Letter to Senator Bennet

Dear Senator Bennet:

Thank you for your considered reply to my email expressing concern for so-called Hate Crimes Legislation being considered right now. You stated in your reply that “the line between lawful speech or thought … and unlawful criminal conduct must be drawn with care.” I disagree. The line must be drawn, period. The line needs to be very bold.

We do not punish people in this country for what they think. If you are unclear on this, please read the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and then encourage your contemporaries in Congress to do the same. It would seem you all need to refresh your perspectives.

(my name)
