    Late last, year most of you probably already know that the Matthew Shepard Act had been passed.

    For those that do not know this "measure expands the 1969 United States federal hate-crime law to include crimes motivated by a victim's actual or perceived gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability". It also arisen in light due to the murder of Matthew Shepard in 1998, a murder most speculate was driven because of said victims Sexual Orientation. And this is despite overwhelming evidence which actually proves it wasnt, but thats not point.

    Here is what the act is all about:

    - removes the prerequisite that the victim be engaging in a federally-protected activity, like voting or going to school;
    - gives federal authorities greater ability to engage in hate crimes investigations that local authorities choose not to pursue;
    - provides $5 million per year in funding for fiscal years 2010 through 2012 to help state and local agencies pay for investigating and prosecuting hate crimes;
    - requires the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to track statistics on hate crimes against transgender people (statistics for the other groups are already tracked).

    When we speak of the topic of Terrorism today, words like 'Radical Islam' and names like 'Osama Bin Laden' are casually thrown in. The fact is the biggest groups of terrorists that have caused problems in the US are actually 'equal rights' group coming from the left. The gay rights movement is no different from the Civil Rights movement and Feminist which have appeared in the mid 20th century...once radical movements to create equality for their respective collective, its as obvious as ever that the true objective was to oust the previous dominating group (heterosexuals) and give more special rights to the less perceived group (in this case homosexuals)...

    When will these idiots realize that creating hate crime acts which create specifically exclusive and protected categories doesn't equalize anything but create more conflict. It is an 100% illegitamate act. If I wanted to, I can fake being gay and reap the benefits of this act.

    In Conclusion, the Matthew Shepard act is another piece of turd pushed forth by the far left. An emotional response, but not a realistic one...

    If Gays are just like the rest of the population, why would they need a hate crime act to single them out from the rest of the other people? I thought we moved in the same train?

    The fudge packers are part of a protected class in America.

    They have special laws that only apply to them and their perverted lifestyle.

    The gay agenda is to put themselves in an untouchable legal status.

    Then they can work towards their ultimate goal of making pedophilia legal. :evil:

    Do you really know we are already in 2010, not 1510??? It doesn't seem so. For your information, gays are fighting to be considered just like the rest of the population. In the long meantime, they are being discriminated at work, school, etc. etc. ETC. and because of that, those laws are important, to fight against people who do not understand that and act accordingly.

    You know what, why don't you fake being a gay by wearing this Matthew Shepherd pendant and while you can "benefit" from this legislation, you can make a real favor to the foundation.

    eh, homosexuality is a sexual deviance. That is all. They don't need special rules, if they want to be treated equally like everybody else, they should ditch this, and continue do what they do under the curtain...

    not that I'm advocating gayness, but I'm trying to be fair here.

    Wait a second

    What about the muslims?

    Should we not round them up first and keep them in confinement??

    You know, they love to blow themselves up. With a great big

    "KA BLOOEEY"


    I say the muslims are more dangerous than the gays. In fact, the muslims have centuraries of working together, the gay movement is pretty recent!!

    Actually, both the Christians and the Muslims are very dangerous. Gays have a lot to fear from both groups. If people believe they are doing something for "Gawd", they will do anything. They have no limits to their violence.

    Any "hate crime" laws that provide unequal protection for any group are un- Constitutional for obvious reasons. In the case of Matthew Shepard, according too ABC's Elizabeth Vargas, the victim was murdered by one of his sexual partners, McKinney. It was a crime committed by a homosexual over drugs while McKinney was violent from meth use and perhaps "gay"rage. This act and any like it should be struck down forever.

    It is a deviance, in the sense they deviate from the norm, not deviant as in being a bad thing.

    If Mathew Sheppard got murdered and tied to a wheel by the offenders specifically because he was gay, then that type of law is needed.

    Maybe if bigoted fucktards left them alone there wouldn't be the necessity for such laws..

    After thinking about it--I say you are right. The Christians need rounding up!! They have worked together even longer than the gays or the muslims and they have the arrogance to dictate to the rest of us non-christians.

    I vote for rounding up the Christians and placing them into confinement.


    Uhmmm--one problem. They are just so many of them. Who will do it??:eek:
