    I've quoted the Scotus decision which explains it. If you're having trouble understanding it, try moving your lips while you read it

    While it is true that the law
    applies only to conduct, the conduct targeted by this law is
    conduct that is closely correlated with being homosexual.
    Under such circumstances, [the] law is targeted at more
    than conduct. It is instead directed toward gay persons as
    a class.”); cf. Bray v. Alexandria Women’s Health Clinic,
    506 U. S. 263, 270 (1993)
    No, murder laws explicitly define murders. Not legal killings.
    Wrong. Murder laws explicitly defines legal defenses. Take Stand Your Ground laws, for example.

    Solved, no problem, no need to apoligize but I appreciate the apology anyway.

    Our liberal friends confuse rights with privileges and they confuse freedom with security.

    Marriage has been determined as a right no less than 14 times by the SCOTUS. And yanno the Federal Marriage Amendment supported by various right wing extremist really doesn't have a hope in hell of passing with the current state of culture and the populace.

    Are you trying to compare bigotry and oppression towards gay people to bigotry and oppression to rapists?

    I asked a very simple direct and honest question. It deserves a very simple direct an honest answer. Notice I didnt use any words ending in 'ist'. My question is regard to the disregard of sin...not to the equivalency of 'sinners'.

    Care to answer the question or are you just another one of 'those' guys?

    If one doesn't approve of raping are they a bigot? Under this definition they technically are:

    : a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc. : a bigoted person; especially : a person who hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group (such as a racial or religious group)

    Disliking a rapist is dilsliking another person/group (rapists) so I guess but that is pretty stupid. In reality the term is reserved for the latter part so no, they would not be bigots.
