In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

Conservative Group Values Hate Crimes

It's not going to be hard to convince fair-minded Americans that religious, conservative groups are extremist and don't have their interests at heart when they go on record in favor of hate crimes. The President of the Family Policy Network says a U.S. Senator does not defend the group's values -- which, presumably, include condoning violent crime against people with whom you aren't comfortable.

How hard and morally challenging would it be to just agree that no one deserves to be a victim of a hate crime?

Hate Crimes Vote Breaks Promise NOT to Support 'Gay Rights' Legislation


A Virginia-based pro-family organization is launching a major offensive against U.S. Senator George Allen (R-VA) this week for voting to add "sexual orientation" to the Federal Hate Crimes Act on June 15. Allen, while campaigning for the U.S. Senate in 2000, pledged his opposition to pro-homosexual legislation with conservative Christians. Just halfway into his first term in office, Allen is breaking his promise.

Since joining the Senate in 2001, George Allen has frustrated conservative constituents by becoming more and more supportive of pro-homosexual causes, even recently lending his name and signature to pro-homosexual lobbying efforts among the legislators in the Virginia state capitol. Last week's Hate Crimes vote in Washington is the latest in a string of actions by Allen that seems to solidify his status as one of the GOP's most pro-homosexual legislators.

Joe Glover, President of the Family Policy Network (FPN) said, "As a candidate, George Allen made it perfectly clear that adding 'sexual orientation' to the list of federal hate crimes would elevate homosexuality to civil rights status." He added, "He promised not to support any such legislation once he was elected. It's obvious now that he can't be trusted to keep his word, much less to defend our values."
