House Passes Inclusive VAWA

The House has approved the LGBT-inclusive Violence Against Women Act over the vehement objections of anti-gay hate groups. The Violence Against Women Act was first passed in 1994, but it expired
in 2011 and was not renewed last year. The act provides federal
assistance to health care providers and law enforcement agencies that
prosecute domestic violence.  When the bill passed in the Senate two weeks ago, Tony Perkins denounced it as a “feminist slush fund that extends special rights to people based on their sexual behavior.” Suck it, Tony.
