As if Bush didn't suck enough

Now he has decided that, despite the fact that one in six hate crimes is based on sexual orientation or gender identity, we don't need to call violent attacks against GLBT citizens hate crimes.

If, as Bush has claimed before, he truly believes that we should not discriminate or hate based on sexual orientation, he would support this.

What really pisses me off is the fact that he probably doesn't give a fuck - he's just pandering to right wing, so-called "Christians" who are in fact hateful people. And they're the first ones to claim persecution if you say "holiday shopping" instead of "Christmas shopping," but don't try to extend the same rights to gays!

Dumb motherfuckers. You all give Christians a bad name. What happened to love your neighbor as yourself?

at the risk of getting on your bad side *wink*...I am totally against this bill. It is dangerous to make an emotion, a belief, a feeling, a desire or something that cannot be defined or shown into a crime.

on the other hand, if an action that is criminal is committed it should be prosecuted completely. if the action is not criminal it should not. but making an action criminal because of a mind set is dangerous and is the ultimate in depriving people of their basic, innate rights.

Actions themselves have meanings and assigning them a different meaning because of something that must be assumed is quite dangerous to all of us.

crime is crime and should be punished but in my opinion making ideas into crimes is a horrible, horrible step.
