An Ugly Truth

I suppose that ugliness, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

I think it is tremendously ugly that some US Senators are receiving 5 calls from the Religious Right against the Matthew Shepherd Hate Crimes Bill for every 1 they receive in favor of its passage.

Persons who are victimized by hate crimes because they hold a particular religious perspective --regardless of what that perspective is-- are already protected by hate crimes legislation. It's a shame that some religious people do not want to extend to others a basic right they enjoy.

Watch this.

Please take action here.
