U.S. Senate To Vote on 'Hate Crimes' Bill   

Please Ask Your Senators to Vote NO

The United States Senate is poised to vote Thursday, July 16, 2009 on Senator Ted Kennedy's infamous Hate Crimes Bill (S. 909), aka, the Pedophile Protection Act.

The legislation elevates "actual or perceived" "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the same federal legal status as race.

Homosexual activists are urging passage of this bill which will give preferential treatment to prosecute crimes committed against some victims while ignoring other victims of the same crimes.  Additionally, there are concerns that this legislation may be misused by those who want to prosecute speech that is ironically deemed intolerant by homosexual activists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hate Crimes legislation would authorize the Department of Justice to investigate and prosecute certain bias-motivated crimes based on the victim's actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability. Even more troubling is that S.909 could create special protections for pedophiles. Democrats voted down an amendment to the bill that would have excluded pedophilia and other "sexual orientations" from the definition of "sexual orientation."

The U.S. House passed their Hate Crimes Bill (HR 1913) on April 29, 2009.  The vote was 249 to 175, with 10 not voting.  Click here to see how your representative voted.
