    I think we can possibly establish unnecessary intolerance from necessary intolerance. If an action is of no immediate physical harm it should have tolerance. Do you agree?
    And to summarize, some bigotry is needed. Some bigotry is not.

    Nah. I dont buy it. Most bigotry comes from plain old 'people'. As for the word 'intolerance'...thats just a bull**** meme.

    No. It's simply a pointless question for this forum.

    Your bigotry is worse, because it involves denying personhood from human beings so that when you say you're intolerant of harm to "other people," you're specifically excluding harm to those humans you have bigotry against.

    To tolerate the intolerable would be an impossibility, by definition. Therefore, the only way you could accomplish such a feat would be some kind of rip in the fabric of space time....or a relativity vortex of sorts. Which is no bother, but you'll need to get a permit for that.

    Does this indicate an about face for you when it comes to defending the very least tolerant among you?

    a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.

    My experiences tell me yes, all people who strictly try to follow ancient religions are bigots. I'm curious of other peoples opinions on this.
    Had you worded your question as "Are people of religious faith who try to be in the public limelight typically bigots?" Then I would have said yes. As a religious person, I find myself much offended by those who claim the same religion as I but are intolerant bastards. However, experience has shown me that they are a visible minority.

    I agree very much with this. And it doesn't help that one side wants to shove them into the limelight because they are so damn awful that they are a political gold mine.

    Remember Tebow? Remember how his faith was criticized? Maybe not as bad as possible, but he was a great role model in a sport filled with bad ones. Remember this past super bowl? All the commercials? Peyton was asked not to talk about his faith. So we see good role models who are Christian in an arena that DESPERATELY needs good role models..."shunned" for one thing that played a huge role in making them a positive role model.

    There is no doubt that faith can be used incorrectly. And that gets the press. But how often is it mentioned that faith is used to justify great works and positive attitudes? Not often. Hell. I love Jimmy Carter. Not as a president, but as a man. He was a raging liberal AND a strong Christian. I wonder if he would be shunned by his party now?
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
