H.R. 1913 and christian intolerance.

I "googled" the title of this post, "H.R. 1913 and christian intolerance", and received 43 000 hits.
Out of the first 10 hits, only 1 of them was not filled with hate.

Some of the reactions range from, "Congress Passes Bill Protecting Bizarre Sexual Orientations" to "Anti-Christian intolerance from homosexual activists in Germany. ... Bad News for Free Speech".

An earlier search on google resulted in a wide range of views, some in favour and some against.

Those in favour include: and

And those opposed include:,, and as well as many others.

And here are the first two " H.R. 1913" videos on YouTube.

In favour.

And against.

So what have we learned so far?

The first point that becomes evident is that the christian groups that oppose the "Hate Crimes Bill", really hate humans that are lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans gender.
Yes I used the word human in that sentence. In contrast to the christian position, we are all human, regardless of our sexual orientation.

Secondly, the christian groups that oppose the "Hate Crimes Bill" are paranoid about their "right" to continue to promote their brand of hatred. Section 8 of H.R. 1913 protects the freedom of speech as granted under the Constitution of the United States of America.
Unfortunately for them, they are incapable of understanding the difference between free speech and the promotion of bigotry.

If you don't believe me when I tell you about how hatefull these groups really are, then just post a comment, if they will allow it, on any of their web sites. Or better still attempt to have a rational conversation with any of their members.

The words rational, calm and intelligent just aren't in their vocabulary.

I've experienced this first hand. While trying to explain the benefits of equal rights for everyone as opposed to just certain groups, all I heard was a lot of yelling about the "gay agenda" and how this would "fuck me too."

For those who are interested in reading the actual text of the bill, I know there won't be any christians clicking on this link, it can be found here:
