I’ve been waiting for this moment for a very long time. All that is left is for President Obama to pass it, and he will by the end of the month!!!
Now, let the hate crime bill do what it is supposed to do: penalize thoughts!!! 🙂 Sorry—I couldn’t resist. As anyone with a brain knows, the Hate Crime Legislation has nothing to do with criminalizing thoughts—only violence. All you have to do is read the bill. It specifically says (in order to appease the religious right who would rather the Hate Crime Bill not pass) that free speech is not involved.
Now on to other issues—getting rid of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Getting rid of the Defense of Marriage law.
