    You just answered your own question. A policy disagreement over tax rates or drug laws doesn't inherently violate anyone's rights...opposing same-sex marriage does.

    I can't. This is important.

In a free country people are going to say all sorts of things, ain't no point getting all bent out of shape over every damned thing that is said that you don't agree with.
    To normal people this is a non-issue.To a rabid leftist it is a pretty big deal when someone supports traditional marriage.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    If you go back and check you would find them...I've said several times that Obama's views were just as bigoted as the next guy. I'm glad that Obama has accepted that he was wrong.

    Lets go over this again since you still haven't gotten the issue with this..

    Marriage is a right

    A marriage contract by the use of government is not a right

    Excluding people from the contract is a violation of the fourteenth amendment.

    Just because it violates the fourteenth amendment does not change it from a government service to a right. It is still a government service.

    As for the water fountain example, if it is a private water fountain is it not a right for anyone to use it and if it is public one it is still not a right for anyone to use it, but the government can't exclude anyone from doing so.

    What exactly is "traditional marriage"?

Free speech does not include the right to be free of the consequences of your statements.
    Tell me you are not making the argument that by practicing your rights and harming no one the government is justified in punishing its citizens and stripping them of their rights.

    Bigotry is not that big a deal. He can be a bigot. He is free to say whatever bigotted thing he wants. And others are free to say what they want in repsonse. Freedom.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    so anyone who goes to Chick Fil A is a gay basher...

    Seriously, keep it up guys. This kind of rhetoric marginalizes you more than anything your opponents could say.

    No, if you went there because you wanted a chicken sandwich, that's fine. If you went out of your way to specifically go there today because you knew about "Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day," then yes, you're most likely a homophobic bigot.
