Bill Would Strip 'Sexual Orientation' From PA Hate Crime Law

(AgapePress) - Legislators in Pennsylvania have introduced a bill designed to remove language from a state "hate crimes" law that was used against Christian protestors in the "Outfest" case in Philadelphia. The arrests of the Christians allowed political opponents of the hate crimes law to say their warnings were ignored

Actually, kinda surprising, given that it happened in Philly, "Ground Zero of Blue Stater Hell."

Then again, given that the other 66 counties hate our guts, this bill may have been payback to the neo-Socialists running the city.

But I wonder, TM -- possible that the "gay" portion of the hate crimes bill is not entirely removed: Just that it can't be used as a weapon against civil protestors.
