Then they should STOP BEING BIGOTS!

If you don't like being called a homophobe, then STOP BEING ONE.

If you don't like being called a racist, then STOP BEING ONE.

If you don't like being called an idiot, then STOP BEING ONE.

People who don't want to be labelled bigots should avoid doing or saying bigoted things.

Pretty simple!

FTA: "Ryan Anderson, 31, a fellow at conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation, contends:“In redefining marriage to include a same-sex couple, what you’re doing is excluding the norm of sexual complementarity. Once you exclude that norm, the three other norms—which are monogamy, sexual exclusivity, and permanency—become optional as well.”

Um, excuse me Mr. Anderson, but what is the track record on heterosexual couples who get married these days? Isn't it something like a 50% failure rate at living up to the standards you state?

Also FTA:“These Republicans who are jumping ship are doing so because we have no way of messaging,”

It's not the "way of messaging". It's the message itself that people are running from.
