Its unbelievable that a state that was a cornerstone of freedom has turned out to be so bigoted. But I guess I should expect this with so many followers of the Tea Party/GOP BS, they could do nothing else. They have changed the tourist logo from "Virginia is for Lovers" to "Virginia is for BIGOTS".

So what symbol did they replace their little red heart with?

A white hood perhaps?

Love to see that on their license plates!

Why is someone labeled a "bigot" if they support traditional marriage, but not a bigot if they oppose a nudist's "right" to jog naked in public?

So you want to infringe on my "right" to be naked in public? You're a bigot! Being naked is a God given right. We were brought into this world naked until society forced us all to conform to it's unfair clothing standards.

If being naked offends you, then stay clothed. If my nudity offends you, don't look. If I walk into a bakery buck naked to have a cake made and I get kicked out, I'll sue the owner for discrimination. I'll have parades with all of my naked friends, waving flags with phallic symbols on them, throwing my nudity in everybody's face. If the owner of a restaurant chain is of the opinion that being clothed is preferred to walking around naked, I'll storm the establishment with all of my naked supporters and demand a boycott of any organization that doesn't agree with my viewpoint.

Being naked in public is the new normal. Either get used to it, or join the rest of the haters in the stagnant, swirling backwater of bigotry.

What does your love of public nudity have to do with marriage law? Are you trying to say that anyone, gay or straight, who wants to marry or is married should also believe in public nudity?

That's a strange stance.

I'm sure it has cost you friends, and employment.

Who doesn't support "traditional marriage"? I don't know a single gay person who doesn't support straight folks having the right to legally marry.

The problem starts when some of those straight people want to deny that same right to gay people, for no rational reason, other than religion or animus..

Those just aren't good reasons to harm others.

Now, I have never seen marriage compared to nudity. How does that work? Are you saying that married gay people flaunt their happily married lives in the same way that you might flap your naked private parts in public?

Like I said - that's a strange notion.

And a bit creepy. I think you need a different and more logical comparison, since I suspect that straight married couples would feel the same way about your desire to be naked in public.

Why don't you use a DICTIONARY and find out. Why are bigots so often intellectually challenged?

He didn't succeed. And that "movement" you worry about is simply equal treatment under the law.

It's an American movement, and it's been going on a long time, and is certain to continue.

I will never understand the mindset that leads one to complain when others want for themselves and their families, the same things you demand and receive for you and yours.

You obviously misunderstood my statement.

You're a bigot if you oppose marriage for same-sex couples, and you're a bigot if you oppose people's right to be nude.

Let 'em swing dude.....

In my hometown it was decided decades ago that if men can show their nipples, equality dictates that females have the same freedom. Sadly, those that avail themselves of that freedom are those one frequently wishes hadn't.

Roflmao shows just how mentally ill you d!ck l!ckers really are. The incorrect spelling was intentional to see just how many of you freaks would catch it. No one did for a day and a half. I left it that way the whole weekend and ONLY 3 caught it. One only because the person posted it in front of him. Not take your mental illness and go get some help.

Why are you obsessed with oral sex? This topic is MARRIAGE, you know. You seem to be the only one fantasizing about men and sex, here.
