Rod Parsley on Hate Crimes

In checking out the stats for this website I have noticed many people come here after doing a search for web pages about Rev. Rod Parsley, who is the pastor of the mega World Harvest Church and host of the show Breakthrough. Since he helped Ken Blackwell lose the Ohio governorship in 2006, Parsley has been low key. But here is your bone Parsley searchers.

People For the American Way reports that Parsley used his TV show to complain about the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 being considered in Congress. He claims that the law would be used to silence religious speech.

As PFAW points out:

Of course, when you “pull the mask back” on the Religious Right’s campaign against the bill, you find something completely different: a law that would only apply to violent crimes, and that specifically states that it does not apply to speech or religious expression.

If you want to read more about it and see a video of the segment of his show where Parsley talks about the law see the following link:
