    Yes. Those who misunderstand the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution are not bigots. They are protected from being so characterized by their ignorance.

    Are you saying that there are no bigots and homophobes among the people who are against gay marriage?

    Actually that isn't what he said. As per usual, Navy Pride made broad generalizations. Though it is true, many people on the left do characterize gay marriage opponents as bigots and homophobes. Sometimes they are correct, sometimes they aren't. Like both sides of the political spectrum, they make broad generalizations about the side that they don't agree with in an effort to further their own agenda..just as Navy Pride did.

    I have heard people like you call anyone who disagrees with them on the gay marriage issue bigots...............I myself have been called that many times in this forum.......Even gay people I know agree that I am no bigot..........

    Lol! Wait a minute...you mean you've actually ASKED a gay person that you know if you are a bigot? Or they've told you that they think you are not just out of the blue, despite your views on marriage equality and other gay-related issues?

    Inquiring minds...
