  • even in europe people know what the 4th of July is...
    on that note - I the last in the present series of American Wife Swap the other night - it was pretty shocking that such bigots are considered normal and the scary thing is that those bigots are pretty much in power.

      What's scary is that you think bigots are considered normal, let alone in power, in America.

      You really lack perspective, I think.
      • Bigots are in power and normal, thats why gay marriage was such a big issue in the election and why various sexual practices remain illegal in some US States.

        Bush won the popular vote based on the exact same agenda I saw from the republicans on that program.

        If such bigotry was rare, then their would be equal rights for gay couples, and segregation would have ended in the first half of the 20th century rather than the 2nd.

          Right, like I said, you lack perspective. You simply do not have the ability to understand points of view other than your own. The fact is that the overwhelming majority of people I know, in Massachusetts, Washington, California, and elsewhere, who oppose gay marriage do so for reasons unrelated to bigotry. Here's a tip for your future screeds: beli
          • ....right.

            Applying the duck test - if it looks, sounds and feels like bigotry, it's bigotry.

            no different to those who thought mixed race schools or mixed race marriage was immoral.

            • So, you look, sound, and feel entirely ignorant to me. Therefore, you are.
              • You've nicely ducked the issue of how either :

                being against equal gay rights is somehow different to equal racial rights..

                or that neither are biggotted and just a question of subjective morality.

                  I ducked nothing. You provided no argument. Broadly comparing two things and saying one is evil and so therefore the other is, is not an argument that can be rationally responded to.

                  being against equal gay rights is somehow different to equal racial rights..

                  You weren't talking about equal gay rights, you were talking about gay marriage rights. If you actually understood the issues involved, you would know that the part of the very question *is* whether denial o
