Speaker of the House fights to keep thought crime law

The Speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, John M. Perzel (R), has decided to fight against a Court's unanimous decision in favor of a lawsuit by Repent America (RA) against an addition to the Commonwealth's thought crime law.

On December 22, a three judge panel in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania unanimously ruled in favor of RA's legal challenge to the unconstitutional manner in which an addition to the Commonwealth's "hate crimes" law was passed. The Court rejected all of the Commonwealth parties' preliminary objections, propelling the case toward trial.

Please pray that RA is victorious over this motion, and that the lawsuit proceeds to trial for a full and fair opportunity to address the outrageous behavior by the legislature.

In October of 2004, the Pennsylvania thought crime law called "Ethnic Intimidation" was used to charge eleven Christians with RA in Philadelphia. The Christians were arrested and jailed while ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ at a homosexual event because the message offended those in attendance. The charge, along with a host of other charges, were later dismissed.
