The act would add "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" as protected classes to the existing hate crimes law. It will mandate a separate federal criminal prosecution for state offenses.
The only purpose of this bill is to lay the legal foundation and framework for investigating, prosecuting and persecuting pastors, business owners, and anyone else who objects to homosexuality based on their faith!
In fact, just last year, EVEN Congressman Artur Davis (D-AL) admitted that under the legislation pastors could be ARRESTED for so-called hate crimes!
NOW, it has just been learned that the U.S. Senate is set to give legally protected status to pedophiles and 30 other sexual orientations. Congress has refused to define what is meant by sexual orientation in S. 909, the "Hate Crimes" bill. This means that the 30 different sexual orientations will be federally protected classes.

Because of pressure from homosexual groups, Congress has refused to define what is meant by sexual orientation in S.909. By doing so, this means that the 30 different sexual orientations will be federally-protected classes.
Laws already exist in all 50 states to punish violent crime, making S.909 unnecessary, unfair, indefinable, un-American, and constitutionally suspect. S.909 is not designed to aid in crime fighting. Instead, punishing wrong beliefs about homosexuality is its sole purpose.
S.909 is one more step in the campaign to legitimize homosexuality in our culture by treating it as a protected class along with race, gender, and religion.
