Language & Intention

What if the kids who set fire to a cross in front of the church said they were really, really, really sorry? And it wasn't their intention to hurt anyone's feelings? Would that be OK? Could they be elected mayors of large cities along the gulf coast?

It was a "hate Crime"!!! Oh do we know that? Maybe so, maybe not. Has anyone asked them what they were thinking after the flammables whooshed? Was it, "Take that *igra!", or, "Wow, that's cool"?

I'm against criminalizing thoughts. I'm thinking very hateful things about Algore right now!!!

Uh oh, I hear a knock at the door.
