Anyone that has had the audacity to challenge gay marriage or any other of the hot topic sins of our day has heard this repeatedly: bigot! What does it even mean? Not what you think it does, actually, as discussed many times before. As I said a couple months back, we should be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger. These words are used to end debate instead of encourage it. Instead of asking questions and seeking truth, our culture has shut off entire arguments with hateful, derogatory terms like bigot, racist, misogynist, homophobic, and more. Our culture has become slow to hear, quick to speak, and very quick to anger. Step out of line and your ass will be chewed out. This isn’t tolerance, far less cordial conversation.
