Actually the argument of redefinition is covered in the post. And the argument of redefinition in the silliest and most transparent argument of them all.
And the word bigot to describe these people is perfectly apt. Bigotry is the intolerance of a person based on race/sex/religion/sexual orientation. These people simply do not like homosexuals on judge on their sexual orientation over all other personal characteristics.
What bothers me is the reluctance of people do slam people for such opinions. I can walk down the streets and see a gay person and call them a faggot. I might get a few stares off people but not much would happen. Could I walk down the street and racially abuse somebody and get away with it, not likely, and this is the way it should be. Society tolerates homophobia and you post below is typical of this tolerance.
Firstly, the difference in the prevalence of inter-racial/same-sex marriage has no bearing on the arguments made against them or whether those arguments are analogous or not, only the content of the arguments can construe that.
Secondly same-sex marriage were not commonplace but they did exist in several different societies. Homosexuality, however, was ever present and widespread. The only reason same-sex marriages were not popular is due to the nature of marriage at the time. Marriage was all about continuing family line and forming political allegiances. However they still did happen, so much so that same-sex marriages were made illegal in 342AD.
Fascinating. Also, when Judge Leon M. Bazile mentioned "God's" intentions, that automatically rendered the anti-miscengation ban unconstitutional on the grounds of both the establishment clause and the free exercise clause of the First Amendment.
