    If anything I find striking down DADT to be far less signficant than the Civil Rights Movement where an entire geographic section of the country was violently fighting to maintain segregation laws. The country didn't implode when racist and bigots like you were running their own states. It won't implode now.

    "backlash" will only single out the idiots this country has and make them easier to identify as part of the problem and not part of the solution

    I consider the men and women of our armed forces to be professionals. Are you suggesting that they're going to tweak out over this?

    To call bigots, bigots? Sure, why not. If you believe in restricting the benefits, rights, privileges of people simply because you disapprove of their 'lifestyle' then you are in fact a bigot.

    A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs. The predominant usage in modern American English refers to persons hostile to those of differing race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, various mental disorders, or religion.

    I happen to be black.

    Good job destroying your credibility with blind insults.

    Think what you will. You saw it at the polls before, and you'll see it again.

    I suspect different issues to arise over time as a result.

    I didn't say you were a racist. I said you were a bigot('bigots like you). Not a blind insult at all.

    So if you believe bestiality or incest to be wrong, then you're a bigot?

    Last I checked there are quite a few people out there that are living that lifestyle.

    Ooh I want to see how this turns out.

    Homosexuality is just the beginning.

    If you equate those things with homosexuality, then you're a bigot.

    I don't think it's wrong or right nor do I care about making laws stopping people from making consensual decisions in terms of sexuality.

    Last I checked there are quite a few people out there that are living that lifestyle.
    Sure. The difference between you and I is that you care about what they do. I don't really give a ****.

    Ooh I want to see how this turns out.

    Yes, yes. We know. Horses, brothers and sisters will fill the streets of Washington demanding that they be allowed to marry.
