    most religious people are not bigots because it takes more than feelings to be intolerant it typically takes ACTIONS or complete judgement where one views others as lessers

    for example a person who THINKS and FEELS equal rights for gays is wrong is not a bigot based on that alone. But a person that tries to STOP a fellow american from having equal rights because they see that person as a lesser and not deserving of equal rights then they are now a bigot. Its the action, not the feeling.

    I read through here and some of it makes me sad but i still agree with what i said and it hasn't changed and i like maquiscat's post also. Dont know if i fully agree with all of it but the last two sentences are spot on.

    No. There are lots of religious people who are not bigots, and if this is about SSM, there are churches that are very gay friendly. I have a cousin who goes to an Anglican church that is very welcoming toward homosexuals, it has a Pride Committee, flies the rainbow flag at times etc. Another Anglican church in the diocese I grew up in (same diocese) took part in Toronto's gay pride parade last month.

    Some things they do however share in common. Most oppose homosexuality, and almost all insist they are the one true faith.

    Correct. They can't all be right but that doesn't mean they're all wrong either.

    ....this is also untrue. I think you are thinking of "sects of Christianity" or "Abrahamic Religions" instead of "religions".
