Beer Label A Hate Crime?

From IndiaWest:  " A San Francisco Bay Area lawyer, offended by a beer label that caricatures the Hindu god, Lord Ganesha, is considering taking legal action against a Northern California brewery, even though the general manager has indicated that the beer in question will be removed from the market.  For approximately five years, the Lost Coast Brewery in Eureka has, along with seven other beers, bottled and distributed an "Indica" brand, an Indian Pale Ale with a label that features a cartoon drawing of Ganesha using his trunk to drink the beverage."  The attorney apparently argues that the label constitutes a hate crime.  [Mark Godsey]
