Eventually these laws are going to be used to shut down opinions that doesn't agree with the powers that be. The second amendment is almost gone, the first is on the way out too, all the rest will follow.

Back? They have never really left us. The idea that one crime has more "hate" than another crime is pure nonsense.

The days are coming "declares the Sovereign Lord, " when I will send a famine through the land --- not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.
Amos 8:11

Sheila Jackson-Lee

A federal "hate crimes" bill that officially is to enhance punishments for "violence motivated by bias that is a relic of slavery" but is feared by Christians as a potential bludgeon against basic biblical teachings has been returned to the congressional agenda by Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee of Texas.

The proposal had been stymied during the Bush administration by the president's threat of a veto but President-elect Barack Obama's own website has promised an expansion of federal "hate crimes" laws.

The bill, the "David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009," has been pending in Congress in one form or another since at least 2007 but never was advanced into law because of stated opposition from President Bush, who found it unneeded and probably unconstitutional.
