    For me it is the person who acts and seeks action to deny others something.

As people we all have likes and dislikes and as intelligent people we overcome them when it comes to actions that are discriminatory. I for instance do not associate with some groups of people because I do not wish to get into an antagonizing situations with people with whom I may share other common ground. There are of course always exceptions.
    no problem and it seems me and you agree with the definition, it really takes "action" like you said

    bigots are those that are actively trying to fight against equal rights and as an american its hypocritical and vile.

    Also to be noted in light of the post by TB about name calling, that in my experience, by far those who would not act on their personal prejudices, will not advocate or argue, debate against equal rights and as such the label of bigot does apply to those who so vehemently speak against equal rights.

    correct.
    THeres nothing wrong with calling a bigot a bigot IF its accurate. just like theres nothing wrong with calling a murderer a murderer, a christian a Christian or an independent an independent.

    its a very simple solution, if one has hurt feelings by ACCURATELY being called a bigot stop being one.
