I'm not reinterpreting any rights.omicron1 said:Sure. We all have every right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; the right to marry someone of the opposite gender... on this point I believe everyone (except perhaps a very small contingent of fringe cases) will agree.Glerken said:When do people have a debate about "sexuality isn't on the same scale as gender or race"
I'm saying that people who believe homosexuals shouldn't have the same rights as heterosexuals are bigots. That's it.
It's when one reinterprets "rights" to fit a particular viewpoint, then labels all in opposition "bigots" or worse, that we have a problem.
A bigot is someone who is intolerant towards other groups of people.
Saying a certain group of people shouldn't have the same rights as yours is being bigoted.
