What's The Difference?

Bush's advisors said "the president was seeking to come across as opposing gay marriage but not as anti-gay"1 (from this article about Bush's remarks on trying to push through an anti-gay marriage Constitutional amendment). I wonder how that can be true. How can you be "pro-gay" (as would have to be the case if you are not anti-gay) if you support denying them the ability to marry who they want to, and, in my opinion, status as equal citizens?

Let me ask you this, would you have believed a Southern white elitist during the 1960's who said he was for segregation, but was not "anti-black"?

1 I find it interesting that Bush's advisors say he was seeking to "come across" as not being anti-gay, but they did not say that he isn't anti-gay (of course, they didn't say that he was either)
