Protect Pedophiles, Imprison Bible-Thumpers

Hidden in U.S. Senate bill 1390, the National Defense Authorization Act, is an amendment that on it's own wouldn't see the light of day.

Senator Ted Kennedy's bill 909 (The Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act) would have provided protection for 547 types of sexual deviants (as defined by the American Psychiatric Association), including pedophiles and incestuous family members, from "hate crimes". However, since it couldn't get enough votes on its own, it has been attached to the larger defense spending bill.

This legislation opens the door for anyone quoting the Bible to be brought up on charges for inciting violence. If it was proved the crime was committed after hearing the hate speech against gays found in the Bible, a priest, church, or missionary could be considered co-conspirators to the crime.

Think I'm nuts? Remember where the hate crimes concept originated - racism. As the Supreme Court ruled in 1993, anyone who is heard uttering racial remarks while or before committing a crime can get enhanced penalties based on hate speech.

What if a church going individual is heard quoting Bible verses before or while committing a crime against any one of the 547 protected individuals in Matthew's Bill??

The most egregious part of this issue - it's tie to troop funding. A vote against the bill could be used to attack any Senator for not supporting the troops.

Fortunately perhaps, elected officials in Washington won't be protected by this bill. But only because the APA hasn't classified them as a unique kind of sexual predator, yet. So, I wonder if the biker community is ready to do a ride on Washington? They don't care for pedophiles much.
