Where a warning is a hate crime
If one sees someone running straight towards a precipice and says nothing to warn the person, is he doing right or wrong? Is it not an act of kindness to warn a person of the consequences if he is engaged in an action that will end in his certain demise? Is it wrong to warn a person of a certain dire consequence of an action he is engaged in? Or is it one’s moral obligation, one’s obligation before God, to issue the warning? The Bible is full of warnings on the consequences of sin, the consequences of wrong moral conduct. In fact you could say that the consequences of sin is the main thrust of the Bible. The Bible states flat out that fornicators, adulterers, and people guilty of homosexual conduct will (if they don’t repent and reform) go to an eternal hell. Does this message constitute hate speech? Well, it does for a great many people in this modern world -- particularly those engaged in these kinds of moral behavior. They just don’t want to hear it. They don’t want to be told that. They just want to hear nice things, things that will make them happy. They don’t want to hear that their conduct is wrong. That is where our hate speech laws come from. They come from people who just don’t want to hear that their behavior is wrong. People who just don’t want to hear warnings about the consequences of their behavior. People without the slightest fear of God who believe they can do anything they wish without consequences. So they have turned the tables on the Christian. They have made it a hate crime for someone to warn them that their conduct is wrong. So they have won the contest. They have made it illegal for anyone to tell them they are wrong.
