54. If they are against people having equal rights, then that is wrong.
Edited on Sat Jul-05-08 06:19 PM by DarkTirade
I don't think there's anything in this world that's black or white... but that one's a pretty close shade.

If they are against state-sanctioned marriage as a whole, that's one thing. But if they say, "I don't think gays should be doing this." and therefore I'm against gays having the right to marry, then that's bigotry. They are in favor of curtailing someone's rights because that someone has the audacity to want to do something that they don't agree with. And that is no different than any other form of bigotry.

And they need to be called on it when it happens.

*edit* Also, you have to remember that people can claim to be anyone on the internet... so there are always trolls saying, "I'm gay, but..." :P
