      This comes from the political Religious Right group the American family
      Association. As always with alerts from the right, read the ACTION section,
      and do the opposite. In this case, call your congressional representatives
      and demand that they SUPPORT the Hate Crimes Bill.

      WASHINGTON -- Rev. Don Wildmon, President of American Family Association,
      today urged Congress to oppose hate crimes legislation, which he predicted
      would lead to the prosecution of ministers and others in America who preach
      the word of God. Wildmon said, "President Clinton and the homosexual
      movement are willing to sacrifice the First Amendment of the Constitution in
      an effort to normalize homosexuality in American society. Federal hate
      crimes legislation is not necessary to protect anyone from violent acts. We
      have the state and federal criminal code for that."

      Wildmon noted the great irony of the President's veto of Commerce, Justice,
      State Appropriations bill for failure of Congress to pass the hate crimes
      legislation: "The President is willing to hold up funding for the entire
      Department of Justice, including the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the
      Drug Enforcement Agency, and all United States Attorneys - those agencies
      and individuals responsible for the enforcement of most federal criminal
      laws - for this unnecessary act. Obviously the President places a higher
      priority on the homosexual movement's agenda than on protection of the
      general public from crime in America."
