Christian Fundamentalists Move To Embrace Hate Speech
[link to www.towncalleddobson.com]

Remember, this is part of Bush's base:

"A hate crimes bill passed by the House yesterday, extending coverage to people victimized because of sexual orientation, gender identity or disability, is attracting opposition from an unusual coalition of Christian leaders.

Proponents say the bill - similar to one the Senate is expected to pass in the next few weeks - is a moral imperative. But some Christians are depicting it as a "thought crimes" bill attacking 1st Amendment freedoms of speech and religion. A coalition of evangelical, fundamentalist and black religious leaders is mounting a furious assault on the bill, airing television ads and mobilizing members to stop its progress. President Bush has said he might veto the measure.

If the bill, approved 237-180, were to become law, they say, a pastor could be held liable for giving a sermon against homosexuality if a listener later attacked a gay individual ."

Maybe preachers should stop with the Gay bashing? Hate crime is not a Constitutional right.

"The bill's supporters say that such an assertion is nonsense, and that a sermon could never be considered an inducement to violence unless it explicitly advocated it.

In addition to broadening the federal definition of a hate crime victim, the law provides funds so that local authorities can request federal assistance for prosecutions in the aftermath of a hate crime."

I think White Fundamentalist Christians are just mad because they can't lynch Blacks anymore.

Oh, and the clincher:

"This legislation strikes at the heart of free speech and freedom of religious expression," said Andrea Lafferty, executive director of the Traditional Values Coalition.

When did murdering Gays become religious expression?

Don't know about Jesus but it's obvious that god ain't perfect.

He invented the devil, preachers and Republicans.

What is wrong with saying what God's Word has to say about any subject, including homosexuality? You cannot stop the Word of God, it has been tried thru the centuries. God's Word never comes back void
