Boatright gets it right

For the second time this year, I agree with Sara Boatright’s DTH column. In “New Hate Crime Law will not save lives” she writes :

The fact remains that hatred is a bastardized offshoot of feeling and opinion, and we cannot outlaw hate any more than we can outlaw love. We can outlaw expressions of love, such as gay marriage, and we can outlaw expressions of hate, such as rape or murder.

Although I probably disagree with her on the issue of gay marriage, her overall point is well taken.
