Carolyn McCarthy seems to hates Christians.

Honest!. This simpleton of a politician has put forth a bill saying the following
McCarthy's bill amends current law to state that a person "convicted in any court, including any foreign court, of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year" shall not be able to possess a firearm.
So why does this show an anti-Christian bias?

Because if she gets her way many convicted of crimes will lose a right for being Christians.
Saudi Arabia
Crimes subject to the death sentence included murder, apostasy from Islam, adultery, drug smuggling, and sabotage. Under certain conditions, rape and armed robbery could also lead to execution. Executions could be carried out by beheading, firing squad, or stoning of the convicted person in a drugged state. All seventeen executions carried out in 1990 were by beheading.
So becoming a Christian in Saudi Arabia could lead to your death, or at minimum more then a year in jail. Commit the crime of being Christian and lose that firearm.
Pakistan
Use of derogatory remarks, etc; in respect of the Holy Prophet. Whoever by words, either spoken or written or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuation, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) shall be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall also be liable to fine.
Say something bad about their prophet and go to jail for life. So even if you get out for some reason you end up losing a right here in the US.

How about simply saying that the president of Turkey is a turkey.
Turkey
Article 158--(Amended: 1961/235)

Whoever insults the President of the Republic face-to-face or through cursing shall face a heavy penalty of not more than three years.

If the insulting or cursing happens in the absence of the President of the Republic, those who commit the crime will be liable to imprisonment of between one and three years. Even if the name of the President of the Republic is not directly mentioned, allusion and hint shall be considered as an attack made directly against the President if there is presumptive evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that the attack was made against the President of Turkey.
Or should we enforce Chinese laws like this.
CHINA
A Hong-Kong based human rights group said Mr Li, 38, was detained last May delivering 16,000 bibles to an underground Christian group called the Shouters.

Mr Li's trial is expected to start next week. He is reportedly charged with propagating a "heretical cult", and might face the death penalty.

Maybe people should lose their rights because they sang a song.
Lebanon
The highly-publicised trial of Lebanese singer and Arab icon, Marcel Khalife, accused of insulting Islam for putting Qur'anic verse to music, has highlighted one of the most controversial issues in Lebanon -- the role of religion in politics.
............
chief investigating magistrate in Beirut, Abdel-Rahman Chehab, a Sunni, indicted the singer last month and requested that he be sent to jail for up to three years on blasphemy charges.
Thankfully he was found innocent.

So simple acts of belief and speech, things we hold dear here, will lose you the right to carry or own firearms. This is a bad law, for Christians in a lot of the world. Heck, this is a bad law for people here, Christians or not.

Do you want your rights here in the US defined by the laws of foreign countries? You need to call her now people and give her a few examples on why this bill is criminal.

What is strange is that she throws this bone out in her press release.
McCarthy’s bill allows the courts to determine the validity of foreign convictions in disputed cases. “This clause will protect individuals convicted in courts of questionable jurisdiction or legitimacy,” said McCarthy.
Since most courts are government based this will have little effect.
