    Hate laws... Truly restrictive to free expression (and unworkable)

    "But she was worried that legitimate attempts to evangelise across communities would be deemed unacceptable in the light of the bill."

    "Hanne Stinson, executive director of the British Humanist Association, said today that although there was a need to protect people from hatred.."

    "But critics of the bill say that it is poorly drafted, unclear and unworkable. One difficulty is that ‘hatred’ is not defined, and is in any case not a criminal offence. Many lawyers argue that criminalising incitement to something that is not an offence itself is incoherent."

    I am sure my recognizing that legislating against "hate" is a preposterous thing, originally came from a Father Neuhaus article.
