Last week I blogged about H.R. 1592, a bill which expands special rights for homo[s-x]uals and makes a federal hate crime “thoughts, feelings, and beliefs” which gays find offensive, going way beyond the standard of Western Civilization, which is to make ACTIONS criminal, based on the biblical admonition. This bill makes THOUGHTS criminal. It makes BELIEFS criminal. If you BELIEVE that the Word of God prohibits homo[s-x]ual behavior in Leviticus 18:22, then you have just broken this law of man, should it go into effect.
People, this bill passed the House yesterday evening. Similar legislation is also moving through the Senate. President Bush has threatened to veto this bill, but then there is still the possibility that he could change his mind, or his veto could be overridden by two- thirds majority in Congress. If you cherish your first amendment freedom to believe as you wish without being penalized for your beliefs, then it is past time to act. Call your senators TODAY. (The Senate version of the bill is 1105, introduced by Ted Kennedy.)
