Are those who oppose marriage equality "bigots?"

Blankenhorn asked this question a bit more delicately on Sunday. The short answer is "no." National Organization for Marriage frequently floats the theme that they suffer charges of bigotry from homosexual activists when all they are doing is "defending marriage."

It's not the point of view that is offensive so much as the way that it is fostered. I consider the following just some of the things that depict bigotry.
  • Insisting that sexual orientation is mutable and choice.
  • Suggesting that gay people present a threat to children or appealing to stereotype.
  • Attempting to impose your religious beliefs on everyone else.
  • Knowingly making false statements about LGBT people to advance a political agenda.
  • Manufacturing victims of supposed gay "intolerance" who are really victimizers.
