I doubt they were right winged nutjobs, but they could have potentially been swayed by anti gay statements brought about by so many US citizens discriminating against them by fighting to keep them from being able to marry one another.

"Could have potentially been swayed" is not enough to even bring the two subjects into the same conversation.

I'm not sure. Have either of them been accused of physically assulting someone because of their sexual preference?

Do you know it was because of their preference? Did it state for sure the individual was gay? Or were they just shouting anything they could think of? You are making alot of assumptions it appears. Was the ref gay when Kobe did it? The fan when noah did it?

I'm not claiming it is and even if it were it would be no justification for anyone doing this. That's why it was worded as such because I don't know. Young people (or any age really) are influenced by what they see and hear.

My point is that bigotry is usually a product of upbringing and the type of people one is around. A lot of time people that have bigoted feelings towards another group is due to other influential people during a young person's life who also share these feelings. In my opinion people protesting and barking about how horrible same sex marriage is and how homosexuality is wrong has to have some sort of influence on people.

I'd bet that most people that are so against homosexuality or even hate gays probably have an influential person in their life that also has the same hate. Although I don't claim to know these hypothetical people's political affiliations.

true, they could have been idiots that think being gay is less than being straight and that's what they say to demean anyone.
