ok, so I ran across this little nugget this morning after I got home from church..
it appears that not only will he be charged with the hate-crime, but also this little gem as well:
Muslim activists had called on Pace University to crack down on hate crimes after the incidents. As a result, the university said it would offer sensitivity training to its students.
now why am I posting this you ask?
well, a quick search for the phrase "bible burning" on the popular www.youtube.com site turns up 347 different videos…
do you think that ANY of those are going to possibly be charged with hate-crimes???
even if every Christian activist in the country rallied in defiance of this, I can promise you that no sensitivity training classes would be required..
gotta love the politics of the good ol U.S.A.
