I think people often miss the point about what delineates what hate-crimes are. I have a concern about how sexual predators violate others without regard to how those violations have ruined their victims' lives, have imposed destruction of the victim's health, body tissues, spiritual peace with Christ, or the victim's mental health. It seems that family members often protect their own when they know their relatives are violators. The world has come to accept sexual assault as some form of expression that needs to be allowed to be released lest the predator not be accepted by others because of sexuality preferences or sexual orientation. Unfortunately, the focus or trend is the "anything goes". What's worse is how pedophiles or homosexual rapists purport their physical imposition on their victims as something others have to accept as a form of their self-expression—or how the predators purport to feeling discriminated against under their guise as homosexuals if they can't do what they do--which consists of degrading and depriving their victims of their human, civil and U.S. Constitutional rights. Maybe this scenario is more like hatred, vindictiveness, or psychotic on the part of predators. Yet, where are those who will stand up against human trafficking, pedophiles, homosexual pedophiles or rapists? Who is standing up for the victims? Pedophiles affect their victims as had Nazi’s affected their victims—blatant disregard for another human being’s human rights.
