Perez repeatedly refuses to answer question posed by U.S. Rep. Trent Franks
This major issue primarily revolves around the idea contained in a proposal that has been made many times in the United Nations by Islamic-led interests. The concept is that there should be a “Defamation of Religions” international law that would criminalize negative speech about any religion, although the proposals have always focused on Islam.
The idea is “nothing more than an effort to achieve special protections for Islam — a move to stifle religious speech,” according to an analysis by Jay Sekulow Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice.
“This is a battle for our basic freedoms,” Carl Moeller, chief of Open Doors USA warned. “This [U.N. idea] is Orwellian in its deviousness. He said Muslim nations would use it as an endorsement of their attacks on Christians for statements as simple as their belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ, which Muslims consider an affront. Worse would be the “chilling” effect on language that the U.N. plan would create worldwide, he said. “This would be a huge blessing to those who would silence dissidents in their country’s Islamic regimes,” he said. “This stands as a monument to the gullibility of the masses in the United States and other places who don’t see this for what it is.”
Rebuffing support of religious free speech during a July 27 congressional hearing, Tom Perez, Obama’s far Left Assistant Attorney General who runs the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department, refused four times to answer this simple question posed by Arizona Republican Congressman Trent Franks, chair of the House Constitution subcommittee:
“Will you tell us here today simply that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?” Watch this video and listen to Perez’s waffle.
WND’s Bob Unruh has written a riveting article about the far-reaching consequences of this issue. Read it in its entirety HERE.
Perez is the Obama administration’s front man behind the politically motivated lawsuit filed against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The reason? The sheriff actually enforces the immigration laws that DOJ is supposed to uphold.
