Hate crimes. Barney Frank was a co-sponsor and major proponent of the onerous Hate Crimes bill passed by the US House last week, Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, which would punish thoughts, rather than actions, regarding sexual orientation and "gender identity" in America. The terms "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" remain undefined in the legislation.
