Ex-gay Country Singer slams Hate Crimes Bill???
Well it seems the Hate Crimes Bill has another confused critic, a ex-gay country singer named Dennis Jernigan. Here jernigan states the same argrument that is a LIE:
"I was able to come to a level of freedom the homosexual community never told me was possible. Yet, through faith in God, I successfully walked out of that way of thinking and have met thousands of other men and women who have done the same. What about our civil liberties? To pass such a bill as H.R. 1592 is to invoke fear that I could be prosecuted for my religious beliefs and speech."
LOL! I don't know what freedom you claim to have, but that's you. The bill says specificly and clearly says: " Nothing in this act, or the amendments made by this Act, shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct protected from legal prohibition by, or any actitivies protected by the free speech or free exercise clauses the First Amendment to the Constitution" the hate crime bill says. Are some of these people lacking comprehension skills? No, couldn't be, right? Well the hidden message their message their trying to send is it's ok to hate on this group of Americans! The argrument is weak, and people should be ashamed for using that one.
Mr.Jernigan even goes far to say his "reclosted gay friends" would be discriminated against.
He says:If this bill passes, Congress is telling me that I and countless others who have discovered they don't have to be homosexual are of less value now than when we were living as homosexuals. If we look down the road of this slippery slope, this legislation would actually pave the way to make it a criminal offense to think differently than someone else or to have religious convictions that are opposed to this politically correct ideology. Do we really want such thoughts to be illegal?
Thoughts? WTF? I already stated how the thought argrument is weak is not TRUE! Well, Mr.Jernigan, you, and your "relosted gay friends" like Alan Chambers should not worry, because your rights are still there! Now I'm going to say Alan Chambers, Mr.Jernigan, and other reclosted gay friends, well you're still gay! GET OVER IT!
