In this small paperback, author John Aman, who worked extensively with Dr. Kennedy, explains why “hate crimes” are not crimes of hate. So-called hate crime laws violate equal justice under the law by criminalizing thought. These laws are an affront to religious liberty and a threat to freedom of speech and should be opposed.
Federal statutes permit prosecution of crimes purportedly committed on the basis of a person’s race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, disability, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Labeled “hate crimes,” the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI, and campus security authorities are now required to collect and publish “hate crime” statistics.
With the growing intolerance of the biblical Christian view on the sanctity of marriage and human life, Christians who stand in opposition to same-sex marriage, abortion, and other unbiblical positions, face greater possibility of prosecution for their beliefs do to "hate crime" laws.
