Obama is going to try and pass the Mathew Shepard act. I think with a little push it may be faster. For all of you who do not know Mathew Shepard was just 21 when he was bound to a fence beaten robbed and left for dead. All because he was gay. He was someones son and brother. He was found in a coma his face covered in blood except where his tears had wiped it away. While themen who did this to him bound him to the fence he was pleding for his life. Well it did not work. He died in the hospital for his brutal injuries. Now the Mathew Shepard act will make gay bashing officailly a hate crime. I think all of us mommas who are for equal rights should speak up. Get this act legal. Obama recently met with Mathew's mother and promised to do his best to have this done. We have to help. Let's not let this young man's life have been taken in vain. R.I.P Mathew Shepard you'r justice is on it's way!!!

Why is it that we are making a crime committed on a homosexual more important than any other crime against a certain group of people? There are crimes committed by those who hate women, African Americans, Jews, Whites, Christians, Muslims, men, and list goes on. Isn't physical violence against anyone punishable? A person that does not approve of homosexuality is no more a crime that views of women not being authority, or any race not holding a certain status. I think that bill is biased.
