The "Hate Crimes Act" that the House of representatives passed has gone to the Senate. It looks like their going to hide it as an amendment to another bill.
Mostly because there is quite a bit of opposition to outlawing thoughts and opinions.
What's truely disturbing to me is the House's refusal to pass an amendment protecting the excercise of free speech to condemn pedophiles. Really--the Dems i ncontrol of the house refused to protect our right to freedom of speech, if we used that right to condemn pedophiles.
So here goes: PEDOPHILES ARE THE SCUM OF SOCIETY, HORRIBLE, EVIL PREDATORS, WHO SHOULDN'T ENJOY EVEN THE RIGHT TO LIVE WHERE THEY CHOOSE! tHEY SHOULDN'T HAVE ANY PROTECTION IN THE WORKPLACE EITHER! IF I HAD THE POWER TO FIRE SOMEONE, AND KNEW THEY WERE A PEDO, I'D FIRE THEIR ASS! sOME THINGS ARE SO EVIL AND DISORDERED WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO TOLERATE IT AT ALL, OR THE PRACTICIONERS THEREOF!
OK--now go ahead and arrest me you oppressive facilitators homofascism!
