Pretend there are no consequences? Or do the consequences just not matter? In 2004, following Lawrence v. Texas, eleven states put anti-gay measures on their ballot. Those measures passed in all eleven states. Between 2004 and 2012, homophobic marriage laws and other such restrictions ran nearly perfect. 33-0-1. That is to say, 32-1 until the next year, when voters in Arizona corrected their vote from the prior year and passed a marriage discrimination law. 33-0. The impacts of these laws are what you are ignoring, Billvon. My tolerance of bigotry, and the question of seeking bigots out, is certainly a viable question. However, so is the question of what happens when not enough attention is paid. Tell us, sir: Why does what happens to people matter none to you? These disputes have human consequences, Billvon. Why are those consequences irrelevant to you? Why don't you care about the damage these people do? How, exactly, do these peoples feelings, hurt by the prospect of not getting to be superior under the law—that is, hurt by the prospect of being equal to their neighbors—matter more to you than the harm done to human beings by these bigoted policies?
