I just hate being pigeonholed as a hate monger or bigot," says Robert Hoehn, who contributed $25,000 to the campaign for Prop 8, which amended California's Constitution to exclude same-sex marriage.

If you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Also, leave the planet.

I don't like to defend these people, but they have a point: attack something people hold as sacred, or even seem to attack it, and they will react.

But you love donating money to amend the Constitution to take away rights. Money that could go to actually help people, you use to hurt and dehumanize others by instilling YOUR religious beliefs.

Like I say, I'm not for religion in any way, but I would never vote to take away your right to practice..I wouldn't even want to put that on a bill to be dictated by others. I'm not a hate monger or a bigot such as yourself, and you can hide behind your fucking religion all you want. So sad..

@dpareja:

The issue isn't that they're reacting, since everyone expected them to; it's that they're reacting based on intolerance and bigotry.

And we can, and should, call them out on that.

I've heard the trespassing analogy before, and continue to be baffled as to why they think it's a good argument.

Then don't do hateful, bigoted things.

Riin-thrall: Of course. But from their point of view, it's not intolerance and bigotry that makes them react, it's defense of traditional values (or the like). Pointing out that this is just intolerance and bigotry really only serves to make them dig in deeper. So it's not that I don't agree that it's intolerance and bigotry; it is, and anything they call it is just lipstick on a pig. I just question the efficacy of dealing with people like Hoehn who are giving money to "Yes on 8" and the like. Far better to talk to undecideds or soft supporters (who aren't giving money) and make them see it for what it is.

Of course, this is FSTDT, and we don't actually talk to these people here, we just make fun of them. So to you, Bob, I hope you discover the many uses of the prostate. Soon.

I just hate being pigeonholed as a hate monger or bigot," says Robert Hoehn,

Then you should not have A: donated money to a hate campaign, and B: then bragged about it.

I'm quite sure the people you're bigoted against hate being pigeonholed as perverts and evildoers, Robert.

Fundies, they're only capable of feeling sorry for themselves.

Sure, but Bob, please realise that when we use those terms, it's only for simplicity's sake that we're omitting prejudiced evil meddling hypocritical sanctimonious civil-rights abusing neighbour-oppressing totalitarian pharisitical douche bag.
We don't mean those terms don't also apply to you. They do. You have made it so.

Hate mongers and bigots typically do.

That's right guys, compare Robert Hoehn to Hitler and Stalin. Great logic there.

Then don't donate what is a year's income for many people to a cause whose entire goal is to make life more difficult for LGBT people.

@ dpareja: I do talk to people who oppose my marriage elseweb and--this is the very difficult part--within my own family. The cartoon sucked, too. Nobody who wants to be same-sex married is trying to take away from others. It is the opponents who try to take away and who think that they get to control others' lives.

Then stop being one.

Then stop being a hate monger and bigot.

If one hates "being pigeonholed as a hate monger or bigot" one should stop one's hateful and bigot-like behavior.
