Hate speech laws are ABOUT assault and death, Dishonest One. Yet YOU said that homosexuals shouldn't win law suits regarding such speech, thereby throwing them under the bus in your desperation to be on the opposite of anything I say.I don't take people to court when they slur another group.
If someone tells me a supposed joke about homosexuals, I tell them that it's not funny to me, as too many homosexuals have committed suicide over put-downs. I am very up front with others who are homophobic, whether in a group in a cafe, or otherwise.
That is how people learn what is acceptable, or repulsive to others.
But if I were to laugh at the joke in the pretence that I enjoyed it, it would encourage the "joke-teller" to carry on.
Unless it's a matter of life and death, I would not report people, or take them to court ... as freedom of speech of others is essential to my own freedom of speech.
That, and the fact that you would discriminate against homosexuals based on their religion, proves you don't care about them. You USE them to further your crusade.
