''House Passes Fully Inclusive Matthew Shepard Act, Moves On To Senate''
This is a great 'VICTORY' against GLBT hate crimes. But now the battle moves onto the Senate. I'd ask you to once again to take action, call, email and write your Senator. Urge them to take up the Matthew Shepard Act (S. 909). We need every Senator to know we want quick action on the inclusive hate crimes bill. I hope you understand that this fight is far from over. Tell Senate it's their time to act, send an online message urging then. We can't wait another day, for GLBT hate crime legislation to be passed. The lives of our GLBT brothers and sisters depends on you taking action now.'

"Battle For Matthew Shepard Act Moves to Senate & Right Gets Down Right Dirty''
Now that the House passed HR-1913 the Religious Right is doing whatever possible to convince the Senate not to pass it. They have stooped to a new low, even for them, they have no shame. They've geared up spewing their Lies, Deceit, Misinformation and Scare Tactics. In absolute desperation, simply flooding Senators with emails isn't enough. Below is a sample of how low they're willing to go, it's just beginning.

Capitol Hill "reporter," Andrea Lafferty, daughter of Homophobe Lou Sheldon of the Traditional Values Coalition, tells Janet that if the hate crimes bill is passed it will mean amputee stump fetishists would be able to sexually assault her brother and she tried to stop them she'd be charged with a hate crime!

''School Bullying Leads to Beating and Rape of 13 Y.O. Student''
This news story doesn't get more disturbing or heinous. Four teens attacked a 13 year old fellow student, but, in this case they didn't stop with just beating him up. They went even further by sodomizing this poor kid with A broom and hockey stick in school locker room. This has nothing to do with the student being perceived as or being gay. It exposes the shere brutality of bullying that can take place in our schools.
I find myself searching to understand how such despicable behavior is learned and ask two questions.
1. What causes young teens to act out in such a brutal and horrific manner upon another student.
2. Most importantly, what are teachers and administrators, who are charged with protecting students, doing to to prevent this from taking place or educating students on the traumatizing effects bullying has.
Raymond Price-Murray, 14
The four Walker Middle School students arrested and charged in the April 30th brutal attack and rape a 13-year-old classmate with a broom handle and a hockey stick in a campus locker room. The teen victim was continually harassed by his four classmates for nearly two months before the assault.
