Biskit BS: What means bigot? (76* d) RE: BS: What means bigot? 13 Mar 05

The first time I ever heard Bigot used in a sentnce was when; Meathead (michel) called Archie Bunker one,..when in truth they were equally biggoted (sp)Meathead and Gloria were just as intolerant and set in their ways as was Archie. While Edith,(Archie's wife),was the only one of the group willing to listen to both sides of an argument and try to come to a rational decision. Ironically Edith was usually cast as the loveable idiot. Something I never agreed with, Edith was thoughtful, tolerant, and loving, and while she had definte opinions,she wieghed carefully the effect her opinion would have on a fellow human being,and then determined whether or not to share them.
And that, Wolfgang, I believe, was when the meaning of Bigot changed from "overly pious" as we learned in school, to the rather distorted catch-all phrase for anyone that doesn't agree with the name caller.
Peace!(Through Understanding)
