Statement of Eugene Delgaudio on House Passage of Thought Control
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio issued the following statement after the House recently passed the Kennedy Thought Control Bill.
"In a deplorable act of hitting the pro-family movement twice at once, the House of Representatives passed the Ted Kennedy Thought Control Bill (or so-called "Hate Crimes Bill") while the Nation was focused on the Roberts confirmation hearings," stated Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio. "What is worse is that they attached this outrageous legislation to the Children's Safety Act. It is nothing short of disgusting that the radical homosexual lobby would stoop to the level of politicizing the important issue of protecting our kids by putting this poison pill in the bill.
"Public Advocate will not stand idly by while the Republican congressional leadership allows this legislation, which would punish thoughts instead of actions, and the stealth nomination of John Roberts to sail through.
"Instead, Public Advocate calls on Congress to pass legislation that would increase the penalties for all violent federal offenses, whether or not the offense is politically correct."
