The Democrat Controlled House of Representatives, in their never ending quest to uphold the rights of all Citizens (including illegal immigrants – sic. undocumented aliens), has struck down an amendment to the legislation that would exclude pedophiles as a protected “class”. Introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-IA), the amendment was defeated by a vote of 13 to 10. The following representatives of the people voted in favor of giving a protected status to those that would rape and murder children: Jonn Conyers (D-MI), Scott (D-GA), Zoe Lofgren(D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-DC), Robert Wexler(D-FL), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Johnson (D), Pierluisi (D-PR), Gutierrez(D-IL, Sherman (D), Baldwin (D-WI), Weiner(D-NY) and Meffei (D-NY).

The vote was strictly along party lines, with Democrats defeating Republican dissenters who felt that Pedophiles should be excluded from the Hate Crimes Legislation. A copy of the discussion can be found here.
Other amendments proposed and adjudication follow :

3. An amendment by Mr. Rooney to include in the bill crimes where the victim's status was that of a member of the armed forces. Defeated 11 to 9.
6. An amendment by Mr. Gohmert to add a Rule of Construction that no prosecution may be based in whole or in part on religious beliefs quoted from the Bible, the Tanakh, or the Koran. Defeated 11 to 8.
8. Motion to table an appeal of the Chair's ruling that the Jordan amendment to broaden the protected classes in the bill to include an unborn child was non-germane. Agreed to 14 to 10.
9. An amendment by Mr. Goodlatte to broaden protected classes in the bill to cover crimes where the victim's status was that of a pregnant woman. Defeated 13 to 9.
12. An amendment by Mr. King to create a new category of criminal offense for crimes committed by illegal immigrants against nationals of the United States because of the U.S. national's status as a U.S. national or U.S. citizen. Defeated 14 to 11.
14. An amendment by Mr. King to add an additional element of proof to the substantive offense, requiring proof of intent to intimidate or terrorize the class of persons to which the victim belongs. Defeated 10 to 8.
15. An amendment by Mr. King to define the term `sexual orientation' as used in the bill to explicitly exclude pedophilia. Defeated 13 to 10.


The bill, which is in essence unnecessary due to the fact that we have equal protection laws, as well as existing hate crime legislation, gives rise to the question: What on earth are these bozo’s doing with our money and don’t they have anything better to do than to a) try to eliminate biblical references as possible hate speech, and b) protect pedophiles from hate crimes? It goes without saying that this enormous waste of time with the unfortunate consequence of knowing that certain members of Congress would prefer to protect, as a “class”, those formerly known as “criminals” – mind-boggling to say the very least.
As a parent, one cannot comprehend how a decent human being, legislator or no, could condone the act of a pedophile, let alone protect that person as a “class”. As a registered voter, in one of the districts in which these cretins reside, one would be better served by an alternative. 2010 will arrive, and with it, a hope that our children’s future will be protected, additionally, that our children will be protected from individuals and a party that have limited compassion, are lacking in decency, and operating without any moral compass (pick a religion – or non-religion) whatsoever.

Incredible! American Leftists are transforming America to legalize homosexuality, transexuals and now pedophiles. What's next? May poor misunderstood serial killers.

I caught the tail end of this on the news and I thought there is no way I heard it right. You know where this is headed? Soon we will have a push to legalize it and then they will demand to marry.

What I don't understand is why Republican leaders are not jumping all over this on as many airways as possible. This is the grossest sort of pandering I have ever seen.
