The "˜Chilling Effect' on Free Speech of the Coroners and Justice Bill and How You can Help to Stop It
The offence of "˜inciting hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation' is part of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 ("˜CJI Act'). Lord Waddington successfully inserted a free speech clause into that Act, which clause 61 (formerly clause 58) of the Coroners and Justice Bill now seeks to remove. Clause 61 has been passed by the Commons. It reads as follows:
A San Diego pastor and his wife have been told they cannot have a Bible study in their home. The couple says they were interrogated by a San Diego County official, then threatened with ever increasing fines if they refuse to stop the Bible study. (See news article here)
With the rising level of intolerance against Christians in the UK (note the recent cases whereby people have lost jobs/careers for matters of conscience...or where the 5-year old primary schoolgirl was told off for telling her friend about Jesus)...is it wise to allow our identity and movements to be monitored so closely by any government quite so closely?
Your phone calls are urgently needed now! President Obama has nominated David Ogden to be the second person in command in the U.S. office of the Attorney General! Ogden must be confirmed by the Senate.
Call your two senators and tell them to vote against the Ogden nomination. Ogden is no friend of the family
