"....HARASSMENT BY COMMUNICATION OR ADDRESS...MOTIVATED BY HATRED TOWARD THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED...SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER OR GENDER IDENTITY OF ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS."

A sermon w/scriptures from the Bible on homosexuality would constitute "communication or address," and whether it's out of love or hatred - you and I both know that the liberal left always interprets preaching as hatred (when it can and should be done in love). So, such preaching will be considered intentional hate offenses towards homosexuals, and now it can by law be forbidden.

Is there a fine, jail time? I don't know. Is it Constitutional? - certainly not, and it MUST BE STRUCK DOWN, REVERSED. This can't remain on the books. I'm no longer a resident of PA - all PA Freepers need to consider how to communicate their outrage to their reps.

Being unconstitutional is no longer a sure protection. We must ensure laws like this never get passed, or sure as gay rights they will be foisted on us by a diverse minded SCOTUS. Like the one now that thinks diversity is more important than constitutional guarantees.

I would assume the uttering of the politically incorrect term for whomsoever you happen to be speaking of could put you in violation. In other words saying fag instead of gay or colored instead of black could get you arrested.

Well, I think it said "exclusive of" and listed, among other things, the "communication or address." Because otherwise, freedom of speech is GONE. All you'd have to do is mutter "bitch" at someone and be guilty of communication motivated by gender.

But this, if it does pass, could really backfire on folks. After all, any interracial robbery could be prosecuted as a hate crime. An enterprising lawyer could make a killing
