Hatred, Bigotry, Fun and Games
No, disagreeing with someone doesn't mean that you're full of hate, a bigot, or intolerant, anymore than disagreeing with your pal over whether to order buffalo wings mean that you have an irrational hatred of delicious chicken dishes or are an intolerant anti-hot sauce bigot. Jimmy Akin explains rather better than I can:
The take-home point for the reader is that just because you disagree with someone, whether it is on the subject of homosexual "marriage" or any other, doesn't automatically make you a hater.
You may be one--if you harbor actual hatred. But if you don't, you aren't. It's as simple as that.
