Daily Mail reports that in England:

Teachers are branding thousands of children racist or homophobic following playground squabbles. 

More than 20,000 pupils aged 11 or younger were last year put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word ‘gaylord’.

According to Infowars.com:

This is a clear example of how hate crime laws have brazenly been hijacked by the state to get children institutionalized on criminal databases at an early age. This is about the state dictating what your child can think and say – it’s the thought police on steroids.

Hopefully this isn’t happening in the USA and won’t happen here. This is, however, an excellent example of why conservatives are against designating some crimes as “hate” crimes. Punishing people for a crime is possible, but punishing people for their motive crosses a line that produces problems rather than solving them, in my opinion.

Legislating morality isn’t possible. Teaching love and respect for others is possible.

Jesus knew that morality is accomplished when people are taught to love and respect one another.

‘You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:18

Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  Matthew 22:37-39

Judeo-Christian values, if truly practiced, will serve America better than a government database where names are kept of those who have been labeled by others who are pandering to the government agency involved.
