WND Hate-Crimes Bill Lie Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A May 24 WorldNetDaily article uncritically repeats the claim that a hate-crimes bill before Congress "has been condemned as 'The Pedophile Protection Act'" without telling its readers the fact that such a claim is utterly false and fraudulent.

The article also repeats a claim that the bill would "leave Christian ministers open to prosecution should their teachings be linked to any subsequent offense, by anyone, against a homosexual person" without explaining why a minister who deliberately incites another to violence should not be held responsible for his behavior -- which touches on the fallacy -- also promoted by WND -- that the bill infringes on religious freedom, which it does not. Incitement to violence is not protected by the Constitution.
