In Slipup, Anti-Gay Okla. Lawmakers Vote to Strip Race, Religion Protections :: EDGE Dallas
Oklahoma accidentally voted to strip some protections based on race and religion because they cited the wrong statute.
They were trying to remove those protections based on sexuality - Oklahoma doesn't want to abide by the recent federal change that adds sexuality-based hate crimes to the list. They cited the wrong statute and accidentally stripped some protections based on race or religion.
The bill in question prevents local law enforcement from sharing any information with the feds about a hate crime if Oklahoma does not recognize the crime as a hate crime. So, if someone commits a religious hate crime in Oklahoma right now, they are legally barred from sharing information with the feds.
Why they would want to remove this protection from homosexuals is beyond my powers of imagination.
