The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
It depends. First off, sin is an absurd concept, let's get that out there right now. It's really saying "I think this is wrong because I believe an invisible man in the sky doesn't like it". It's ridiculous. Secondly though, I really don't see people who just have an unthinking submission to their Bible and don't internalize it. They are taking a "crime" and almost always assigning some sort of penalty for engaging in that "crime", whether it's a penalty that happens in the real world or one they pretend will happen in the afterlife.So in that context, how is believing adultery is a sin by definition bigotry? It seems to me that only once they attach personal hatred - rather than unthinking submission to their bible - and attempt to make the act illegal in our laws does it veer into intolerance
Besides, there's nothing necessarily wrong with intolerance. I am absolutely and proudly intolerant of pedophilia. That's not a bad thing.
I answered the original question "no". It is easy to pick on people of religious faith because of the sins of a few, in particular, religious fundamentalists. If the original question was posed regarding religious fundamentalists, I may have said yes. If one asked "are most bigots also religious fundamentalists" (whether they currently practice of not), I may have been inclined to say yes. But to try and tar all people of religious faith as though they behave like the fundamentalists (who tend to simplistic literal interpretations, many times out of context with the full meaning of their scripture or doctrine), that's just wrong IMO.
