I honestly don't believe Arclight is a bigot in the traditional sense. I'm confident that he wouldn't treat someone who is gay badly. Unfortunately, the religion he chooses to follow is letting him down by not being as good as he is.
As a Christian, I do not condone the gay life style. That does not make me a bigot nor does that make Arclight.
Actually, it does. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but by definition you are. We all have our bigotries and prejudices, this just happens to be one of yours. It's fine. But don't say you aren't bigoted towards gays just because you don't like the word bigot or because it's what your church told you. It is what it is. I mean I'm bigoted towards the poors and in some cases religious people. We all have our prejudices. Find me a poor religious person and I will show you someone I am predetermined not to like
For reference in case it was necessary:
Condone: to regard or treat (something bad or blameworthy) as acceptable, forgivable, or harmless <a government accused of condoning racism> <condone corruption in politics>
Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
As an American, though, I feel there is no way to restrict gay's right to marry. This will all be moot by the end of the summer when SCOTUS rules that way as well.
Less than 50 years ago, many white churches wouldn't even allow black worshipers to enter their building. At the time, they used similar arguments as to why blacks couldn't worship with whites. While there is still a racial divide in congregations, most (if not all) faiths have acknowledged they were wrong to exclude people based on their skin color.
I'm betting that 50 years from now, someone will be writing something similar about some Christian group's treatment of gays.
The problem with this argument is that racism is not supported in the Bible, but being against what God deems as immoral is. I understand why you make that argument as the precedent was set with 'Christians' acting unbibically so it is easier to cast stones now that they're trying to act bibically.
People tend to get a bit confused between racism and slavery, in that the bible was totally cool with one of those things.
The fundamental issue is that many people have been using religion/spiritualism (not just Christianity) as their justification for doing all sorts of bad things since the beginning of time. From the crusades to slavery to segregation to jihad to this and all manner of other things, it's just a part of our history as human beings. It's a crutch we use when normal logic is against us.
