The Hate-Crimes Bill will be voted on Wed

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote by Wednesday on hate crimes legislation that threatens your freedom and gives special rights to a few based only on their sexual conduct.

Instead of committee hearings and open debate, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is reportedly rushing this measure forward by having it attached to unrelated legislation.

Sen. Reid and others want to shield this dangerous bill from debate and scrutiny. They dont want the public to know that this bill mandates greater criminal penalties for crimes against people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, or who engage in a broad range of other sexual aberrations. It creates a two-tiered system of justice in which some, including pedophiles, are more equal than others.

But thats where we come in.

Please call or email your senators right away to urge them to vote "No" on S.909, the "Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act." The Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121 or (202) 225-3121.

Dont let homosexual pressure groups railroad this bill through the Senate!

Together, lets stop the "hate crimes express."

Act Now!

Senate passage is not inevitable. We are already making a differencethe bill has been held up for weeks in the Senateand we can prevail if we send a loud and clear signal!

Please call or email your senators now!

In Canada, they are arresting pastors just for speaking out against homosexuality. Next it's targeting Christian radio programs. Send your senator an email or call.
