  •  Speaking just for myself ... (12+ / 0-)

    I consulted Merriam-Webster online and came up with this for bigotry:

    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 (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
    I don't hate Santorum. I just think he is ignorant. I am not intolerant of his right to exist or to express his ignorance. I just think he is unfit to hold public office.

    Obstinance is persistence in one's opinion despite facts, reason, rational persuasion.

    My opinion of Santorum is exactly the opposite of obstinant. It's based on facts, reason, etc.
