FRC Bears False Witness

HRC accused the FRC of bearing false witness with their ad criticizing including gays in Hate crimes laws. Current law addresses hate crimes on the basis of race and religion. The legislation proposed would add gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability to hate crimes laws. The FRC has this web ad in opposition.

FRC is obviously lying as HRC described in the ad. I happen to oppose hate crimes laws on principle. The law isn't about thought crimes - so it's not saying that preaching leviticus would be illegal. It does give enhanced penalties if the violent crime was motivated by bias.

Perkins isn't consistant on this point. He just doesn't want gays included in the laundry list.
