    Hate crimes' fate now up to people

    A Texas member of Congress is warning Americans that unless they act – and act now – the nation soon will have a "hate crimes" law that actually was written so that it protects pedophiles and others with alternative sexual orientations such as voyeurism and exhibitionism.

    "If you guys don't raise enough stink there's not chance of stopping it," U.S. Rep. Louis Gohmert said today on a radio program with WND columnist Janet Porter. She's the chief of the Faith2Action Christian ministry and has coordinated a campaign to allow citizens to send overnight letters to members of the U.S. Senate... snip

    He said he fought in committee and in the House, where it was approved 249-175, to correct some of the failings, including his repeated requests for definitions in the bill for terms such as "sexual orientation."

    Majority Democrats refused, he said. He said that leaves the definition up to a standard definition in the medical field, which includes hundreds of "philias" and "isms" and would be protected.

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., a "hate crimes" supporter, confirmed that worry, saying:

    This bill addresses our resolve to end violence based on prejudice and to guarantee that all Americans regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability or all of these 'philias' and fetishes and 'ism's' that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are. I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule…"

    President Obama, supported strongly during his campaign by homosexual advocates, appears ready to respond to their desires.

    "I urge members on both sides of the aisle to act on this important civil rights issue by passing this legislation to protect all of our citizens from violent acts of intolerance," he said.


    But Gohmert pointed out that if an exhibitionist flashes a woman, and she responds by slapping him with her purse, he has probably committed a misdemeanor while she has committed a federal felony hate crime.

    "That's how ludicrous this situation is," Gohmert said.

    Oh Aliccccceeeee, laws don't ensure the protection of ANYTHING.

    Aren't these the same idiots who claim that you cannot legislate morality?

    Laws don't protect, they just punish and those two are very different things. Tell that to law makers and they look at you funny.

    On a side note. At what point are the enough laws? The seem to keep adding new ones and never getting rid of the old ones.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
