Don't Even Think About Dissing G_d

Scotland Yard is considering charging the UK's Gay Police Association with a "faith crime" (PDF of English faith crime law), in the wake of complaints regarding their ad (below) placed in The Independent's special Euro-Pride diversity section.The Gay Police Association has issued a lengthy defense of their ad. This is a good example of the slippery slope (groan) that is tread upon when government criminalizes thought, as we do in this country with hate crimes legislation. Is "faith crime" legislation coming for the United States? I wouldn't be surprised.
