URGENT: Silencing Free Speech?

If you value freedom of speech in this country... and you should if you live here... READ HERE:

This is from the American Center for Law and Justice:


This is urgent. Your freedom of speech has literally never been so threatened as it is today.

Senate Bill 1 and House Resolution 4682 are clearly the work of politicians who want to control, limit, and silence Christians and conservative groups.

By classifying and regulating any Christian organization or church, which you may be a part of, as a "lobbyist" ...

... this legislation will forcibly restrict your right to free speech - which is absolutely unconstitutional.

I urge you to join our nationwide campaign by reading and signing our online PETITION OF PROTEST today and make your voice heard in this critical matter! House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading the charge of Congress on this legislation, and it is moving fast.

Hop over and sign that petition!

According to the ACLU, that provision in SB1 has been removed. See http://www.aclu.org/freespeech/gen/28074prs20070119.html

You can see the text of the bill by searching at Thomas:
http://thomas.loc.gov/

I didn't find HR 4682 in Thomas. I'm not sure what that means. But it would be worthwhile to check Thomas later to find out who sponsored that provision.

Thanks Jude! That is good to know. I agree that it would be good to know who made that provision. Let me know what you find out if you do!
