Group Think

On Thursday, the Massachusetts Senate votes on a bill containing draconian language that would criminalize criticism of homosexuality published on Web sites and other media with fines of up to a thousand dollars and imprisonment. The bill would write following into the Massachusetts General Laws:
"Whoever publishes any false material whether written, printed, electronic, televised, or broadcast with intent to maliciously promote hatred of any group of persons in the commonwealth because of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, or disability shall be guilty of libel and shall be punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars or by imprisonment for not more than one year, or both."
Does this mean I cannot point out that animals do not have anal sex because no animal would put up with it?  It goes against their nature.

Call Senate President Therese Murray: 617-722-1500 
(Leave a message if you have to.)


Tell her: Do NOT pass S2283 on Thursday. DO NOT attempt to criminalize our right of free speech on pro-family values.
