    You?
    You have trouble understanding direct answers? Allow me to repeat with highlights:

    Don't know of any rule book (Translation: no such rule), and you're free to be as huge an asshole as you want to be (No rule against it.). But you asked if it was wrong, and not what rules or laws were. If you're being intolerant of something that is none of your business, that isn't harmful to others, and breaks no laws, well, you can't call that equal to something that does one or more of those things.
    Now, if it still isn't clear to you. You asked for my OPINION and I gave you my OPINION.

    Now, if you say it is fine to be intolerant of anyone, would it be acceptable for me to say who says so? I know it is you who is saying so, as I know there is no rule book. Now, stop the silliness and try making a case yourself.

    indeed, intolerance of bigotry, hatred, and criminal acts is more than appropriate.

    The message that's being conveyed, is that a political position is necessarily wrong if it's intolerant.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    My main message is that I don't think it is inherintly wrong to be intolerant of SSM. There are those who scream that's it's evil and intolerant to differ on the matter of SSM.

    The question arises because people have a tendency to connote intolerance with something negative.

    Irrational intolerance is wrong, just as limiting the ability of another group of people do so something for irrational reasons is always wrong. The problem is not the intolerance, it is that it is for irrational reasons.

    I can't recall any logical nor rational reasons to oppose SSM, being offered anywhere in this forum. Its all about religion, or some nonesense about society falling apart.

    The problem for me is not what I consider your intolerance, but that some wish to impose their intolerence on others. Some things make sense to do so, like murder and pedophila. Others not so much, like SSM and racial bigotry. No one will force you to marry someone of the same sex, or accept it in your household. But to push that intolerance outside yourself? Well, I don't believe you have the right to do that.

    not only that, but some folks want to even turn their bigotry & intolerance into law.

    that..is very troubling.
