The new federal hate crimes law has all the potential to be a major attack on religious liberty and freedom of speech, according to top religious liberty attorneys.
The law was chosen the number one attack on religious liberty and freedom of speech in 2009, according to the Christian Anti-Defamation League.
Attorneys who defend religious rights agree: The recently enacted hate-crimes law is a threat to religious liberty.
“The very fact that this law elevates ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ to the same protected status as race – that in and of itself is a cataclysmic shift in policy,” said Mathew Staver, president of the religious liberty law firm Liberty Counsel and dean of the Liberty University Law School.
