Critics of the homosexual movement, however, said yesterday the case should be treated as a hate crime against Christians because Mr. Gutierrez killed Mrs. Stachowicz after she shared her religious beliefs.

“Hate crime” legislation is a stupid idea. It’s an invitation to the Thought Police. (The Adventures of Commander Cressida Dick of the Diversity Directorate! Stamping out unacceptable thoughts in the name of diversity!) It does not cease to be stupid merely because the hatred is directed toward Christians. I don’t care if a creep like Gutierrez hates me. I care if he tries to harm me. Christians are sealing their own death warrants if they give Caesar the power to prosecute for Incorrect Thoughts.
