Hate Crime Legislation Passes in the House

This is good news.  Now it is off to the Senate, where it sounds like it has a good chance of passing.  Then on to the Nobel Winning President, who will sign it.  Finally.  It won’t make some people happy, but I fail to see how some can’t be happy when one group of people gets protection under the law.  Religion is protected under the Hate Crime.  Race is protected.  Now Sexual Orientation will be covered at the Federal level.  Well, I can see how some won’t be happy.  Any legal recognition of the glbt community will mean that we actually do exist as people.  That is pretty frightening to some.  Oh well.  Get used to it.  We’re here and we exist.  They will also have to accept that violence occurs to glbt people purely because of who they are.
