PA Court Says Expansion of Hate Crimes Law Unconstitutional

Not much time to blog tonight, but you should know about this.  The Commonwealth Court struck down language that expanded hate-crimes legal protections for persons based on sexual orientation and physical disability.  Repent America and beloved psycho-Christian Michael Macavage took the Legislature to task for adding these protections onto an agricultural bill.

Here's what Pam has to say about it:

You know what?  Macavage has a good point.  They snuck this legislation onto an unrelated bill instead of passing a good law on its own merits.  It is unfortunate that the wingnuts like Macavage and Diane Gramley get to crow about their “triumph” in denying hate crime protections to people with disabilities and people who are homosexual, however this was a poorly planned maneuver.
