PHB writes about how the Hate Crimes Act works.
“A crime is a hate crime only if it is
- Physically violent.
- A felony. That means anything that might put someone in prison for more than a year.
- Motivated by prejudice based on sexual orientation.
So verbal acts can never be hate crimes.”
Yet, wingnut christians are freaking out (JMG); they are still trying to promulgate their lies to the ignorant sheep who up to them for “truth”.
WND commenter: “This is an attempt to silence Christianity. They have no idea what a hornets nest they’ve opened up. I can’t wait until the first pink tutu wearing gay opens fire on a Pastor’s sermon.”
WTF?! Nobody is silencing any christian; ya can’t shut the motherfuckers UP. And dammit, I didn’t get my standard-issue pink tutu. Jesus, what a stupid fucker, please give this ‘moran’ some brains.
Erik Stanley, senior legal counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund says “Ultimately, he warned that the homosexual advocates who have pushed the “hate crimes” plan consider this law just the first step “toward silencing Christians.”
I don’t want to “silence christians” … I WANT them to freely practice their religion but GO DO IT OVER THERE and leave law-abiding citizens alone who do not wish to practice your fucking religion! And DO NOT LEGISLATE YOUR RELIGION ONTO MY LIFE.
LIES: Churches will be silenced from the pulpit. Pastors will be arrested.
REALITY: Religious speech IS protected. The authorities will NOT come and “get you” for preaching from the bible. Religion, a choice, has ALWAYS been protected but sexual orientation, which is INNATE, has not been protected until now.
Also, religious people are protected under the same Act against violence committed on them because of their religious beliefs.
WHY do these “christians” LIE like they do? WHY do they want to promote violence against kids because of their perceived or actual orienfukintation. WHY do christianists want kids to be harmed. WHY do “christians” take advantage of ignorance (lack of knowledge) and purposely deceive those in ignorance?
