hateration, robertson style

I’m not the biggest fan of hate crimes laws because, as I see it, if you kill or beat the crap out of someone, you should go to jail regardless of your motivation.  But then I read something like this from Pat Robertson:

“The noose has tightened around the necks of Christians to keep them from speaking out on certain moral issues. And it all was embodied in something called the Hate crimes bill that President Obama said was a major victory for America. I’m not sure if America was the beneficiary. […] We have voted into office a group of people who are opposed to many of the fundamental Christian beliefs of our nation. And they hold to radical ideology, and they are beginning put people sharing their points of view into high office.”

Gotta love that knee-jerk hateration.  And Pat, you can still say all the cruel and hateful things you want about the gays–you just can’t beat them up for being one.  Got that?  And I can’t know for sure, but I think Jesus may be with me on this one.
