    Yes that's true, but could they *possibly* have other motives, like safety or insurance costs?

    Laws against gay rights, in contrast, are just born from hatred and a desire to oppress. If i'm going to apply the term 'bigotry' in a way that doesn't dilute its significance when it really should be used, i'm not referring to a seat-belt law as bigotry

    That is sensible. I understand what you were meaning now. Thank you for taking the time to explain.

    Absolutely not. Bigots are bigots, and some bigots use religion (e.g. by cherry-picking scripture, emphasizing some sins over others) to further their bigotry. I mean, since gluttony is a sin, conservative Christians should never serve fat people.

    The fact that the laws can and probably will change in our judiciary system in regard of public opinion is the opposite of bigotry....

    Show me a human being that bolded part does not describe.

    You can only be saved through Christ is a bigotted statement. I don't know any Christian who would sway from that line of thinking and still call them self a Christian. If they do, their congregation would more than likely disagree with them.

    People who realize they themselves may be wrong for their convictions.

    Why do some people always resort to that? "So do Muslims and Jews." No kidding. Did I say otherwise?
