This is a strange one.
In the following Philly.com story, it's hard to tell if we are dealing with with an ordinary advocacy journalism, or an outbreak of religion-specific "Kellerism" (click here for background), or maybe a case of a sloppy journalist, or two, not being specific enough in noting the origin of a particularly loaded phrase -- "hate speech."
As a former GetReligionista said, when sending in the URL for this one:
Did the judge call it "hate speech" or is the reporter deciding/siding with one side? I honestly can't tell...
Me neither, to be blunt. So here is the top of the story:
A controversial group of black street preachers who spew hate speech at whites, Asians, gays, women and some blacks they find objectionable, has a right to continue preaching, the state Superior Court has ruled.
