I know PL are working to reduce abortion, limit abortion and end abortion.

I support the freedom and practice of all religion - and belive in the respect of each.

True enough - and people are outraged by it and call those shows, comics and the like hatefull and often scream foul.

Do you then believe in freedom of religion but not freedom of speech?

Could you provide some links on that? I'm not familiar with American law, but in the UK a hate crime against a Christian is just as illegal as a hate crime against a Jew.

I do very much believe in the freedom of speech.

I don't know what proof to show you - but to date, since hate crimes legislation was passed, I personally have never heard of a hate crime against a christian.

What is the faith of the religious victims of hate crimes? 7

In 2005 -- the latest available FBI data -- the breakdown of religiously motivated hate crimes by religion are:





Religion
Incidents
Total adult
population in the U.S.
Incidents per million

Judaism
848
2.83 million
299.5

Islam
128
1.10
116.4

Christian
115
159.0
0.7

Other religions
93
3.8
24.5

Anti-multiple religions
39
-
-

Atheism, Agnosticism, etc
4
27.5
0.15

I'm sorry these figures are rather old, but this was the first thing I found. Clearly hate crimes against Christians are prosecuted in the US, since 2005 alone shows 115 incidents.


I would bet money that you have not heard of these because the media gets more mileage out of saying that hate crimes against Christians are ignored, rather than reporting the facts.

Actually if you kill a Christian BECAUSE they are Christian it is also a hate crime.

I understand what you are saying.
