Federal "Hate Law" Will Persecute You
Focus on the Family Action Founder James C. Dobson, Ph.D., today issued the following statement in response to President Bush's pledge to veto H.R. 1592, the Hate Crimes Act, if it reaches his desk:
"We applaud the president's courage in standing up for the Constitution and the principle of equal protection under the law. The American justice system should never create second-class victims, and it is a first-class act of wisdom and fairness for the president to pledge to veto this unnecessary bill."
