The Gay Community: We've Had Enough Anti-Gay Bigotry

Bigots Bigotry and hate for gay marriage

There are anti-gay bigots trying to cloud the gay marriage debate, and their rhetoric terrorizes our nation, our community, and our families, and it’s a moral imperative to call them out on it.

A bigot has an unreasonable opinion not based on scientific data or facts, it's based on a bias or prejudice, that causes them to treat a person or group with hatred or contempt and intolerance, due to race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or language.

I can spot a bigot a mile away, and I’m sure that you can too.

“Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.”
Lord Byron

Are anti-gay Christians, politicians, religious leaders, and individuals bigots? Yes.

Whether we’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, we were born this way. Our sexuality is an immutable characteristic that cannot be changed. Our only choice is whether to live in the closet, or out of the closet.

Conversion therapy, reparative therapy, psychotherapy, religion, or prayer, cannot change our sexual orientation. Anti-gay rhetoric, bullying, and hate speech, won’t change our sexuality either. The mere suggestion that we should change, represents thee worse form of bigotry.

When someone says they don’t support gay marriage - are they a bigot? Yes. Are supporters of opposite-sex marriage bigots? If they don’t support same-sex marriage, yes they’re bigots too.

When a politician or religious figure says that they don’t support marriage equality because of their religious beliefs, regardless of their sincerity, those views are based on false doctrine. Gay marriage isn’t mentioned once in the Bible. In fact, Jesus never uttered a word about LGBT people in scripture, yet that’s not what pastors and priests and politicians want us to believe. Their anti-gay propaganda and political positions are based entirely on fiction.

We have to remember that there’s no biblical exemption for bearing false witness and telling untruths.

Even when they’re slandering queers.
