“Hate Speech”


Michael Medved was debating a certain pro-homosexual marriage activist. Part of the conversation went like this:

Michael Medved: Homosexual people and heterosexual people have exactly the same rights under traditional marriage. They can all marry anyone they like of the opposite sex. The law does not treat anyone differently based on their sexual preferences.

Activist: That’s hate speech!

Now, it shouldn’t be hard to identify the logical fallacy here. I hope that the vast majority of people from all sides of this debate can identify it readily.

(Hint: It’s not what Michael Medved said.)
