There is a lot of discussion at the state and the national level regarding thought hate crimes. According to the Federal Government for purposes of statistical tracking, a thought hate crime is defined as:

crimes that manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity, including where appropriate the crimes of murder, non-negligent manslaughter; forcible rape; aggravated assault, simple assault, intimidation; arson; and destruction, damage or vandalism of property.

For purposes of sentencing guidelines, a thought hate crime is defined as:

a crime in which the defendant intentionally selects a victim, or in the case of a property crime, the property that is the object of the crime, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, or sexual orientation of any person.

There is a bill currently up for consideration to further enhance efforts to punish thought hate crimes. Under the old sentencing guidelines, it was a sentencing increase enhancement where the “offense level” is increased by three and increasing the jail time involved. The 2006 Federal Sentencing Guideline Manual is here. The new bill would instead change the sentencing guidelines and send money to states, local governments, and Indian Tribes for the purposes of enforcing thought hate crimes legislation. While providing funding for these prosecutions, it would also encourage some governments to add thought hate crimes statutes to the books to qualify for federal grants.

Legislation like this is trying to turn the tide of Darwinism from the havoc it causes in society. When the country was founded, it was a Christian nation that believed in the Creation, that we are all God’s children, and that we should be proper stewards over the earth and the animals thereon. This was an agrarian mind set where you should make the land fruitful and care for your animals.

Their ideas were wrong where skin color was concerned and there was a belief that this stewardship over animals extended to caring for the Negroes brought over in the slave trade. Believe it or not, Colonial America was incredibly racist and for a time thought that slavery was in a some sense humane because it was a way of caring for and feeding the Negroes who were considered coarse, less than fully human, unable to care for themselves in civilized society, and a corrupting influence. Many abolitionists wanted slavery to be ended because it was evil, not for any love of the Negroes. A common plan was to send the freed slaves back to Africa, to Liberia. When states began to vote to be free or slave states it was at least based in part on economics and prejudice. If your state’s economy was not heavily based on agricultural production, you became a free state which functionally excluded Negroes. While they may have had their “freedom” it was mostly the freedom to starve. Negroes were discriminated against, not allowed to own land and not allowed to reside in some cities. It was a very tough time.

There has been prejudice against the Jews, the Irish, the Chinese, the Japanese (concentration internment camps), homosexuals, protestants, Catholics, and a genocidal war against American Indians after the Civil War. Prejudice is in our history. It comes with freedom to think whatever you want to think. It has never been illegal before the last ten years. It was always illegal to rob, murder, rape, burglarize, or kidnap, along with other crimes, except for times of war and then all bets were off.

How Darwinism is the Father of the Push for Hate Crimes Legislation.

In 1859 Satan was given a wonderful tool to promote atheism or any other belief that would lead people away from God when Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species. Satan jives with anything that causes death, misery, and destroys Faith in God.

Darwin came up with a theory that allowed people under the guise of science to claim that the Bible is wrong. Interestingly, macro-evolution where a species actually becomes a different species has never been tested and proven. Every single bit of the evidence to show evolution as Darwin envisioned it is wrong. People make impressive diagrams, paintings, falsify pictures, suppress archaeological evidence, and have even tried to put Creationism on trial to prove it right, but no real science has appeared to support evolution. People believed it anyway because it fit their goals for a secular and godless society. Once God is out of the mental equation, there is nothing special about anyone really. Society is suddenly composed of evolved apes that learned to use tools. So, if evolution is real, why not help it along?

That is exactly what happened with the belief in eugenics. Nazis believed that there is a master Aryan race which should rule over all others. Nazis used the camps as a method of “racial hygiene” to get rid of undesirables, including Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, Gay Men, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and people with mental and physical disabilities. Nazis also “euthanized” other “undesirables” or sometimes allowed for compulsory sterilization of those considered a burden or not racially pure enough. Eugenics is also the modern precursor of abortion politics.

Nazi Eugenics policies were based on Darwinian Science and evolution. American bleeding heart secularists who can’t let us get back to teaching religious principles in school therefore have decided to criminalize prejudice. If you are sent to jail for 1 year for aggravated assault, you have been punished for your bad act. If you are sent to jail for five years because you committed the aggravated assault a person because you hate them in a prejudicial fashion, you have been punished for your bad thought.

There is a concept called mens rea in criminal law. You must have also had some intention of committing a crime to be guilty of a crime. That is the difference between first degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, negligent homicide, and other forms of crimes. It insures that people who may have killed someone purely by accident do not go to jail, it is the mental description of the intent of the actor, not to be confused with thought hate crimes.

Because Darwinism, atheism, secular humanism, and other purely rational thought logically leads to prejudice, the bleeding hearts among us have successfully implemented a plan to criminalize prejudice if you ever act out on them in a way deemed to be criminal. A+ for the idea of helping to improve society, D- for implementation.
