    wrestled with the idea of whether (and how) one should be tolerant of bigots.  Not an easy reach but necessary, imo, because if you can't be tolerant of a bigot, what does that make you?

      You would be a bigot if you are opposed to whole groups of people because of who they are.

      Opposing bigotry is about opposing people because of what they do and how they act (namely in ways that hurt people)

      I'm not a bigot for being intolerant of rapists and human traffickers either.
