Which side has more "bigots"?

Liberals

Conservatives

I'll go with liberals on this one. There are certain Conservative groups like the KKK who flat out hate minorities, but the majority of liberals seem to have this fallacy that they are better than everyone who is not a liberal.

Well, they both suck in their own ways.

I'm only here because I remember reading about a study done by two Universities showing that Conservatives are more likely to research the opposing view than Liberals are.

They did the study by bringing up a debate point and having people click on a link to do research for the debate. The two links were pro and anti (abortion, gay marriage, etc). They found that subjects who found themselves to be more liberal usually just clicked the link in favor of their opinion and subjects who found themselves to be more liberal usually also clicked the link that opposes their opinion.

I can't find the study (looked through pages of Google), but if anyone can, that would be great.

I do notice, though, that arguing with Conservatives is less frustrating than arguing with Liberals. Conservatives seem to actually care about what I'm saying and know it's all opinion. Liberals tend to really think that if you disagree with them you must be a fuckin' idiot.

But that's based on my experience.

Bigot:

"a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own

one who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; one who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion ..."

Who does this sound like? Maybe the people that constantly attack white people, Christianity, [religion it's self], anyone who leans toward the right. Yeah, who does that sound like.

(Atheists also come to mind. Who are the ones and making fun of anyone who disagrees, comparing our god to Santa Clause and the easter bunny not having any respect for the beliefs of others. How arrogant could you be!?)

You. Calling liberals bigots because they have opinions that differ to yours is pretty bigoted, by your own definition.

"Maybe the people that constantly attack white people, Christianity, [religion it's self], anyone who leans toward the right."

attacks on white people - You must be referring to the plethora of white people who have been victims of racial hatred. Like in the 60's for example when black people got together with their white hoods and lynch poor innocent white people. Or perhaps how that same group of black people got together to flood juries with other black people, so that any white man accused of a crime was almost always convicted. All this evidence is clearly supported by how the majority of people in congress are either black and Hispanic, and how America's president's have been all black till just recently. Right? Ultra-liberal organizations like the KKK and the Neo-nazis are definitely way more bigoted than staunch conservative ones like gay rights activists and alike.

Attacks on Christianity and religion- Once again there can be seen a long history of atheists persecuting believers. Like in the middle ages when the atheists saw the light and decided to go on several crusades and invade Muslim areas because their beliefs were wrong. Or like how the atheists in Spain decided to start an inquisition to root out the believers, then burned them alive when they wouldn't give up their faith. Or just like that same group of Spanish atheists went to South America with Cortes and killed off almost all of the indigenous population because they believed in some sort of god.

Atheists- Atheists wouldn't compare Santa to god if Christians didn't make it so easy to do. If there is some sort of legitimate argument to make that analogy less true, please share. But just because you don't have an answer to an argument, that doesn't make the person you are arguing intolerant, it just makes you wrong. For the sake of my argument, here is a Santa vs god comparison.

Santa vs god

both live forever

both have magical powers

both know when you are sleeping

both know when you are awake

both know if you have been bad or good

both reward good behavior and punish bad

both exist in the minds of children

I don't know what planet you live on, but here on earth, conservatives are almost always more bigoted than liberals. Where do you see white people being persecuted and hounded? Where do you see Christians being persecuted by atheists? Last time I checked there weren't groups or violent, racist blacks going out and targeting whites. And there no atheists going out hunting Christians. There were however Christians killing atheist abortion doctors, and Muslims blowing up themselves to hurt Jews. All your examples of intolerance are completely backwards.

Thank you for proving my point.

You are a perfect example of what I'm talking about. We are still being blamed for racism that happened in the 60's. I was born in 1990. Why do I have to hear about that every time I try to defend my race as if it's my fault.

"Atheists wouldn't compare Santa to god if Christians didn't make it so easy to do."

So your excuse for being a bigot is that we make it easy for you?

Your argument seems to be that you have every right to be a bigot because of what happened in the past. Typical liberal.

I agree and disagree. I have met a lot of very conservative people (hinging on the point of racism and bloodlust) and some of them just copy and paste what they said or just refraise what they said with things already disproved and such. I personally research every thing that comes my way in politics and try to get both sides of the argument from the extream on one side and the extream of the other then the middle. Only then i can know what to do. Some Christans are also very aragant (im a Deist, someone who looks at God from a scientific angle) i have met alot of christains bashing gay people, black people, forgin people, Jews and Muslims for not being American or Christain. Many athiest are douches but they make a more factual argument than those who make one based on a really old book.

First of all you making a generalization against atheists, and you christians are the ones who think atheists are demons and think homosexuality is a sin. You are inherently rascist by your own holy book and if you are not then i praise you. Atheists have much more justification for their beliefs then christians.

Here's the titles of the last six books by the leader of the American Nazi Party:

-Guilty: Jew "Victims" and Their Assault on America

-If Jews Had Any Brains, They'd Be Christians

-Godless: The Church of Judaism

-How to Talk to a Jew(If You Must)

-Treason: Jew Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

-Slander: Jewish Lies About the American Right

Oh whoops, my mistake. I accidentally switched the word "Jew" for "Liberal", "Christians" for "Republicans" and "leader of the American Nazi Party" for "bestselling conservative author Ann Coulter".

I'm sorry, but comparing anybody to Nazis in any way is pretty unnecessary and bigotted in and of itself.

Well, there certainly is one political Party that has tried to use a racist "Southern Strategy" to win national elections for the last many decades, and that party in the GOP.

i say conservatives. They don't want gay people to get marred and stuff. No reason other than dislike of them. In the past they have been against Rights for African Americans, Women and such. Its easy to be a racist and be a republican at the same time than it it to be a racist democrat because democrats believe that all people are equal and racism says that one is the best.

It seems all to obvious that conservatives have more bigots then liberals. The glaring evidence is last years presidential elections, consisting of not only Sara Palin, who even conservatives can admit should be on this list, but also Mike Huckabee, who believes the bible is inerrant.

Side: Conservatives

No question, the conservatives have bigots because they apparently follow the bible code more.

Side: Conservatives

Easy Answer! The Conservatives are notorious for having more bigots.
