Legislating Hate Crimes for Some People

President Obama has recently signed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, extending the definition of federal hate crimes to include a person’s sexual orientation.  This is a major victory for the gay rights community and fulfills a campaign promise President Obama made last year.  Though there are many concerns about the bill itself, the comments made by the President when he signed the bill are even more alarming.  As the President hopes, should people truly be allowed to live and love any way they choose to?  On today’s program, Dr. Mohler notes the dangers that come with legislating what constitutes a hate crime.
