I think hate-speech laws are beyond the slippery slope type of dangerous abrogations of liberty. Unpopular speech should be protected.
Is it hate-speech to speak against any practice or act that your faith considers sinful?

In my example of Leviticus 20:13, would you really support even the more hardcore interpretations, such as:
# NIV: (New International Version) "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."
Oh noes! A Christian can't drag a gay man to death any more for being gay? What ever shall we do! Why, what's next making it a crime to burn a Muslim to death for being a Muslim? What is this world coming to! :@@Pure Sarcasm)
Good job, stop hatred and bigotry from ruining other peoples lives.
I think any speech should be protected.

Many of you non-Christians will be happy to know that Christians are about to be censored.
I know where my limit is...I'm curious as to where yours might be...

No more will your pastor be able to declare the truth about Islam or homosexuality because it will be considered a hate crime.
I am all for free speech, but not for hate speech.
I don't think people should be thrown into jail for their views, but spewing hatred and bigotry and ignorance has no positive impact on society.
