Clergy support legislation banning hate crimes

The Washington Post reported yesterday that, “more than 300 clergy from a variety of faith and denominations will fan out over Capitol Hill to preach a unified gay-rights message to members of Congress: Pass the hate crimes bill that would give sexual orientation and gender identity the same federal protection as race, and pass the employment non-discrimination bill that would protect gays.”

The group included Bishop Gene Robinson and the Rev. Susan Russell of Integrity.
