Not only has Herseth-Sandlin has lost all connection to SD Conservatives whom she is to be representing, but she has thrown out the Constitution so the statists can draft their own to further their morally corrupt agenda.
Not only is HR 1913 unconstitutional, it will allow pedophiles and other sexual predators to reign free under the guise of discrimination.
H.R. 1913(Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009) is not about stopping crime but is designed to give “actual or perceived” sexual preference or “gender identity” (which is still classified as a mental disorder) the same legal status as race. The DSM IVR (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual used by psychologists and psychiatrists to diagnose mental disorders) lists more than 30 “sexual orientations” and “Gender Identity Disorders,” including pedophilia. The hate crimes bill does not limit “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” and, thus, includes all these disorders and fetishes. The use of “actual or perceived” includes those with disorders or deviant sexual preferences and those who do not have such disorders or fetishes, so long as it is alleged that the person charged allegedly “thought” the other person had such disorder or fetish…
Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented: “Sexual orientation and gender identity include pedophilia and every imaginable deviant fetish. Cross-dressers and pedophiles find refuge in this so-called hate crimes bill, while veterans and grandmas are left to fend for themselves. Obviously, this bill is not about the prevention of crime but is all about pushing a radical sexual anarchy. This bill will crush free speech and trample free exercise of religion.”
I am beside myself. The last call I made to Herseth-Sandlin’s office, I was told she was NOT for this legislation.
So Miss Stephanie..what changed? Conservative Christian South Dakotans would like to know what happened to your SD roots and your oath to uphold the Constitution to protect all South Dakotans, especially those that can not protect themselves aka our innocent, vulnerable children.
