Constitution Article 1 Sections 1, 3, 7, 25, and 26, at www.ErichLukas.com, where you can contact your state senator and representative to stop any such legislation that imprisons innocent citizens and terminates your freedom.
