    It looks to me like now the gays are the bigots.

    Take me for instance.  Now we all have our rights to our beliefs, but not necessarily to what we do.  We can believe whatever we want, but we don't have the right to kill someone because we do not like the color of their tie.  I do not believe in people's 'right' to gay marriage and hold to the biblical view that homosexuality is a sin (just as unmarried sex between a man and a woman is a sin).  I have a right to that view.  You don't have to like it, either.  But that is my right.  You have the right to believe the opposite, and that doesn't make me hate you at all.  I just don't believe in that stuff.  But it is the gays who are intolerant against people who feel like I do, they don't want to tolerate the fact that some people simply don't agree with them.  So that makes those gays the bigots, not people like me.   I never said that they don't have the 'right to feel that way or hold that view.'  

    And because I simply believe that it is a sin does not make me a 'homophobe' or a 'hater' or a 'bigot' or any other false dichotomy (either/or) label that they want to put on that box.  I don't hate anyone, I am not afraid of anyone, and I am not prejudice.  I just have traditional beliefs.  I don't believe in abortion either.  But I am not 'abortophobic', I don't go around 'hating' on those who live together before marriage, and I don't go around hating anyone.  I love people but just not sin.

    So why is it that it is simply those who hold my view that people can't tolerate?!?  But everything else is okay?  But doesn't that contradict the definition of 'tolerance'?!?  That is so narrowminded!  Only if people agree with gays, then they are 'okay'?  Wow!  How bigoted!  What hatred!!!   I am going to coin a new label for that, called 'Beliefophobes' or 'straightophobes' or even 'traditionalconservaphobes'... or even better.... 'homo-phobe-ophobes'!!!   Ha!  Now how do you like it?
    And I'm gonna fly my belief flags high and proud too, regardless of who doesn't like it!
