    What is an “intrareligious” dispute? If a Protestant does something to a Catholic; a Jew to a Jew for Jesus; a Muslim to a member of the Nation of Islam? Government can’t get involved in deciding what’s one religion against another. That’s why hate crime statutes are written broadly to include cases like this: if the crime is committed due to a perception about the victim’s religious beliefs, for example.
