Hate Crime Bill Passes in the Senate!

This is the best news I have heard in a long time.  In what will infuriate many anti-gay activists, the Hate Crime Legislation is called the Matthew Shepherd Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (they don’t like it because they don’t believe that Matthew Shepherd was tortured and killed because he was gay). Oh well.  Of course now it is all up to Bush.  He can’t really veto it unless he does a line-item veto since the bill was attached to his precious Dept. of Defense bill.  It will certainly be interesting to see the reactions from those who would rather have gays and lesbians wiped out…
