If someone today argued for laws to legally bar interracial marriage that person would universally be labeled a bigot.
But in 1967 when the U.S. Supreme Court in Loving v. Virginia struck down state laws prohibiting interracial marriage, 73% of Americans still supported them. Did that mean that more than 70% of Americans at that time were bigots? No. But there certainly came a time that you were one if you continued advocating for such discriminatory laws.

No, but you are a pervert if you condone it!
So I’m a bigot. Big deal.
I’m already a racist because I don’t agree with Barry’s ... ideas.
Why not add bigot to it, too.
Add another word to my..what i am list by the left. I also hate sunshine, unicorns and rainbows...and damm happy about it!!!!
My wife is not my race...but I did draw the line at her having a penis.
If you own a business that provides goods or services to a couple that is getting married, or is married, then you will have to treat same-sex couples the same way or risk being sued or found in violation of state and/or federal law with the consequent penalties.
If your child is taught in sex education class that same-sex relationships are no different than heterosexual ones, and you complain then you will either be ignored or investigated for child abuse.
If you home school your children and fail to teach them that same-sex relationships are no different than heterosexual ones you might be accused of child abuse and have your children taken from you to be "properly" trained in public schools.
The word 'bigot' just don't enter into it.
The term “Christian Democrat” is a oxymoron
Anybody that supports homosexual anything, does NOT have the Spirit of Christ within them either
Same deal for abortion period
Bigot. Racist. Whatever. I am fine with it.
Yes, and 20 years from now you’ll be a bigot if you don’t condone pedophilia.
I heard something about this on the radio that just ticked me off. According to the moron who was talking, EVERYONE, who is a “nice person” should “support” homosexual marriage. WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN? “Support” it how? Send them all a “wedding” present? “Support” what? What a crock. The homosexuals can “support” me by staying out of my face with their sexual deviant agenda. I could care less if the “majority” of the morons living in this country think sexual deviancy is cute and cool according to some “latest poll”.
I don’t even know what bigot means.
Are you a misogynist jackoff if you equate a rectum with a uterus?
If I am a bigot for opposing it, they are perverts for approving of it. I’d rather be a bigot in the eyes of man than a pervert in the eyes of God.
The whole idea that journalists know words mean things is over.
“Bigotry” is by definition based on irrational views of some particular group/demographic. It’s clear they don’t know what the word means, or are using it incorrectly on purpose, and/or operating with the view that there is no rational reasons to oppose anything about homosexuality.
There are plenty of rational reasons to oppose homosexuality, and certainly many more for opposing militant activist homosexuality.
Don't forget, you're probably also a terrorist, too.
They are badges of honor in this bizarre world we find our selves living in these days. I wear mine with honor.
There is no such thing as “same sex marriage”.
The question is not valid.
Wow. What a resume for a Gramma, huh?
Racist, bigot and terrorist. Wow.
If you’re against Bloomberg’s gun restrictions, you are also anti semitic.
Straw-man argument. God did not say, “White-skin folk shalt not marry Brown-skin folk.” That was a fake construct of American racism (by politicians for whom more than a few were having their own white-on-brown affairs on the side). He was thoroughly clear on His position on homosexuality.
That’s a good line to have.
Anti-semetic. (that’s not spelled right...)
I’m so proud of myself.
Behavior is not ancestry.
Homosexuality, transvestism, lesbianism are all behaviors, and sick o es at that.
If it makes me a bigot, so be it.
I’m proud of you too. :)
The left has won the war by defining the terms. People are so afraid of being called names ( perhaps this persists from childhood trauma) that they will agree to anything. Bigot, homophobe, fascist, right wing extremist they all mean the same thing.
I would argue from a semantics perspective that according to merriam a bigot especially refers to someone who is hateful in their prejudice. From my point of view discouraging gay sex ( marriage or no) is actually a loving stance as opposed to a hateful one. Gay men and women face health problems, depression and a shortened life span. If we really disliked these people wouldn’t we be encouraging sodomy and lesbianism?
Call me a stickler...I’m a bit particular about the equipment.
You make a grave mistake when you joke about this. The people in the gay mafia are the bigots and bullies. They attack religion and specifically the Christian religion all the time and the mainstream media sits by and smiles. If we don’t turn the table and show them for the bigots and bullies that they are we will lose, not because of them. We will lose because we didn’t have the courage to tell the truth. I don’t care what the Supreme Court says. A gay man could never have replaced my mother. I have just begun to fight.
I believe that marriage is
not just a bond but a sacred bond
between a man and a woman. I have had occasion in my life to defend marriage. To stand up for marriage. To believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or the fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and a woman going back into the midst of history, as one of the founding foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principle role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults."
No. Will you be CALLED one? Fer sure!
First thing is you don’t let the left set the language of debate:
There is no such thing as “gay marriage” - just because they choose to call it “marriage” doesn’t mean it is.
Sexual relations between members of the same sex is wrong. Period. Giving them a “marriage” license doesn’t make it less wrong.
I’m never going to accept two dudes living together and playing in their own poop as anything remotely constituting the grand, thousands-year-old institution of marriage... the cornerstone of civilization.
Any government or individual that argues otherwise will never get my allegiance or my respect.
Are you an anti-Christian and anti-Semitic bigot if you think opponents of gay “marriage” are wrong when they cite Scripture?
So Im a bigot. Big deal
We're already in (or quite near) the middle of the 'tribulation' so Mr. Obeidallah will soon find out that he's among the world's losers in this little tussle.
Stay on-topic; that being Barack Hussein Obama and his whole administration is trying to set up a socialist/communist dictatorship, destroy the Constitution, and bring this country down into a cesspool of debt and moral depravity. Anything else is just noise and a diversion. - (Why are they arming themselves to the hilt?)
You are absolutely correct. Nobody ever argued against inter-racial marriage on the grounds of marriage’s definition, because its definition never made any mention of race, stretching all the way back to the Bible. The arguments that were used were based on racial purity and supremacy. This is fundamentally different.
You cannot alter the definition of marriage because its not a human concept. It’s a concept from beyond this world, given to us by our creator, and its the same whichever religion you are talking about, and let me say this...
Other religions outside of so-called ‘Christian’ society will never accept it. The Muslims sure as hell won’t recognize it. Hinduism - “Premarital and extramarital sex are wrong, and because homosexuals CANNOT MARRY, they should not engage in sexual relationships.”
We could even mention the Amish community. Are they ‘bigots’? What an outrageous assertion. According to these people, the majority of individuals on this earth are bigots, and bigotry is some sort of transient concept that changes which indicates if pedophilia became acceptable in our society (and that’s not ridiculous because it has become acceptable in a few societies), those against it would be the new bigots.
The word ‘bigot’ is becoming the new ‘racist’. A word thrown around so often, its lost all meaning anyway. Essentially, anyone who disagrees with me is a bigot.
Bigotry is a very, very tall-a oak that-a grows in Naples.
If so, then I’m a bigot.
Marrage is for the children.
So—call it SOMETHING ELSE.
As for the “bigot” BS—go f#ck yo#rself.
On my local urban forum, our “ugliest” thread is on this subject. Yours truly is basically the only one fighting the good fight...
