Hate Crime Legislation Creates a Two-Tier Justice System

It appears that the White House is having the same problems we are with this bill, [the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007, H.R. 1592]: Most Americans want to prevent violent crime and when we can't, severely punish those responsible. What we - and apparently the White House - do not understand is how a bill that creates a two-tier justice system and paves the way for censoring pastors is going to help prevent violent crime or punish those who commit them.
