I noticed that most of the answers on the other post state that we should not (and cannot) legislate morality. So what about legislating emotions? I'm thinking of "hate crimes" in particular. Can we legislate emotion and force people not to hate?
idk, I read what Jenny wrote and what she says is true. I've never thought about this issue before.

Well, a hate crime is an act against someone else, it is a reaction to an emotion, keeping people from committing a hate crime isn't telling them not to have that emotion, just to express it in a non violent way that doesn't hurt anyone else. The people who hold up signs that say "God hates f*gs" aren't "hurting" anyone, they are free to express their hate and have those hateful emotions as long as they don't commit a crime and/or hurt someone as a result of those hateful views they have.
