Quote of the Day

When does the anti-gay Christian become irrefutably a bigot? The moment he or she does anything to restrict the rights of any other person based solely upon the fact that that person is gay.

You, anti-gay Christian, have the God-given freedom and the American right to believe whatever you want, and to worship and congregate with anyone and everyone who shares your beliefs. What sane person would argue that?

It is not beliefs which make a person a bigot. It is actions.
