It certainly seems to work well for the GOP.

Bigot-

1. A person obstinately and unreasonably wedded to a particular religious creed, opinion, or practice; a person blindly attached to an opinion, system, or party, and bitterly intolerant of those who believe differently.

2. Anyone who disagrees with special rights and entitlements for our politically-favored minority groups, i.e., a right-wing ideologue.



So many tiny minds here with their noses buried in a big book of fairy tales.........just sad.

Gosh what happened to Biblical times when marriage could mean: 1 man, several wives, a dozen concubines, your dead brother's wife and a few kidnapped virgins?

They don't care about gay animals. Satan caused them to be gay.

I came back to this post because I just cannot figure out what you mean by it. Are you saying that as a religious person, you're offended by gay people in general (thanks to some lines in the bible) or are you upset when some of us engage in debates with certain forum members who blindly quote scripture at us in the face of valid evidence and scientific reasoning that might go against such scripture?

You hit the mark on that one.

One value that made us great was making black people slaves. The beginning of America's downfall was when blacks were allowed to be free. What a stupid decision that was! And then to have the audacity to let them marry white people when 96% of America opposed it? What the heck was that about? Stupid activist judges denying the Will of the People.
