But Mr. Card

OSC: "What is odd is that in every case they called me intolerant. They misunderstood the meaning of 'tolerance.'"

You are intolerant. You say that Mormons have a long tradition of rejecting the social customs of the surrounding culture. Great! Wonderful! Congratulations!

But now you and your church have intervened to change the law to match your beliefs even when the particular cultural issue had nothing to do with you. So much for being able to go your own way, no?

You've imposed your beliefs on your neighbors.

That is what the problem is.

We don't care what you teach. We really don't. You can teach your children that I'm a demon that drinks blood and tortures small animals and breaths black clouds of sin as long as you give us the right to get married.

Once you've interfered with the way that we interact with other gay people in the ways that we choose, that is when we start to get upset.
