Ignorance Strikes Again!

Behold! Another gem from the Tuscaloosa News!

I am particularly taken with the fact that pitfalls of persecution in the name of God - the most famous example of this being, of course, Jesus Christ who, as you recall, was crucified - is completely lost on this individual.

Who is spreading this rumor that a federal hate-crimes bill will allow pastors who preach against homosexuality to be arrested? I believe we all have First Amendment rights, and I believe we all have Freedom of Religion in the United States of America.

Once again, simpleton, hate crimes and hate speech are two very different things. I don't think any pastor who is worth his salt as an interpreter of religious doctrine is at risk of committing either.
