The Latest Push for "Thought Crimes"
The Family Research Council's (FRC) own president Tony Perkins has been leading a crusade against what he terms "thought crimes". Those he is fighting are amendments to federal hate crimes laws to homosexuality and other gender-identification crimes to the already existing law. You see, according to him, and other conservative Christians, they have a right to hate and abuse gays. If a gay man is murdered by a gay-basher because he is gay, then that should not be a hate crime (according to these haters).
But now we have the venerable Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League saying this in regards to Kathy Griffin:
The comedian's remarks were condemned Monday by Catholic League President Bill Donohue, who called them a "vulgar, in-your-face brand of hate speech."
So what was it Kathy said? "Suck it, Jesus"
I have to admit, I'm confused... It is a hate crime to say "suck it, Jesus" but it should not be a hate crime to abuse gays? Isn't this the equivalent of a "special right" given to Christians??
Heh... Can I go on record as saying, "suck it, Bill and Tony!"?
