Speaking of…

Posted in Government & Politics by sosipater on May 2, 2007

Speaking of politics and religion the upcoming so called “Hate Crime Speech” bill is up for a vote soon.  Check out Justin Taylor’s post and subsequently Robert Gagnon’s comments. 

 Since genuine intimidation and violence is already covered by the existing legal code, the ultimate purpose of such a bill can only be to intimidate those who speak out against the endorsement of homosexual practice and transsexualism. In the current political climate—obvious cases in point are repeated oppressions of any who dare speak against homosexual practice in Canada, England, and Scandinavia, to say nothing of sectors of the United States—one cannot assume that there is a common definition of what constitutes hate against homosexual and transsexual persons. Any public words against homosexual practice will be treated legally as words that incite others to violence and/or discrimination against homosexual persons, and thus subject to criminal prosecution.

Also, I’ve been told you can call the switchboard at the U.S. Capitol in D.C. and ask for your U.S. Congressman in order to voice your opinion on this bill.  The number is 202-224-3121.
