Who are the real bigots?

ParkerboyParkerboy Posts: 7,048 Admiral
The hard core liberals are the true bigots. A perfect example is all those who have repeatedly, loudly, and shrilly called Mr. Cathey a bigot. In truth these people are the real bigots in that they are totally and utterly intolerant of Mr. Cathey's belief in traditional marriage. The definition of bigot according to Dictionary.com is : a person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.

Certainly seems to describe those who call Mr. Cathey a bigot.

    uhm . . would a bigot be someone who thinks another person is inferior because of their skin color, sexual preference or religion?

    And where does anything Mr. CATHEY indicate that he is a bigot? All he did was state that he believes marriage is between a man and a woman. It is those like you who are the bigots, wanting to destroy his business. Welcome to the neighborhood Missy you pathetic hypocrite.

    uhm, where did I mention anything about Cathy? I figure the insert picture of Peckerboy would even clue YOU in that it was about YOU. As in YOU are a bigot, and to my knowledge NOT a Liberal.

    You just proved your ignorance and inability to stay on topic. This thread is about the liberals being the true bigots towards Mr. Cathey, not me. Please feel free to start a thread about me if you like but you know nothing more about me than you do about Mr. Cathey.

    No, this thread is about YOUR opinion that for Liberals to disagree with Cathy that they are somehow the REAL bigots. I simply pointed out that you are a REAL bigot and not a liberal, basically pointing out your ignorance and hypocrisy in starting a thread like this in the first place.

    So I would say that I am very much on topic, since the topic is that liberals are really bigots and I have proven that to be untrue.

    What Cathy said is no more important to me than what the President said about gay marriage. Non issue, nothing to see here. I'm more about the economy. So why am I posting on this thread? I dunno, good question.

    Mike, you are absolutely right, however that will be saved for the debates. Now let's get back to Bust positioning in the white house!
