This is very similar to what they are going to do even with the huge health care reform bill. The "hate crimes" bill passed by being slipped into a Defense Bill making it harder to vote no on and not look so non-partisan rather then letting this social issue be voted on alone as Pence was arguing. Vote count below video and article...











Below is another video speech of Congressman's concerns on this issue back in 04/09 posted on Values Voter News at YouTube video calling on pastors and educating them on the issue of the recent "hate crimes" bill being decided in the Senate.

"Hate Crimes" Provision Passes In Defense Spending Bill

A provision to increase punishment for so-called "hate crimes" based on "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" passed the House yesterday by a 281 to 146 vote. Congressman Randy Forbes (VA) vigorously attempted to get the provision removed from an unrelated defense funding bill. He issued a statement against the hate crimes provision earlier this week.

The hate-crimes provision was attached to a $680 billion Defense Department authorization bill, because the provision could not have passed on its own. The bill must pass the Senate in a vote that could come next week.

Hate crimes laws treat some victims differently than others. Such laws are actually "thought crimes" laws that violate the right to freedom of speech and of conscience and have a chilling effect on people with moral or religious objections to homosexual behavior. Evidence of a person's beliefs will be used against any individuals who are even suspected of criminal activity.

You can contact your Senators about the upcoming vote and let them know that you are displeased that hate crimes is attached to the bill that provides funding for American troops."
