Where are they voting to protect pedophiles?

Nowhere of course. They are not even mentioned in the original bill, which states "Sexual Orientation", which is not what pedophilia falls under.

Spin spin spin.

That's not even the worst of it! The original hate crimes legislation protects Raëlians but not pediatricians! And it protects Mongolians, but not bartenders!

The whole thing is outrageous, I tell you!

Not to worry fellow THINKERS. Pretty soon s. rene, PCM, pgh, Charlotte and the rest will be on here to denounce the OP for citing a "less than credible" source.

I guess he thought we wouldn't know who "redstate" is. Although I think Hannity or O'Reilly had it last night.

Let's see how does the loop go; Drudge, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, redstate, worldnet and then DIRECTLY INTO THE OTHERWISE EMPTY HEADS OF THE RIGHTIES ON C-D.

Media Matters debunked this lie.

Fox News falsely claims Dems voted to "protect," "defend" pedophiles | Media Matters for America

It was just wingers playing amendment games to score cheap political shots.

The problem wiht this is that the APA doesn't list pedophilia as an orientation.

It lists it as a disorder.
