It's NOT bigotry?
Over at Slate, Richard Ford has posted an article headlined, "Hate and Marriage," where he argues that folks don't oppose the rights of same sex couples to marry because they're bigots but, rather, because they're trying to preserve traditional gender roles and the idea of a same sex couple makes them feel insecure.
But, Ford has it wrong, even if his psych analysis is right. It's still bigotry.
Keep in mind the white supremecists who claim that their movement isn't about hating non-whites, it's about "preserving the white race." Still bigotry.
A decade or two from now we're going to look back at this debate and shudder, the same way we look back at America before the civil rights movement.
