Homos want to put you in jail for calling them homos

CQ Weekly

Eleven years ago the Senate rejected, by just one vote, legislation that would have outlawed bias against homosexuals in most American workplaces; other bids to revive the bill during the GOP’s reign on Capitol Hill came up empty. Legislation that would make crimes motivated by hatred of gays a federal offense have come closer to becoming law. The House included such language in a measure targeting sex offenders in 2005, but the language was abandoned later in the process. The Senate has added hate-crime amendments to bills in 1999, 2000 and 2004, but each time the provisions have been dropped in conference negotiations with the House.

Now House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers Jr., a
Michigan Democrat, is preparing to introduce a bill federalizing gay
hate crimes and providing resources to law enforcement agencies and
prosecutors to target such cases. Its backers say a floor vote is
expected this spring.
