Senate passes gay hate-crimes bill
A bill to make violence against gays and lesbians a federal crime cleared the Senate Thursday and is headed to the White House for final approval.
The 68-29 vote was a victory for civil rights groups that have been fighting for years to expand the federal hate-crimes law beyond attacks motivated by bias based on religion, race, national origin or color
I am totally against violence
against gay people but I do
not think criminals should be
punished for why they did something
but should be punished for what they
did. A murdered gay man is just as
dead whether killed by an anti gay bigot
or by another gay man.
