1,200 crimes against churches in 2009

Every time a Muslim slaughters a bunch of people, such as in the Fort Hood massacre, we immediately hear dire warnings about an anti-Muslim backlash.

In 2008 there were 1,732 victims of anti-religious hate crimes. The vast majority of these were against Jews. Only 7.5, or 130 of these 1,732 victims were Muslims! Just to put things in perspective, in 2009 there were 1,200 crimes against churches in America.

Most of these crimes against churches, however, were not counted in the hate crimes statistics because hate crimes prosecution is very selectively applied. Shouldn't that fact make hate crimes legislation unconstitutional on the basis of the fourteenth amendment which requires equal protection under the law?
