This is hate-speech directed at southerners, veterans, etc. Not really anyone that you LIKE, is there?

I'm also willing to bet, from your comments, that you've never had to live with anyone who has survived the atrocity of pedophilia. I've known 3, and ALL 3 were suicidal. There are worse things than death.

You want to make the moral norms of other countries the norm here? Cool! let's start chopping the hands off of thieves. Tomorrow.

I'm glad I don't live in YOUR neighborhood.

sexual orientation n. The direction of one's sexual interest toward members of the same, opposite, or both sexes, especially a direction seen to be dictated by physiologic rather than sociologic forces. Replaces sexual preference in most contemporary uses.


medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com...


Sexual Orientation: The organisation of an individual’s eroticism and/or emotional attachment with reference to the sex and gender of their sexual partner. Sexual orientation may be manifested in any one or a combination of sexual behavior, thoughts, fantasies and desires.


www.share.uwa.edu.au...


Pedophilia A sexual dysfunction where the person achieves sexual arousal or satisfaction only through the sexual exposure of children i.e. either watching them naked or undressing them or indulging in child pornography. A pedophilic may not necessarily have sex with the child to attain satisfaction, but enjoys the vulnerability


www.ifsha.org...


Sexual Orientation- A person's predisposition or inclination toward a particular type of sexual activity or behavior; heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality.

admin.utep.edu...

The definition of Sexual Orientation is not solely straight bi or gay . It refers to desire behavior and fantasy as well as the traditional meanings .

Most bills will define terms in the definitions part of the bill .If the bill writers wanted to define the meaning of Sexual Orientation to include or exclude certain Sexual Orientations this should have been spelled out there it wasn't so the interpretations is subject to almost any recognized definitions . Which would lead to the broadest sense of the definition.

Inclination toward a particular type of sexual activity or behavior . This part of the definitions allows for a lot of interpretations and sexual behaviors. Besides pedophilia the definition could be extended to other sexual desires also to be protected under the law .

I personally dislike any one or group being a sacred cow . If a crime is committed the penalty should be the same regardless of who perpetrated the crime and what type of person is the victim

Factual info is not hate speech.
I got my info directly from cops and chiefs of police.
Singling out the south-okay-my bad-it's most likely prevalent in rural
areas everywhere. It's not like anyone can take a poll.

Please reread my rant- you must have got your blood pressure up and
lost any clarity.

I am ranting about lowering the age of consent for the post-pubescent.
I am against child rape and want society to protect children from predators.
However, I am consistent in protecting children and want innocent children
protected from some stupid, zombie soldiers. Emphasis on the word "some".
Soldiers who don't kill children are to be commended
-they are the real heroes and I appreciate them and support them.
Thank you for your service-I salute you.
But pilots who drop bombs on children, or blind gruntheads
who shoot innocent children in a spray of fire are to be spit on as they
are lower than the scum of the earth. And I support soldiers who blow these
child murderers away in the heat of combat. That's the only time friendly
fire lives up to it's name. And there are real men out there who were
soldiers who did not hesitate to do this. They are the Real Veteran Protectors.

In the past twenty years, the GOP has done an amazing job of using language to win votes. It started when they hired NLP experts to work on Bush's campaign against Dukakis, IIRC, and it really accelerated when Newt Gingrich sent out a list words to use when describing Republican "things" and a list of words to use when describing Democrat "things." Obviously, the latter list of words was meant to trigger a negative reaction in the listener.

The Democrats (read: Obama) are just now catching up. "Change" was actually one of the words that Gingrich suggested using to describe Republicans.

Once you conclude that we have a one-party system, it's actually entertaining to watch these two parties compete against eachother. It's sort of like watching a sporting event.

You probably know more than that -- they just haven't told you. In my experience, it's sickeningly common (people open up to me). It kills me to think about how many people I've known who were victims of child molestation. At various points in time, I've lived with three victims. Two of them were suicidal, that I know of. I woke up to to find one crawling across the floor after slitting his wrists (he survived, thank God). The other had a full-blown psychotic break, and becomes down-right dangerous if he isn't on his medication. Obviously, substance abuse also becomes an issue in most of the cases that I've known.

I detest anybody who would do those things to a child. They're monsters.

Ah, yeah I see your point. I went to jump school there. Part of it is probably that the GI's can get rowdy sometimes and the locals just assume the worst when they see someone in uniform.
Still, they ought not bite the hands that feed them, since there's not a whole lot of industry there and without Benning there'd be nothing to support the local economy.

It has been defined by Federal Statute. That is about as legitimate a definition the government can offer.

mediamatters.org...
during an April 23 House Judiciary Committee hearing, the term "sexual orientation" is already defined by federal statute as applying only to "consensual homosexuality or heterosexuality," thereby excluding pedophiles, who engage in nonconsensual sexual relationships with children.


This was the latest of many reaching and desperate ploys by the GOP to appeal to the extremists within their party.

The GOP has responded to thier failure in the last election by "doubling down" on the strategy that failed them. This is why men like Arlan Spector are abandoning ship.

In "principle" the GOP has a great deal to offer...in practice they rightly appear petty and dishonest, placing strategic goals of the party above all other interests...like the American people. We need a two party system.

With the republicans continuing with negative, dishonest tactics that the American public has already rebuked..well from a balance of power perspective it is like Arnold Swartzeneger and Danny Devito on a see-saw. Nobody is having much fun.

The current direction of the GOP genuinely saddens me.

This is from Il. law this is what we should see in the said bill


(d) "Sexual orientation" means heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality. (Source: P.A. 89-689, eff. 12-31-96; 90-578, eff. 6-1-98.)


www.state.il.us...

I read your article the references to the definition is already there . I have looked enough tired of looking I cant prove or disprove there is a definition like that . For a federal bill a definition like above needs to be spelled out not assume the fed follows states definitions.

Black’s Law Dictionary for a definition of “sexual orientation” as “a person’s predisposition or inclination toward a particular type of sexual activity or behavior; heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality.



The Hate Crime law, S.909 (and HR1913), will make 30 sexual orientations federally-protected. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has published 30 such sexual orientations that, because of Congress's refusal to define "sexual orientation," will be protected under this legislation. These 30 orientations are listed in the APA's "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders," Fourth Edition, Text Revision (Washington: American Psychiatric Association, 2000), pp. 566-582 (DSM-IV), which is used by physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and psychiatrists throughout the U.S. It is considered the dictionary of mental disorders.


www.afa.net...

For a law to be effective the meanings need to be defined. If they are not defined explicitly so, It leaves lawyers and judges discretion to make that call then on the a appeals the to supreme court the whole thing could be easily adverted with a simple definition in the definitions part of the bill .

When you have medical field psychologists and dictionaries stating one definition and a bill being introduced with out a clarification that is different than the medical profession there will be trouble .

I am saddened by both Dem and REP. This is giving the GOP a reason to fight and grand stand and to clear it up the Dems could add one simple sentence would have killed all the games they are playing with each other . The Dem will say GOP are obstructing the bill .The wordings in a definition can mean the difference between a conviction or walking . or even like other bills definitions are as per sec 123,123 of the fed statues problem solved .

I read Huffington Post Fox MSN CNN listen to Rush or Shaw and read NYT wast. post BBC aljazzers plus quite a few more if i find articles worth reading . Every one puts a spin on it . I find the truth is somewhere in the middle very rarely I think one side is totally correct .

In the past 40 years both the GOP and Democratic party have both used and misused language to steer public sentiment and put people on the emotional puppet string for votes.

In like manner ..so have the shills for both political partiess....the media used and misused language to properly stroke thier voters such that they can control them on election day.

This is not a one sided event with the Democrats as the 'VICTIMS' here.

The "Victims" are a very ignorant American public who are pretty much unawares that this puppet string has been attached to them...unknowingly and unwillingly.

The public is being hijacked...

I tend to call this technique by the body politic....Public Masterbation.
The political parties jerking the public off for votes.

Pardon the crudity but the political system has earned this moniker. Both political parites.

The "Victim Dictum" was made popular by Phil Donahue and his talk show on the "Boob Tube." This pattern of exploitation was quickly picked up by a host of copy cats. IT did not go unnoticed by the body politic as a tool to win voters.
Since those times a whole generation of peoples ...now voters...have been raised on the acceptable philosophy/theology of... being an emotional trainwreck entitles one to play through unchallanged and undebated....because you are a "VICTIM."

The news media...the entertainment industry and the music industry are now in bed with the body politic. All of them are willing to use and enhance the "Victim Dictum" for the purposes of selling the souls of the American Public for votes. All of these medias are now one and the same as the body politic.

THe body politics will use any technique behind closed doors ...to win votes or elections....any technique. "They will use or misuse the media, public education , hollywood and the music industry to support/cover up thier techniques.

Use or misuse of language is only one method..used by the body politic. It is indeed a method used often..and the public needs to be aware of it.

I was quite aware of the technique of Mentalus Reservatus..or Mental Reservation used or misused when the now famous statement was uttered on national television..

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

I knew exactly what technique of mind manipulation was being used.
This technique Mentalus Reservatus is often used by politicians and even Priests. Beware!!

This technique has been used or misused many times in the public spotlight since.

Thanks,
Orangetom

The world is in the grip of a bunch of depraved pedophiles, they are now making laws to protect their depravity and guaging our responses to see if we will accept it.

Pedophilia and sexual immorality is WRONG.

White straight you are not one of the chosen ones sorry . Try again next time .



Since white is a race and straight is a sexual orientation, where do you people get off thinking that you are not protected under this law?

The problem is that when you get beat up, it's usually because you got into a fight and not because of your race or orientation. Now, if a black guy is screaming "cracker" at you while beating you up, then you have a case for hate crime.

It's really that simple people.

BTW, I'm against this hate crime stuff myself. All it will do is make the criminals not call you names while they kick the sh*t out of you.
