    Which bigotry is more widespread? Anti-Semitism or anti-Catholicism/Christianity?

    My opinion, in the US traditionally anti-Catholicism, I'm unsure about today. In most other countries, where Jews live, Anti-Semitism.

    You're quoting comedy shows as proof of widespread religious bigotry in Hollywood in hopes of justifying religious bigotry from Mel Gibson? OK

    Not to mention the fact that telling a disrespectful or irreverent joke isn't bigotry.

    Bozell makes good points. The truth is that anti-Semitism tends to increase ALONG WITH the prohibition on expressing it, something the Gibson story reveals, I believe. When people realize their careers will be destroyed by saying ANYTHING less than glowing about Jews, that tends NOT to make them like Jews.

    People who go around saying how "philo-Semitic" they are are full of shit. More likely, they're AFRAID of Jews. They're like the emperor with no clothes of our society.

    With a legal wing (JADL) that will make you pay for stepping out of line.

    What does it mean to be a religious bigot? I despise the religion of Islam. I blame the religion for many of todays problems. That makes me a 'religious bigot'? I could say "Fucking muslims" or "muslims are the cause of all wars today" in a drunken tirade, but can't say anything about Jews?

    Correct--you are also free to trash anything Christian without repurcussion. Apparently there is "good" bigotry and "bad" bigotry depending on what religion you attack.

    I guess that does make you a bigot regarding Islam according to the meaning of bigotry. :eek: The reason you "can't say anything" about Jews is because it's become un-PC in our country to say anything negative about them....largely due to a liberal media controlled largely by liberal Jews.

    According to Webster a bigot is 1. a person who holds blindly and intolerantly to a particular creed, opinion 2. a narrow-minded, predudiced person. Bigotry is the behavior, attitude, or beliefs of a bigot; intolerance, prejudice.

    I guess if one has strong opinions about anything he could be called a bigot. I suppose that's why it's a favorite word among liberals. Even haters of pedophiles could be considered bigots.
