Homophobic crimes to be punished more harshly

Whilst I, in general, support what is going to be included in the forthcoming Sentencing (Scotland) Bill to be presented before the Scottish Parliament (the 'of course' seems superfluous, coming from me), the worries raised by solicitors (see end of linked article) need to be thought through carefully by people better qualified than me to understand the precise scope of these worries. As for the worries raised by the Catholic Church, then it is very simple - I couldn't give a proverbial monkeys!!
