Testing Shepard/Byrd Hate Crimes Law
(Oklahoma City) Two Oklahoma City fundies, wanting to get a larger share of the bigger bigot spotlight got just that this past Monday, November 16, in Washington, DC. The only thing is that the bigger share wasn't very bright, nor did it succeed in getting them arrested, charged, or cuffed, as was their fond hope. Their martyrdom for the Eternal Light will have to wait another day.
Dr. Steve Kern, husband of terrorist-sniffer GOP Rep. Sally Kern, along with Paul Blair, devoted homo-hater, were hoping to get arrested. Their public attempt at civil disobedience looked more like a childish temper tantrum resulting from their pique with Congress passing the Shepard/Byrd Hate Crime Law. http://www.olivetbaptistokc.com/ , http://tinyurl.com/yr63qo
Paul Blair of Edmond, Oklahoma, is quoted in all his goodness talking about marriage, but the Shepard/Byrd Hate Crimes Law is not about marriage, it's about inciting violence and targeting individuals as scapegoats for the superstition and fears of mentally unhealthy people who organize public rallies to drum up money and support from similarly hood-winked adults. http://fairviewbaptistedmond.org/
This story from the Washington Post quotes these charlatans in all their illiteracy about the Shepard/Byrd Law. http://tinyurl.com/ydelkkj
But the self-styled "Pastor" Blair was ejected in October from a parochial high school football game for objectionable language used towards a student player from the opposing team. Just what could a Man of Gee-sus have said to a high-school boy to get the speaker ejected by the referee? http://gossip-boy.com/Blair_Ejected.html
After reading their remarks, it would seem that biblical devotion to the litera and inerrant precludes the ability to read, interpret, and understand this section of the law, Sec. 10: paragraphs 3 and 4, which protects freedom of speech as long as that speech is within legally accepted parameters, such as not inciting illegal acts of violence. http://tinyurl.com/y97awf6
But then, we know that bible fundies aren't really interested in truth, but just in maintaining their flat-earth dream world made in their own image.
