    Of course The hate crime bill is hypocritical and full of lies about Christians. This is the pagan way, that is why there is no compromise with evil for, what do good and evil have in common? Christ was falsely accused and we also will be.
    I'm 60 years old and have watched this generation turn its back on GOD and as He has promised He will fix it, in His time.
    Keep living the Christian life, pray for and help those who you can and turn to the peace that Christ promises.

    This is another step forward to silence those who oppose Barack Obama and his immoral policies. A move towards authoritarianism.

    The glaring, and perhaps blinding, irony of the so-called hate crimes bill is this: it is being promoted and advanced by the very people who are filled with hatred for faithful Christians/Catholics. Such hatred was perfectly exemplified by Perez Hilton against Carrie Prejean when he lavished her with verbal abuse for her answer to his question about homosexual marriage.

    Not only is the so-called hate crimes bill glaringly ironic, but it is also very, very hypocritical. The homosexual activists and so-called "pro-choice" people are the ones who are often filled with hatred, prejudice, and hostility towards faithful Christians. Such hypocrisy ought to be exposed.

    Finally, the so-called hate crimes bill is based, not on facts, but on speculations or even outright lies. We just need to challenge the basis of the arguments for this bill to see how empty the arguments are and how they are based on lies and pure fantasies.

    P.S. Since we are in the midst of a culture war that, in fact has eternal consequences, perhaps we need to stop and reconsider how effective or ineffective or inadequate or even unrealistic it is to simply demand that politicians that are hostile to authentic Christian/Catholic values adopt those same values. Perhaps every time we pray for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life, we should also pray for more vocations to governmental politics so that more and more and more faithful Christians/Catholics may be called to the political life, and that they may have the courage, faith and strength to accept such a call from our Lord.

    Deacon Fournier's article is a sobering assessment of where we are with this issue today, but he's a bit mistaken in saying where we are heading, in that we are already there. Public arguments against homosexual marriage and statutory privileges for homosexuals are already often proscribed by by regulation, not law, as "hate speech." In some organizations, especially public ones, employees will be reprimanded and required to take "sensitivity" and "inclusiveness" workshops.

    Please sign my name as "HB"-- I've already seen it happen in my company.
