Has ANY Church EVER done that with Homosexuals
If Your Church tells you that Homosexuality is wrong. Thats not Hate Crime, its an opinion (maybe a truthful one...but still its only delivering a statement)
If your Church tells you that you must hang homosexuals, that IS a Hate Crime...but how many churches do that
For the most part, probably not very many at all. Certainly not any that I would ever consider a "Christian" Church.
With that being said, I am still sure there are plenty of little rogue groups who WOULD do violence to homosexuals just for being gay. I think that goes without saying.
