    Its kinda like people who hold prejudice against blacks. You have the right to whatever belief you want, but when you start saying that we can't drink out of your drinking fountains or use your restrooms or sit with you in a movie theater....then you become a bigot.

    Not at all. No one is forcing you to enter into a gay marriage or to even personally condone it. However, you have no right to deny privileges to another than you yourself enjoy...that is when you cross the line into bigotry.

    Its exactly like inter-racial marriage. People who were against it claimed that people were "forcing their values and beliefs on them". In reality....no....not really. They were simply free to continue to not believe in inter-racial marriage, they just weren't allowed to force their bigoted opinions on other people.

    Depends. If the man is a bible thumper that thinks homosexuals are going to hell, and deservedly so, then he's a homophobe. If he wants to actively discriminate against gays, or pass laws against them, then he is even worse.

    Of course I understand why you are eliminating context from your question, and it is not to promote a thorough, reasoned discussion.

    Exactly. That's what I just said.

    Now, not that they are at all accurate in their epithetic denigration of you for that particular reason, as by appeal to definition, marriage, meaning "between a man and a woman as husband and wife", refutes bigotry as a reason for opposition to "gay marriage", as the term "gay marriage" is an oxymoron, inapplicable by appeal to definition.

    So, on that basis, false accusations of bigotry against you are .. well, simply that: false.

    Thus maybe there is another reason they're calling you a bigot .. I don't know, really.
    are you ever honest in any of your post?

    please give us factual proof of the lie that gay marriage is an oxymoron LMAO

    wrong again Im asking you to prove your false statement?

    I love the false idea that you think asking one to back up their claim is trolling

    so please do so now or it will continue to be labeled as the lie that it is
