Voting on hate crimes bill TOMMOROW. We can defeat thisSubmitted by ruckmanite on Wed, 07/15/2009 - 11:25
One day before possible hate bill passage, the homosexual lobby has pulled out all stops in generating massive calling to the Senate in favor of the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act, S. 909. NPN’s poll for early afternoon EDT on Tuesday, July 14, shows calls in favor of the hate bill significantly outnumber calls against it in both Democrat and Republican offices.

Just at the moment when Christians/conservatives should be mobilizing for a final push to dissuade Senate Democrats from attaching a hate bill amendment to the arms bill, the religious right and conservatives are allowing the homosexual lobby to trump them. The pro-hate bill phoning campaign is being largely generated by the Human Rights Campaign.
A huge reason for such lack of activism, especially among millions of evangelicals, was the radio announcement last Thursday by Dr. James Dobson, Tom Minnery, and Tony Perkins that there is no chance to defeat the hate bill. Dr. Dobson did the same two summers ago, destroying tremendous momentum opposing the hate bill by announcing the hate bill was unbeatable, saying only Pres. Bush’s veto could deliver us. Neither Focus on the Family nor Family Research Council sounded significant warnings before the hate bill passed the Senate in the fall of 2007.
It is incredible that today the HRC website has center front a large flashing banner urging calls to the Senate while no such encouragement or direction is provided on the Focus or FRC websites.

It is astonishing that more than 24,000 people have viewed NPN’s recent video “Holder Admits: No Equal Justice under Hate Bill!” yet Republican offices today are reporting only “a few calls” against the hate bill! I asked Sen. Hatch’s office (which was receiving more than most) how many calls opposed the hate bill. Answer: “Less than 15!”
