I have linked here a letter that was written by Senator Jim DeMint, urging pastors specifically to be vocal in their opposition to so-called “hate crimes” legislation. As I have pointed out several times on this blog, hate crimes legislation is nothing but an anti-Christian powerplay to give those in power a sword with which to demonize the saints. Even if one were to leave out the anti-Christian bias of hate crimes, the legislation represents a poverty of intellect. What murder or rape is not hateful? The crime is what it is, and justice is what is at stake. When hate crimes legislation enters, it seeks to make some murders really bad (as though others aren’t?). The murder of a homosexual is as evil and wicked as the murder of a heterosexual Christian.
