    No, religious people are not typically bigots. But bigots are typically very religious.

    I hope you're aware of the irony of including the definition of bigotry immediately before you made your bigoted statement.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush

    Absolutely they are, by definition. That doesn't mean that they want to harm others necessarily, but all of them think that people of other belief systems are wrong and many think that's going to send those people to eternal damnation. How is that not being a bigot?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Indeed. The first thing that leapt to mind when reading the OP was "Oh, you mean like the left is?"

    Right, their intolerance of intolerance shows their intolerance and is intolerable...

    of course not, at least not in this country

    most religious people are not bigots because it takes more than feelings to be intolerant it tpycially takes ACTIONS or complete judgement where one views others as lessers

    for example a person who THINKS and FEELS equal rights for gays is wrong is not a bigot based on that alone. But a person that tries to STOP a fellow american from having equal rights because they see that person as a lesser and not deserving of equal rights then they are now a bigot. Its the action, not the feeling.

    If you look fully, you'll notice that almost all people are bigots. Religious people included.

    I just found it odd or ironic that you'd post a definition of bigotry and then proceed to ask a bigoted question seeking to validate your bigoted opinion of a group you're apparently intolerant of.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    So that is what makes them bigoted?
