Bigot is a word unintelligent people use to describe people with views they cannot refute.

The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior, so those who oppose on a Christian basis are not 'bigots,' they are adherents of the largest religious group in the Western World.

There is actually no logical defense of the concocted oxymoron of homosexual 'marriage.' Homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live!

No significant percent of the homosexual population has 'married' in ANY country that allows it, and studies have shown that few such 'marriages' are even exclusive relationships.

The homosexual 'marriage' movement is a hate based political charade attacking what others hold sacred.

No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No economically or physically unequal genders are involve. No child is ever born as a direct result, and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Having both is one of the most accurate statistical predictions of a child's future success in life.

Homosexual themselves overwhelmingly reject 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

So, you don't have to be a Christian or a bigot to oppose the nonsense of homosexual 'marriage!'

He could term them "people who hate in the plural"; or "those with a low tolerance for the inevitable differences all human beings share"; but it all adds to the same sorry phenomenon and BIGOT describes it perfectly.

We don't live in Theocracies - the church doesn't run our government so what the Bible or the Torah or the Qu'ran say don't matter. So please save the religious diatribe.

As for some of your other comments. Heterosexuals reject marriage and an actual practice in many countries around the world please research world cohabitation and divorce rates.

The logical defense is that heterosexual marriage grant benefits automatically denied to committed gay couples simple by virtue of their inability to get married legally.

Those who oppose fixing that inequity do so not because they don't believe the benefits aren't valid but because they believe gay folks are undeserving and should specifically be denied those benefits. That's bigotry no matter how you slice it.
