    If we don’t let Pelosi know that we are watching her every move, then she will be tempted to devise a cunning way to move the legislation ahead. This is a stronger hate crime bill than H.R. 256, and is also waiting to be brought up for a vote. It permits the federal government expand its jurisdiction even more. The government can “allocate such sums as are necessary to increase the number of personnel to prevent and respond to alleged violations.” Twenty million dollars will be allocated towards the prevention of hate crimes through “anti-bias” education programs. In other words they will use this money to promote homosexuality in our schools and in the media.

    Our opponents are patient and determined. Pelosi is counting on our being too tired to fight. But she is wrong! After all, we have much more to lose.

    These two bills directly threaten your freedom of speech and religion. The Prevention Act will also create $10 million dollars in Federal funding to be given to non-profit groups to run the prevention program. This means you will not be able to teach your children Christian values that are opposing the special minority groups like homosexuals, but the schools and other Anti-Christian groups will be able to promote homosexual activity to them and will be well funded to do so. You won’t be able to say a word if you don’t want to be imprisoned. President Barack Obama has supported hate crimes in the past and is expected to sign the bill if it gets to his desk. We need to act now!

    Murder is murder, rape is rape, robbery is robbery! To change the punishment based on race, skin color, sexual orientation, sex or another other such factor is the DEFINITION of RACISM. So if your Gay your life is worth more if your not? If your black your life is worth more than a Native American Indian?

    If you commit Murder, you get tried and go to jail or get the death penalty based on the crime you commit, not what social group you belong to!

    We already have laws to cover the violent crime, we don’t need a new set of laws, enforce what we have!
