    Evangelical activists want LGBT people excluded from anti-lynching bill

    Evangelical activists are pressing Republican lawmakers to strip protections for LGBT+ people from an anti-lynching bill.

    The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act cleared the US Senate on December 20 in a rare unanimous vote.
    The bill would allow lynchings—bias-motivated mob killings without legal authority—to be charged as a federal hate crime for the first time.

    However, evangelical law firm Liberty Counsel is upset because a portion of the bill includes protections for LGBT people as well as ethnic minorities.

    Just when you think they cant sink any further. How do these freaks get to call themselves Christian ?

    Shouldn't it be against the law to lynch anyone, not just protected groups/classes?

    Let's be real: the whole Justice for Victims of Lynching Act is nothing more than feel good nonsense. It's redundant and silly.

    Is it to do with making it a federal hate crime ? I am not an expert in your colonial laws. Anyway these fake christians seem to want to single out Gays as ok to lynch. Black folks must be chuffed apart from Gay black folks I guess.

    Federal hate crimes are simply a way to get around double jeopardy.

    Well we should be able to agree that lynching is a BAD THING. In which case why do these Godless wretches want to single out Gay folk ?

    I am anti-lynching even if you are the victim, deanrd! Murder is already illegal by the way.
