No One Wants to Be Called a Bigot

Written by scott on August 12th, 2013

USA: NOM's Gallagher Thinks Supreme Court Will Strike Down DOMA, Uphold Prop 8“I’m not a bigot,” many people are saying these days, as the same-sex marriage debate reverberates nationwide. “Please don’t label me like that. I just don’t want others changing the nature of my marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Call the gay connection something else, but don’t meddle with the most important role in my life.”

Can we take this sentiment at face value? Can a person truly make this statement without there being any homophobia below the surface?

Advocates of same-sex marriage respond by saying: Isn’t marriage all about love and commitment between two people? Isn’t the desire to achieve personal and public recognition for their commitment actually enhancing the institution, not degrading it?

    Maggie Gallagher is a bigot, a homophobe and is prejudiced by her religion. Take religion out of the equation and she wouldn’t have any excuse. Religious bigots are the worst dividers of humanity across time, class,race, and nationality.

    How exactly does my marriage or anyone else being married have anything to do with your marriage? It simply does not! I served my country during combat and it makes my skin crawl to hear anyone with total freedom deny the same freedom they have to another American. Perhaps it is you who is meddling with others people’s lives. Mind your own marriage and stay our of the marriage of others. Bigot!
