Federal Hate Crimes Legislation

On Thursday, the Democratic-controlled congress votes on whether to include “sexual orientation” under the umbrella of the existing Federal hate crimes law.

Joe My God writes:
On March 21, the American Family Organization issued an action alert to stop the legislation, saying that the hate crimes bill will be "the first step toward silencing any opposition to the homosexual lifestyle."

(Which is true, as long as that opposition comes in the form of, say, a tire iron to the head.)

This link takes you to the Human Rights Campaign’s e-letter form. If you fill out the required fields, the form letter (urging passage of the bill) will be automatically sent to your local Congressperson.

If it passes both houses, Bush will probably sign it (i.e., he has yet to indicate he would veto).
