    Yes, I think the stance against gay marriage stems from a tradition of bigotry. I don't mean that as a personal attack on those who oppose it, but I think they're misguided. However, there's no denying that the defense of "traditional marriage" is an exclusionary political stance targeting a small subset of the population.

    I would like to vote on the option of MAYBE.

    It might. The world is so rarely black and white to say that some one is x because of y reason.

    Nope, it depends on his actions or if he is vocal about hating homosexuals for some reason.

    If that were the actual extent of people's beliefs who say such things and they do not actively persecute gay people, I'd say "not necessarily. Since that is so seldom the extent of the actual views being expressed, nor the zeal with which they are pursued, however, such a poll as this is merely an attempt to frame the actual views in question in such a way as to represent the least objectionable views as being the true barometer rather than the full extent of the views. It's just a copout offered in hopes of fooling people.

    So because a person has a difference of opinion with you on marriage that automatically makes them a bbigot or a homophobe? Under your definition that would make about 75% of the people in the USA bigots or homophobes.....and you call us the intolerant ones...........what a joke.

    How about stating your opinion on the issue?

    Not a joke -- a grim reality. The general direction of society is away from such anti-gay attitudes, but we're really talking about a cultural shift playing out over generations, not a momentary political battle. But, in short, yes, excluding homosexuals from political activity is clear bigotry on a wide scale.
