‘Hate Crimes’ Bill Likely to Pass House, Thanks to Dems

I said when Obama was elected there was nothing to stand in the way of his policies, of getting everything he wants, as far as his liberal left agenda. I’ll say it again; he will destroy this country before he can be stopped.
Back to the so-called “hate crimes” bill.
The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act adds gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability to the list of protected categories.
There is so much wrong with this, it boggles the mind.
Why are we violating the Constitution by having a “two tiered” justice system, where some people, just by stating their sexual preference, will be awarded a higher form of justice? Doesn’t the Constitution forbid unequal justice and the differential treatment of people under the law?
When did our law enforce personal garner the skill of “mind reading” and “time travel”? Truly, to have a “hate crime”, one must know what that person was thinking at the moment the crime was committed. That would require time travel (to be present when the crime was committed) and mind reading (to know what the person was thinking at the time). I keep up on technical advances pretty good and I think I would have heard about it if either of these technologies had been perfected. I think it’s safe to say that neither one has been.
So how can we have a hate crimes bill? It should immediately fail constitutional muster.
Democrats threw out an amendment that would have barred pedophiles from special protection under this law. Are Democrats interesting protecting innocent people at all?
Then there’s the fact that in other countries, where similar laws have been instituted, they have been used to prosecute pastors for preaching about the sin of homosexuality.
I have come under fire several time for making that connection. I have been told “no, that can’t happen”. Well friends, it has happened in other countries. It can, and I predict, will happen here.
Hang on to your seats, folks. Our freedoms are dying by the day. Soon we will have none left.

Proponents of the [“hate crimes”] bill claim that Christians and others who speak out publicly against homosexuality are not threatened with the same type of prosecution that criminals would face for committing acts of violence against homosexuals and transgendered individuals. But Judiciary Committee member Steve King (R-Iowa) says that is simply not true.

“Don’t believe what they say; read the bill. Think what happens. What’s their agenda? Their agenda is to shut down preaching of faith from the pulpit,” he contends. “Their agenda is to force public approval of the homosexual agenda. And destroying marriage nationally is the follow-up piece of this.”

King explains that one of the amendments he introduced would have barred pedophiles from special protection under the hate crimes statute. He finds it unbelievable that Democrats threw out that amendment.

“I just think that tells you that this breaks down the logical approach to law,” King adds. “If we move away from punishing overt acts to punishing thoughts — which is what this legislation does — heaven help us [because] we’ve crossed a line from which it will be awfully hard to ever get back again.”
