Some people do seem to insist on that definition. I find it difficult to be intolerant of such opinions, since I don't know what the point of policing people semantically would be. If finding the correct way to perceive bigotry has the potential to save the world, even via asserting that the term is meaningless, have at it, my friend.

I have little inclination to treat this as some kind of intellectual crisis. Call my attitude intolerance if you like, or call it bigotry, if you're really worked up about it. I gain no sense of caution from finding that somebody at the other end of an internet pipe is really worked up about something.
