4. I believe that you made a valid observation, dbackjon.
If I did not support the civil right of African Americans to get married on the basis of the color of their skin, then I would be engaging in discrimination, and therefore, could be considered a bigot.
The same could be said about a person who does not support same sex marriage on the basis of someone's love/sexual preference partner.
It's not rocket science.
