    Glad I'm not a religious bigot then.

    Being a bigot would imply I favor one religion over another.

    Please at least know the definition before you pretend to know it and embarrass yourself again. It has nothing to do with favoring one over another.

    Main Entry: big·ot
    Pronunciation: \ˈbi-gət\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: French, hypocrite, bigot
    Date: 1660

    : a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
    The bolded fits you in regards to Islam

    No, that's just an observation. It's not an insult, just a comment on your debating behavior. And I'm not sure I ever said you're a dodger, just that you are dodging.

    No it doesn't. Look up the definition.

    Under that definition, a person can be a bigot and still be right.

    Wiki includes the following.

    The correct use of the term requires the elements of obstinacy, irrationality, and animosity toward those of differing devotion.

    .. supposed to be the most Librul, tolerant everybody love everybody country on the planet?
    Because I have never heard the U.S. referred to as such. Nor would I want it to be.
