    I guess in your mind then Jesus Christ/God are homophobes.

    Re: If a man states I favor tradiional marriage does that make him a bigot or a homop

    I voted "No." Reason being, if he says "I favor traditional marriage," I don't entirely know what he means. Does he mean for himself personally? Does he mean in terms of the law? What the hell is a traditional marriage, anyway? Is it "one man, one woman," or is it more extreme, like "dominant husband, submissive wife?"

    I don't really know what that statement means, when presented by itself.

    If he favors "traditional marriage" for himself and leave it at that, then no, he is not a bigot.

    If he believes his personal take on romance should be the law for everyone in the country, I would say that at best he has a crappy concept of what freedom and equality mean, and at worst he may be a bigot.

    The poll and this thread is not about whether gays should be allowed to marry. The question of the poll is: Re: If a man states I favor tradiional marriage does that make him a bigot or a homope?

    With all due respect I believe the question is pretty clear............It means any person be it man or woman.

    Re: If a man states I favor tradiional marriage does that make him a bigot or a homop

    the OP question is irrelevant. because of the equal protection clause, if heterosexuals can have a legal marriage, then homosexuals are guaranteed the same right. someone has the right to find that distasteful, but he or she doesn't have the right to deny rights to others. not to mention the fact that "traditional" marriage can be defined in a variety of ways.

    in 50 years, we'll probably look back on this period as we now look back on the debates about interracial marriage.

    Well, the word of God itself describes him as both condoning and personally carrying out the killing of quite a few homosexuals, so that's a rather safe assumption.

    Did that happen? Any other non-fact you want to bring up?
