anti-gay, anti-catholic, anti-nonchristian are not anti-american

It is remarkable that in the brouhaha over the guilt by association hysteria regarding Presidential hopefuls McCain and Obama (Clinton is no doubt next, she won't want to be left out), that the right and left just talk right past one another. From the left, a good example is Marc Ambinder Hagee, Wright, Parsley, Fallwell, Obama and McCain who equates what Wright says with Hagee and Parsley. The problem is that while the left may see these as equal, the right doesn't. The right views Wright as "anti-american" while the others are anti-muslim or anti-catholic. That is not the same thing. Here is a good example of how the right views this stuff, from Atlas Shrugs Obama's Pastor is "A TOTAL HATER" The last line of this thing is that the Reverend Wright is anti-white and anti-american.

I conclude that from the right it is NOT anti-american to be anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-black, anti-muslim, anti-catholic, but it is anti-american to be anti-white. And from the left, it is anti-american to be bigoted. That might be a nice ideal, but I think it is quite American to be bigoted. I'm not defending it, I'm just saying, that bigtory is all over America. It is about as anti-american as loving one's car.
