    1: Hate Crime legislation needs to be taken completely off the books. If someone murdered your ass, it's because they hated you. Nuf said.

    2: Crime will never be 100% abolished, but the best way to reduce it is to free up personal ownership and concealed carry of firearms; the Left opposes this, which necessarily means the Left is ok with the 'hate crimes' you mentioned continuing. It's irrational for the Left to accuse Christian Conservatives of being responcable for crimes against gays when we're the one's who wanted to arm those gays so it wouldn't happen in the first place.

    3: 'Gay'Rights' is just a tool for class warfare. Gays have every civil right heteros have, no exceptions. There never was gay-slavery. There never were gay-oly fountains, bus seating, or gay-only schools. Gays didn't have it that bad to begin with, and it's heaven now. Gays have nothing to complain about.

    4: In France, for example, most Civil Unions are of hetero couples. There never was any prohibition on sexual orientation for gays to point to and claim discrimination. Heteros ever had the right to marry someone of the same-sex for gays to point to and claim second-class status or discrimination.

    5: Gays don't care about what marriage is for, they're only in it for the money and a feeling of belonging, when in fact they never will be the same as heteros.

    6: Heteros seem to be in the marriage business for the exact same reasons, so **** everyone, a pox on both your houses. The state of Marriage today evidences where we are in the Cycle of Democracy, in that we're only concerned with voting ourselves more money.

    I'll have to think about that. I know what you're saying, but I also know that when people say they're straight, nobody automatically slaps a label on them, makes them all about their lean, and gets all squicked out.

    IMO part of the public relations problem gays have is in being lumped together with tranys.

    Sure, there are many perfectly respectable transsexuals, but the public doesn't notice/remember them because they are ordinary people, the bland into life.

    What people remember and generally associate with tranys are big herry men with 5 o-clock shadows and deep voices, badly putting on way to much makeup and gody outfits while channeling their inner diva.

    I live in America. I know a lot of Christians - they're everywhere. And as far as I'm aware, none of them have ever committed a hate crime against a gay person. I'm not trying to claim this is a majority, a plurality, or even a very significant minority. It clearly isn't.

    I'd be curious to know if Capt. Taylor's town had hate crime legislation in the recent past. Several states didn't which would obviously tend to truncate a hate crime investigation. I would also wonder how many crimes go unreported. But I could fathom it - in a smaller town it's not hard to believe statistically. This is a huge country.

    I absolutely agree the picketers were wrongly charged - and their charges were later dropped. Dropping hate crime legislation WITH IT, though, was the wrong move. They never qualified under the definition of a hate crime in the first place, so it wasn't a problem with the law - it was a problem with the enforcement.
    The victim in your first link was a victim because someone threw a rock through his window and set his house on fire. The criminals became criminals when the rock broke the glass and the fire took to the house. I don't give a rat's ass about their motivation or about the victim's sex life. They committed a crime and should be subject to no more and no less punishment than if they had perpetrated the same crime against Pat freakin Robertson.

    Well, I think that depends. I think you have a point, and I think there are certainly people in the LGBT community who very intentionally put their sexuality on the table. But sexuality is also an indication of romantic attraction.

    And I also think it's unavoidable. The issue is discrimination, and the discrimination this cause is addressing is discrimination aimed at people of a certain sexuality. In order to fight for their cause, they have to identify the cause.

    How could you argue that... that's like saying male on male porn doesn't have much to do with reality either.

    You haven't followed my discussions with CT, I take it?

    No, it's not. Being a person who is either Lesbian, Gay, Bi, or Transgender doesn't make that all of who you are.

    True. Honestly, I think hate crime legislation is most useful for simply keep statistics about how often hate crimes occur. The motivational factor of a hate crime can certainly be covered to the degree it needs to be for sentencing by other categories that have nothing to do with hate crimes. Intent, pre-meditated, etc. I don't really think the source of that matters in the sentencing, but it's good for us to know how much it happens.
