HATE BILL GOING FORWARD IN SENATE!
By Rev. Ted Pike
13 July 09
The term “crime of violence” means— (a) an offense that has as an element the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against the person or property of another, or (b) any other offense that is a felony and that, by its nature, involves a substantial risk that physical force against the person or property of another may be used in the course of committing the offense.

I don't think anyone in here is making the Christians being censored arguement.
We're actually discussing the bill itself. You people keep popping in with the whole "read the bill" argument. Most of us have.

Yes, maybe when you read the bill the DEFINITIONS are what actually make the reasoning of the bill, or any LEGAL text.
Go read the definitions, and apply them to what you read as 'good'. If you still see it as good, then well that's an area I guess is for you......... When this government makes vaccines 'good', and 'mandatory', you can run around again telling people it's "all good"..................Read the DEFINITIONS.
This is no "christian" issue; as I am not that. It is an issue of the very sacred Right to Freedom of Speech.
