    ....some use the term "bigotry" as an excuse for blanket suppression of speech that is critical of fundamentalist expressions of religion.

    While I agree that "bigotry" is not a "valid viewpoint", it is not, in fact, a viewpoint at all, but the refusal to entertain other viewpoints.

    Ironically, although the term "bigotry"  has been used a lot in this thread, there is an argument that when someone ruthlessly hide-rates comments they don't like (as opposed to comments that are hide-ratable under the rules), they are expressing a form of resistance to divergent viewpoints that is nothing more than a form of bigotry itsself. After all, bigotry is the intolerance of views other than your own.

    Such a shame and a very high irony. There is a higher ground. Take it.

    If you hate government, don't run for office.
