Ted the Swimmer Reaches a New Low

Just when you thought that Ted Kennedy couldn't sink any lower into Lake Chapaquitic, he sets a new standard. Ted the Swimmer in a push to get his "Hate Crime" amendment past, making it a federal crime to say or think anything nasty about Gays, goes and implies that our military is full of bigots.
Sens. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., and Gordon Smith, R-Ore., have trashed the collective reputations of millions of U.S. military service members in order to advance their "hate crimes" legislation, which would make it a crime to utter a negative opinion about homosexuals or their lifestyle, a pro-family group says.

The U.S. Senate yesterday approved an amendment by Kennedy and Smith to install in federal law a ban on such expressions of religious and personal opinion. The amendment was added to the Department of Defense Authorization bill, which is needed to keep funding worldwide U.S. military operations.

"[The] senators humiliate[d] our brave men and women in uniform by alleging that America's military is a haven for bigots committing 'hate crimes'," said Wendy Wright, the president of Concerned Women for America.

"The Defense Authorization bill has been twisted to shamelessly smear our military. Alleged crimes by military members are already prosecuted, so the point of an amendment accusing military members of committing 'hate crimes' is to create the perception that America's military is rife with violent bigots," Wright said.

This bill isn't about protecting gays in the military, it is about restricting the Freedom of Speech of Americans. And for Ted and RINO Smith to slander our military to push for this Orwellian bill is disgusting and unhonorable.

And what can we expect from this new law if signed:
Said the CWA in an analysis of the plan: "We live in a world where even the Bible is being deemed 'hate' literature. Christians have already been jailed for upholding traditional morality in public places, and if hate crime laws proliferate, the freedom to speak one's mind will be limited to those who celebrate and promote homosexuality."

The website features the testimonies of those who have had first-hand experience with local so-called "hate crimes" laws in the United States. A 75-year-old grandmother describes how she was jailed for testifying about the Bible.

The CWA has cited several Canadian cases, where such legislation already is law. There Dr. Laura Schelssinger already has been rebuked and James Dobson's "Focus on the Family" and the late Jerry Falwell's "Old Time Gospel Hour have been warned after broadcasting their religious opinions about homosexuality.

Yes America, you, me and other bloggers, Pastors and Priests can be arrested for saying/writing anything about homosexuality being wrong or sinful.

Protect your Freedom of Speech, save yourself from the Thought Police, save yourself from the activist Gays being offended and wanting you locked up, and expunge the dishonor that was implied of our brave military, write the White House telling President Bush to Veto the bill with this amendment.

Mr Minority
