People are jumping the gun on what this Act is really all about.

Actually there is a... "Rule of Construction" which specifically provides that "Nothing in this Act... shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct protected from legal prohibition by, or any activities protected by the free speech or free exercise clauses of, the First Amendment to the Constitution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Shepard_Act

This is no more about taking away people's right to free speech as the case against Westboro Baptist Church was.
