    Once again you all can see for yourselfs why I commend President Obama for signing this Bill into law this fine Wednesday morning. No it won’t prevent our good wacapath preacherman from harming someone, but it sure will provide for the federal assistance in investigating and locking these self rightous religous nut jobs away for a good long time. Oh and by the way preacher nut… preach away I’m still an athiest… have a nice day!

    Aren’t all crimes/murders a HATE CRIME? You hate the person enough to kill them or rob them. I don’t care if someone wants to be gay or straight or whatever. Why introduce more bills that aren’t going to work. Americans have the right to feel and think they want to. What happened to being free to hate someone or be racist? It might not be the smartest thing, but you are a free American you have the right to be racist.

    You are right that we already have laws on the books to convict people of violent crimes. The part you don’t see is how often crimes against the gay community are dismissed and poorly investigated given the victims status. This bill provides for federal intervention that in effect forces the hand of those who don’t feel like prosecuting.

    To the far right… this has been law now for almost a year now and I’m still waiting for your preachers to be locked up for preaching their good news!!!!
