You're a bigot. But enter one twitter user who simply refers to himself as Mike. See he had a problem with being called a bigot (which he is) after he made the statement that he is opposed to same sex marriage in the public forum which is Twitter. He pulled up the most simplistic definition of the word and doubled down on the fact he's not a bigot. Learned definitions seem to disagree however. Note how it says "unreasonable beliefs" there. Keep that in mind because it's going to be a recurring theme for this discussion.
I admit, yes, I am dismissive of his type as he mentions but there's a very good reason for this. Enough people have been hurt. Any time you state that X humans don't get to do what the other humans are doing when it has absolutely no bearing on your freedoms, that's the end of the discussion. You're no longer thinking or operating on rationale, reason or morality. I've been through enough conversations to know that pointing out your galactically stupid position and putting you in your place is the best course of action in order to save time and one's sanity because you need those 3 key components in order to be able to admit that your position is indefensible. In essence, have the ability to admit that you're wrong. Without that you're just going to be doing a lot of talking and not a lot of thinking, which is what got you to your idiotic conclusion in the first place.
Well Mike does seem to have a lot to say without saying anything at all. I like to refer to this as verbal diarrhea. It doesn't take him long for him to bring up god. Remember what I said about unreasonable beliefs? Well, the etymology for bigot mentions that it may have come from "by God" revolving around religious hypocrisy.
In his twitlonger response, he reveals the true nature of his position regarding opposing same sex marriage. And that reason is because he's one of the many people, due to geographical birthplace, found an imaginary friend they can talk to with a nifty book that tells them how to think instead of thinking for themselves. See to people like Mike the LGBT are not only destroying themselves, they're creating a level of spiritual decay that will somehow have an impact on reality. There's a little teeny tiny itsy bitsy teeny weeny problem with that though. It's completely batshit insane.
I've already written at great lengths regarding religion and how it's absurd for any human being to conclude without a shred of evidence that there are/is a god(s) that cares so much about what happens to man only after they evolved from apes and have been on Earth for 100k years without any intervention whatsoever. Greater writers and scholars than I have already pointed out the absolute disastrous consequences of beliefs without evidence and the absurdity of such supernatural claims. Same sex coupling is something that occurs in myriad species in nature. Somehow, to these morons, it's sinful. That's not something I care to hear or give any weight to. I've seen what mankind does with such beliefs. On the more moderate side you have parents disowning their own children and harassment from peers leading them to commit suicide. On the other you have human beings throwing others off of rooftops to their death. It's venemous scripture found in Abrahamic religions written by bronze age men that we have to thank for this. Thankfully, sounder minds prevail and we're moving forward. No thanks to Mike.
This is the reason I'm curt with you. This is the reason that your opinion and belief deserves absolutely no respect and is to be dismissed immediately. It's what we do with bad ideas like spraying kids with DDT to show how safe it is or that you should always put salt in your eyes. We stop doing it after identifying that it's harmful to us and/or others. Eventually. See the religious seem to think that because they deem something to be sacred that it's immune to scrutiny. It's not.
So the next time I call you a bigot and you think you're not being heard, on the contrary, I hear you loud and clear. You can go on spouting your nonsense on public forums all you want. I, on the other hand, don't have to listen to it. Nor do I have to give it any more weight than one would give a fairy tale or a schizophrenic's account of the world when they're off their medication. As a result, the table your sitting at becomes a lot smaller by the day. And that my friend is a step in the right direction. Because anyone holding onto the idea that some humans don't get to do certain things because of their sexual orientation is a bigot that's not operating at the capacity to help progress humanity. Don't like the word bigot? Fine, hypocritical cunt. Try that one on. Now fuck off.
