16. Nothing funny about it.
Either way, what is the worst final outcome? Sandblasting and repainting. "HATE" crime is no different than THOUGHT crime. The law is attempting to get inside your head. What if the swastika (originally a symbol of friendship, btw), was painted on that synagogue on a drunken dare? Is there a separate Drunken Stupid crime category? Why not?

Either tagging is VANDALISM and should be prosecuted as such. Your non-too-subtle assertion that it's only being opposed because GAYS were added to it is as reprehensible and ignorant as the law itself.
