Alternatively, one can criticize zealotry in the name of religion at the same time as criticizing zealotry in the advocacy of a particular type of sexual expression that some believe is "sinful". And, in fact, most religions openly tolerate diversity of sexual preference provided that the practice of such preferences are not exploitative. It doesn't mean that they need to agree with it, and not agreeing with the practice of homosexuality doesn't make someone a "bigot".

And yes, while not all "evangelicals" agree with the practice of homosexuality, others are quite tolerant of it. Painting with a broad brush on this topic is just another form of "bigotry", in this case religious bigotry.
I've heard Evangelicals blame gays for HURRICANES among many other things in my lifetime. Maybe it's not "bigotry" as you claim but, at the very least they're out of their minds. And I for one, think letting such people gain political dominance is a very dangerous thing.

Your ridiculous arguments need more straw, Biff.
