As pointed out by Utah's Governor, in regards to anybody but people like him, white, male, Christians, Bannon fits the definition of a bigot...https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bigot
Bigot: a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.
Obstinate:: stubbornly adhering to an opinion, purpose, or course in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.
Intolerant: unwilling to grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters.
Orin Hatch said he resents "anyone attacking any person's religious views, but particularly our own Christian LDS faith and the selfless service of missionary work."
I guess he'd resent "The Book of Mormon on Broadway" then, which mocks MORmONism, the Book of Mormon and the Mormon missionary program. But is it bigoted? I don't think they give 9 Tony's and a Grammy to bigotry do they?
So what's the difference between Bannon attacking Mitt Romney's "Honor and Integrity" for dodging the draft by serving a mission and us criticizing Mormonism here on ethical, moral, philosophical or theological grounds?
It's not intolerant to speak up against an abusive organization that has preyed upon your family for 7 generations, it's standing up against an abuser. It's not being obstinate to stubbornly adhere to an opinion, purpose, or course because of reason, arguments, or persuasion. It's the opposite of bigotry. Mormons are obstinate, stubbornly adhering to an opinion, purpose, or course in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.
Mormonism is the very definition of delusion: a mistaken belief that is held with strong conviction even when presented with superior evidence to the contrary.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delusion
I do my best to present the superior evidence to the contrary to disabuse Mormons of their delusions, they are just impervious to it due to their strongly held convictions in mistaken beliefs.
