This will just never end until someone starts asking deeper questions of these faux-christians when they take to the airwaves. In the latest email alert from the Family Research Council, they spew out more crap, and it sounds amazingly like the crap spewed out by Exodus. It is no surprise–despite the fact that Tony Perkins, the president of the FRC bought the KKK list, Randy Thomas of Exodus is constantly defending Perkins. Sad, because Randy seems like an intelligent person–I can’t understand how someone like him could be against hate crime legislation and on top of that, support that racist Tony Perkins. But I’ve stopped trying to understand him since anytime I have any contact with him, I usually receive some kind of slapdown…
Here are the latest lies:
Family Values or the Liberal Status Quo?
May 2, 2007 | Refer a Friend
In the 2006 elections a number of Democrat candidates won their races by vowing to uphold a "family values" platform. These values include a belief in the sanctity of life, support of traditional marriage and a promise to defend the rights and values of the constituents who ultimately put them in office. Their vows are being put to the test this Thursday as the House of Representatives votes on the "hate crimes" bill, H.R. 1592.
This bill creates a caste system within American society where those who fit a certain category – ranging from race, disability, gender to sexual orientation and transgendered – would be seen as deserving special legal protection. The bill is most notable for the millions of Americans it leaves out, meaning if you or I are a victim of a violent crime – we matter less.
All Members of the 110th Congress (which included a number of self proclaimed "family values" candidates) took an oath swearing to uphold the U.S. Constitution, which calls for EQUAL justice under the law.
Call these Representatives TODAY to say equal protection under the law means equal protection for ALL.
This is pretty much what Randy Thomas says–that hate crimes make some people get special rights. What Perkins and Thomas does not tell you is that religion, which they claim to have, is a protected right. Since I am not a Christian, according to their own twisted logic, I am less important than they are, since they have that special protection. Notice too that Perkins thinks that race, disability, and orientation make someone more special (and notice that religion did not make his list!).
And notice too that whoever wrote this for Perkins (unless he actually wrote this himself) states that family values, traditional marriage, and the defense of rights and values is just the opposite of this important hate crime legislation. This just doesn’t make any sense if you think about it. There is no ‘special rights’ given to those protected groups. If you hate, and if you cause a crime to occur that is based on hate, then you deserve to be punished. Notice too that Perkins isn’t calling this a ‘thought crime’ any more. Maybe the truth is finally getting out to those who are actually going to be making the decision whether or not this will become law.
What a joke and it just pisses me off to no end that people like this have access to the government. Their lies are despicable. They have no values, let alone ‘family values.’ Why doesn’t Perkins fight to have all groups taken out of the hate crime legislation and fight to have the whole thing dumped in the trash? Why? Because he knows he is protected under the category of religion…
