And false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie really hates the truth. See United Church of Christ Leaders Hail Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crime Prevention Act.
Matthew Shepard wasn’t killed by hate speech or because he was gay. Even if he was killed for being gay it wasn’t like his killers just got back from a Focus on the Family “Love won out” conference. He was killed by thugs.
In a major irony that will be lost on fakes like Chuck, I support stronger penalties for the killers of Shepard and Byrd than they do. I’m OK with the death penalty but they oppose it. I guess they must hate gays and blacks, eh?
So we don’t need “hate crime / hate speech” legislation at all. Those laws are just trojan horses designed to silence opposing views and especially religious speech. It is a double assault on the 1st Amendment rights of Christians. Chuck doesn’t mind because he never teaches anything from the Bible (whether accurately or not) that the world would find unpopular.
