Merriam-Webster defines bigot as a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

People who don't like being called bigots should probably stop promoting intolerance and hatred towards others based on perceived membership in target groups.

Being told you're not worthy of basic human rights tends to make people a bit irritable towards those who actively promote hatred towards them.

What a typical, but stupid comment. You pew warming bigots are called bigots because you ARE bigots. And you get your bigotry from that con-artist at the front of your church.

What does the following mean? Ponder it for a few moments:

JESUS: Matt. 18:19-20,[GW] "I can guarantee again that if two of you agree on anything here on earth, my Father in heaven will accept it.

If two men, gay or straight, agree to have gay sex Jesus GUARENTEES that his father will accept it. Since good old BibleGod accepts gay sex why can't his pew warming followers?

Why do you keep posting links to yahoo? Yahoo refuses to inforce its rules and all the bigots flock there and leave their hate filled comments and then you can not respond to them.

Why not start a new thread here in topix? We can discuss things and debate here in topix where in Yahoo all you can do is read mean nasty messages, what fun is that?

Christians deserve to be "downed" because Christianity is an abomination, a crime against humanity. Anything that says homosexuality is wrong is not to be taken seriously. Christianity demands the death penality for homosexuality.

Christians are all about killing:

JESUS: Luke 19:27, "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me."

As a Christian and a gay man, I disagree.

What offends me is people like you acting like everyone who follows Christianity all believe the same things you do.

It sickens me when I see people like you use God to justify your terrible behavior to His Creations.

Ahh the old "special rights " whine. TELL ME WHAT RIGHTS I'M ASKING FOR THAT YOU'D BE DENIED? You folks are never able to give a realistic answer to that question.

Yet you don't have any problem giving religion "special rights". You're in favor of "religious exemptions" are you not? Or are you going to say you want churches to have their tax exempt status revoked?

So a gay man can marry another man in any state and have it legal in every State? When did that happen?

hidinbg your bigotry behind a thinly veiled guise of religious freedom does not absolve you of that transgression against society.

if your religious cult tells you that people of a different color are not equal to you (as many have in the past and still do..) you are still a racist if you follow that teaching. if your religious cult teaches bigotry and you follow it, you are a bigot.

I'm not saying I would be denied the special rights you're trying to get, I'm says they're equal right now. You are asking for something special that you want because you can't do it now. Nether can I do it either. If you're going after something, just say it like it really is.
Special Right? My sister can marry the man she loves. I cannot. Is that equal?

It's a special right when one group of people are given that right, like the right to legal marriage, when that same right is denied to others, like consenting unrelated adults who wish to marry but happen to be a same-sex couple.

No more special rights is correct. That's why it's important to recognize same-sex marriages as legal.

"stupid ass scriptures"? Lev. 24:16 "Whoever blaspheme the Name of The Lord, he shall surely put to death."

cussing too? Lev. 24:14 "Bring him that hate cursed...let all who heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him."

You are on THIN ice, Mister.
