    Are People Of Religious Faith Typically Bigots?

    big·ot
    ˈbiɡət/
    noun
    noun: bigot; plural noun: bigots

    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.

    Typically no - they are not bigots. The SC AME church full of bigots? No I think that was made abundantly clear over the past 10 days.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's a pretty bigoted OP, if you ask me.
    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.

    No. But when they are bigots, it's particularly problematic since their bigotry is based on an authority that can't be challenged and therefore can't be reasoned with.

    And are you intolerant of those holding an opposing view?

    Not in my general experience. But that was more or less true of the homosexuals I had known up till a while ago.

    I'm only intolerant of people who wish to harm other people. A persons opinion is something I will always tolerate. Even if I disagree I will tolerate it. It's hard to believe that gays are tolerated in America, even with SCOTUS backing them. The backlash from people who are intolerant of gays is overwhelming from my perspective.

    The Left have redefined the word bigot to mean anyone who has the audacity to tell them "No".
