Just when you think the bizarre lies of the Christianist right cannot possibly get any more outrageous, they go and outdo themselves……..
Lou Sheldon’s Traditional Values Coalition is claiming that the hate crimes act currently before Congress will legalize numerous types of sexual crimes because the American Psychiatric Association lists certain sexual fetishes under a long list of “sexual orientations”
Got that? Because the hate crimes act will increase punishments for crimes based on sexual orientation, nobody can be prosecuted for sexual crimes. Did you head explode yet? Follow the bouncing logic:
The main purpose of this “hate crime” legislation is to add the categories of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” “either actual or perceived,” as new classes of individuals receiving special protection by federal law. Sexual orientation includes heterosexuality, homosexuality, and bisexuality on an ever-expanding continuum. Will Congress also protect these sexual orientations-zoophiles, pedophiles or polygamists? Gender identity includes such gender confused behaviors as cross-dressing, she-male, drag queen, transvestite, transsexual or transgender. Under the Act, neither “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” are really defined. How can a law be enforced if the new classes receiving special protection remain undefined?
The sexual behaviors considered sinful and immoral by most major religions will be elevated to a protected “minority” class under federal law. Once “sexual orientation” is added to federal law, anyone with a bizarre sexual orientation will have total protection for his or her activities by claiming that Congress sanctions their appearance, behavior or attitudes. Inevitably this will negatively affect the performance of co-workers who are forced to work alongside of individuals with bizarre sex habits. Imagine working next to a person who gets sexual pleasure from rubbing up against a woman (Fronteurism) or enjoys wearing opposite sex clothing. These are “sexual orientations.”
Here’s a partial list of the crimes the Tradition Values Coalition says will become legal under the Matthew Shepard Act, which is now known as the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009:
- Fronteurism — which involves a man approaching an unknown woman and rubbing up against her buttocks. This is criminal behavior.
- Incest — which is a crime (sex with a daughter or son).
- Necrophilia — a crime (sex with a corpse).
- Pedophilia — a crime (sex with an underage child).
- Prostitution — a crime in most states.
- Zoophilia — (beastiality) which is a crime in numerous states.
- Voyeurism — which is a criminal offense in most states.
Tomorrow the House Judiciary Committee is expected to approve the hate crimes act for a vote by the full House. If it finally becomes federal law, Lou Sheldon must expect that the nation will erupt into a coast-to-coast orgy of corpse fucking.
