Thought of the day

I’m almost certain I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: In the same-sex marriage debate, it is often put forth that denying gays the right to marry is like when the majority was in the business of denying the right to interracial marriage. If that is true (and it is – it’s uncanny how much alike the arguments are), then we ought to find ourselves willing to commit to the terminology (or to like terminology) we would apply to anyone still against interracial marriage today. The most apt term is “bigot”. Let’s not shy from utilizing it.

  1. Of course it is bigotry. There are no legitimate reasons for denying same-sex marriage, only religious based ones. It is equivalent to the call in the bible to own slaves.
