Bullying laws are not needed.
Herassing, hitting people is already condemned behavior. All that was needed was for schools to stop tolerating it. In my day, the Coach turned his back and "didn't see" when the guys would pick on the sissy kid. It would toughen the kid up! All the Coach has to do is turn around and stop the bullies. We don`t need Gov`ment to waste time and money on bad behavior that is already against law and school policies.

Elkingo has a point. GOP is probably concerned that bullying laws will be used to suppress students who aren't bullying. Like the five kids in california, who were sent home for wearing an american flag. Would he be punishable under the bullying laws? Is he victimizing someone by expressing his beliefs? One judge with a pet special interest could use this law to punish almost any behavior.

Also note that this exempts neonazi children who sincerely believe Jews to be an inferior race, or white supremacist children who are morally convinced that black people are subhuman.

Anyone who 'sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction` as the article says would know the bible in no way encourages the bullying of anyone. Jesus showed compassion towards "sinners" while bashing the hell out of religious nutjobs like the pharisees. That`s what these right-wing fundamentalist republicans essentially are; self-righteous, narrow-minded pharisees.
