One dictionary defines "bigot" as: "One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ."

I think a lot of people use the first part of the definition ... One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics ... and imply that's a bad thing.  When it's actually the "intollerant" part that's bad.  Most people qualify as a bigot using just the first part.   ;D

Awful lot of bigoted attitudes towards religious folks in the FSP and no one seems to care.

Can you expound?  Describe behavior that you would call bigoted toward religious folks.

If what the guy with the worm piture says is true about the moderator, that he doesn't want the GOVERNMENT to recognize a certain marriage, then that is wrong, but I thought we libertarians didn't want ANY marriage to be recognized by the GOVERNMENT with special favors.  If the moderator said what you claim, I hope he meant that.
