One in six hate crimes are motivated by the victim's sexual orientation. Yet Federal laws don't protect these people. Please tell your Senators to support the Matthew Shepard Act.

I just contacted by Senators. I will also do what I can to help spread the word about this.

Aren't the laws set up to protect anyone from being attacked. How does someone know if who they are attacking is Gay? Why should there be a classification. Just prosecute the S.O.B. for what he did to a person. It seems to me that if you attempt to prosecute the criminal under a law that sets the victim aside as something more than just a human being, you draw more hateful attention.
