Popular opinion is calling this a hate crime, but why is it that just because you may disagree with this law you’re automatically labeled as a “hater?”

When the politically correct crowd are all chanting the same thing, it is easy to lose a logical perspective. Perry Noble does an excellent job of bringing a logical, and Biblical balance to this issue.
