So stealing a cross somehow is giving this guy a death sentence to some of the Christians?
And also how do we even know it was politically motivated? It could also be some kids doing a prank, and I am not saying it wasn't politically motivated I am just pointing that out.
I disagreed with the supreme court on this thought I do not approve of what these crepes did in the first place. They broke the law, and I do think they deserve punishment, but the death penalty is going a Little bit too far, and basically going against the bill of rights.

Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
One of you will end up here next!
The Supreme Court ruled, the cross is now on private land (which I believe is what the ACLU is now questioning - whether the land deal was legal).
Really, who didn't see this coming-the cross being stolen/desecrated?
When people take it upon themselves to stomp all over a legal decision, we have a lawless society. The reason the cross was stolen doesn't matter.
It's the act in of itself that matters. Whatever the reason, the fact remains that some clowns took it upon themselves to decide what should and shouldn't be in a legal decision that had nothing to do with them except their lack of control, maturity, and respect.
As far as "hate" crimes, crime is crime. Theft is theft, murder is murder, etc.
Attaching special "conditions" diminishes the victims/survivors who are not victims of "hate" crimes. Just when does murder, e.g., become elevated to a "hate" crime and thus more horrendous than a murder where no "hate" condition is attached?
All this special interest/protection is ridiculous. Tell it to the parents who have had their children murdered but the crime is less serious because what - the children were heterosexual e.g.?
Nothing, yet. However, if it is discovered that this crime was committed because someone got butthurt over losing a court case, it deserves special treatment due to the contempt for the courts and the craven indifference to the rule of law.What makes this particular crime so special?
I prefer to see it as a validation of the courts when they are caught and get a contempt of court charge slapped on with it.I hope they catch the thieves and punish them in the usual manner. Giving "special treatment" to thieves only validates their stupid little protest as being somehow SPECIAL.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
