    To be fair. They have no problem with the anti lynching bill its self. They simply want to make sure that LGBTQ people are excluded from its protections.


    Can anyone give me a civilized reason why this might be the case? I mean this isnt even biblical.

    After all, arent you supposed to stone gays to death anyways instead of lynching them?

    Incorrect. They don't believe the bill should list groups. They believe lynching should be a felony, regardless of the reason for the lynching.

    Have you not heard Trump 'joking' that Pence would like to hang all gays? That is your fundamentalist Christian Right...and the ones Chris Hedges talks about tend to have Liberty in their name. ;)

    but do you in the States support lynching anyway?

    Seems like another bit of double speak by NBC to confuse the public - that is unless in their minds gays are separate species and not covered by the bill, therefore they have to be specified. Looks like things are getting ridiculouser and ridiculouser.

    Long story short, these groups are the ones that give most christians a bad name. They wear the cross on their sleeve and keep the bible on the shelf, ignoring most of the messages in the book.

    The law explicitly lists several groups who have been subject to these kinds of things before, including LGBTQ.

    As crawdad says, this is just an attempt for them to drum up their base.

    Not sure why we even need this bill. Is it not already illegal to lynch someone? If it is not already illegal then yes we most definitely need this bill. But I think murder is already illegal in all 50 states.

    How would an anti-lynching bill not protect LGBT? Does the anti-lynching bill protect everyone? If not, its a bad bill.
