Rev. Ted Pike: Biography
Rev. Ted Pike is director of the National Prayer Network, a Christian/conservative watchdog organization. He is a 1971 graduate of Portland State University, with emphasis in art and philosophy. He is also an accomplished filmmaker, poet, sculptor, and painter. Some of his paintings are presently featured in the ninth annual edition of New Art International by Bookart Press.
He has appeared on more than 230 radio and TV talk shows since August 2004, educating the public concerning the danger to free speech posed by "anti-hate" laws. Such programs include numerous appearances with Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, Joyce Riley -- Dave Von Kleist, Derry Brownfield, Dr. Stanley Monteith, Jack Blood, Rick Adams, Daryl Bradford Smith and John Stadtmiller.
Rev. Ted Pike's outreach is largely responsible for international publicity concerning the arrest and imprisonment of 11 Christians in Philadelphia on October 10, 2004. They were threatened with 47 years in prison for the "hate crime" of publicly witnessing to homosexuals.
Rev. Pike is also the primary national opponent to federal hate crimes legislation, proposed by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. He and his National Prayer Network have played a pivotal role in defeating such legislation the last four times it has been introduced in Congress.
In the tradition of Christ and the Hebrew prophets, Rev. Pike is an outspoken critic of ADL's evil Jewish leadership. Yet his Biblical balance, upholding God's long-term destiny for redemption of a Jewish remnant at the Second Coming of Christ, commends Rev. Pike's message to listeners. Although he has spoken to many millions, he continues to receive relatively little criticism from either Christians or Jews. On the contrary, countless listeners are deeply appreciative of his timely warnings against hate laws and his exposure of those who have created them.
Today, ADL/B'nai B'rith hate law bureaucracies are proliferating throughout the world, ending free speech and free talk radio. This has happened in Canada, England, France, Germany, Australia, etc. With establishment of B'nai B'rith's "Department of Global Anti-Semitism" in the U.S. State Department and a 55-nation hate crimes bureaucracy centered in Europe, the "Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe," the threat to free speech posed by hate laws is an increasingly urgent subject for discussion for talk radio, especially for shows with Internet access.
Decades of research and activism have resulted in the production of a book and multiple video documentaries. Rev. Ted Pike, as no other, has the expertise and experience to explain the very complicated subject of hate laws in a manner that is lively, inoffensive, and easy to understand.
