"We are grateful for your support of legislation related to the proper care. treatment and recognition of members of our armed forces and our veterans. However, legislation pertaining to national security issues, the elimination of terrorism and the terrorists, the prevention of illegal immigration and of amnesty for illegal aliens, the repeal of Obamacare, the achievement of US energy independence, the restoration of the US economy, the preservation of our Second Amendment rights, and the elimination of Common Core is extremely important to us. As defenders of our nation and human freedom, how could we feel otherwise?

"Your perseverance and concern for others are qualities needed by today's youth who could indeed benefit from your example. I hope that under your leadership the citizens of Massachusetts be made more aware of the threat posed by radical Islam and that you will be able to use your office to prohibit the influx of illegal aliens into the Commonwealth....We wish you success in your campaign and look forward to your service to the citizens of Massachusetts and to the United States of America."

I am honored and humbled to received this endorsement, especially so, since I have great respect for those who have served and are now serving our country as members of the armed forces. Finished reading

Scott on the Broadside, October 13, 2014

In my "Broadside" interview on NECN with Jim Braude, he seemed to believe that comparing homosexuality with pedophilia and bestiality was sufficient to qualify one as a "hate group."
Here is the actual text of existing Mass law:
Click here to continue reading ...
Section 34: Crime against nature
Whoever commits the abominable and detestable crime against nature, either with mankind or with a beast, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than twenty years.

This is, of course, the common law, drawn directly from Leviticus 18:22-23:
22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.

Were the founding fathers a "hate group" Jim?
Has God changed His mind and decided to now condone what every previous generation from Adam was instructed to avoid and condemn?
