    Is the only way to discriminate against a person to stop them from marrying?

    Chick Fil A is just one example of many. People walk around expecting that everyone be tolerant of their beliefs, and everyone be tolerant of their lifestyles, and then turn around and discriminate and mock others for their beliefs and lifestyles.

    These same people that are ok with mayors not letting chick fil a's be built, and henson refusing to do busines with a group based on their religious beliefs would be up in arms if a business run by a gay man were discriminated against for his. It is hypocritical to demand tolerance while not being so yourself.

    There is a wedge driven between groups in this country. For the sake of this discussion we will use gays and religious extremists. Gay marriage supporters absolutely hate when a religious nut pushes their beliefs down their throats. Yet they go around expecting shoving their beliefs down the throats of the religious extremists. The gay rights demand an end to discrimination while at the same time disriminating against the religious. It is disgusting and both sides, or the majority of people on both sides are doing nothing but furthering the gap in these groups and pushing us toward segragation.

    I've never met a truly tolerant person in my entire life. That, to me, would make the word a wholly rhetorical one.

    And you can go right on doing that. And I'll continue to think your argument is rather hollow when you're complaining about people being inconsistent because in their opinion their inconsistency is justified.

    Tell me. Does your stance against bigotry extend to the government being allowed to circumvent the law to defacto violate the 1st amendment when bigots like Westboro speak, or is it only the 14th amendment that you have no problem with the government circumventing? Or do you pick and choose when bigotry warrants an end around for the government?

    Now, there's no problem with being inconsistent strictly based on ones opinion of whether something is right or wrong....which is really what you're doing comes down to. A lot of people, actually I dare say most people probably myself included at some points, probably try to clarify why things are "DIFFERENT" in situations where we're being inconsistent. However, the issue here is that you're trying to belittle someone's argument for "damning" one thing and giving another a pass on a topic that you yourself are doing that same very thing.

    It's one thing to be inconsistent on an issue occasoinally but point out someones inconsistency on a totally unrelated issue. You're inconsistent due to your opinion on a related issue and yet you're wanting to try to counter someone's point by suggesting they're inconsistent in action.

    If Chik-Fil-A refuses to serve gays, that's a problem for me. Standing up for marriage as one man/one woman is not.
