Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscapeLay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade. ~Gertrude Jekyll
A life without love is like a year without summer. ~Swedish Proverb
Summer afternoon - summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. ~Henry James

Senate poised to vote at any time on "hate crimes" legislation
Punishing wrong beliefs about homosexuality is its sole purpose
The Obama administration has signaled that it plans to secure passage of S.909, the "Hate Crimes" bill, this week. The House has already passed and the Senate is expected to vote this week on legislation that would create a new class of crimes based on the victim's "actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity." Even more troubling is that S.909 could create special protections for pedophiles. Democrats voted down an amendment to the bill that would have excluded pedophilia and other "sexual orientations" from the definition of "sexual orientation."
"If a mother hears that their child has been raped, and she slaps the assailant with her purse, she is now gone after as a hate criminal because this is a protected class," said Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas.
For years, AFA and other pro-family groups have issued warnings about federal Hate Crimes legislation. The reality is that the purpose of this bill is to silence those who speak out against homosexuality. If the legislation passes, pastors could be prosecuted under the federal inducement statute for preaching the biblical view of homosexuality. For example, a person could commit an act of violence against a homosexual individual and blame it on the pastor's sermon. Similar laws have been used to prosecute religious speech in the U.S. at the state level and abroad.
The Senate is poised to pass S. 909, the "Hate Crimes" bill, unless there are an overwhelming number of phone calls today.
Click here to get the direct telephone number for your senators, along with suggested talking points for your call. Call your senators today to demand politely, but firmly, that they vote against S.909. Congress has refused to define the term "sexual orientation," which means that all sexual orientations are protected.
Pastors, it is time to take a stand. Share this information with your members, and ask them to call.
I called my Senators, and it took me no more than 5 minutes to phone and leave a comment at both of their offices.
Please don't be silent! Act today!!

Of course...I do hope the little darlings don't grow up and wipe out my garden. :)
Below is the Mama Bunny. (sorry, this pic isn't great either as it was dusk) Her nest is to the right--just out of this shot.
