FRC's Tony Perkins Denounces Senate Vote on 'Hate Crimes' Legislation

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement reacting to today's passage of "Hate Crimes" legislation as attached to the Defense Authorization Bill.

"In a slap to the face of our servicemen and women, they attached 'hate crimes' legislation to the final defense bill, forcing Congress to choose between expanding hate crimes or making our military go without. This hate crimes provision is part of a radical social agenda that could ultimately silence Christians and use the force of government to marginalize anyone whose faith is at odds with homosexuality. Expanding hate crimes puts America in lock step with the stated agenda of homosexual activists who will turn next to the so-called Employment Non-discrimination Act, followed by the repeal of the ban on homosexuality in the military and then the Defense of Marriage Act. We call on President Obama to veto this legislation which violates the principle of equal justice under the law and also infringes on the free speech rights of the American people."

Lazy, lazy, lazy

I have no excuses. I have simply been lazy and haven't been a-bloggin' in recent days.

Wow. The sun just came out. It must be because I'm finally blogging. Ya think?

The holidays are a time for family, and after the election I needed to spend some quality time with them.

I plan to get back to it now that I've had a breather and had time to digest the loss. I am not looking forward to the following few years. I keep reading and hearing about things that Obama is contemplating and it doesn't seem quite as bad as I'd thought. But then I hear Reid or Pelosi mouthing off and I realize they are drunk with power and it is going to be bad, bad, bad.

The sun is still shining and it's the first time I've seen it in days and days. I don't know how long it will last as I heard it's going to rain the rest of the week. I may have to find something to do outdoors for a bit.

Nice being back in the blogosphere.
