The actual definition from Merriam-Webster Online is "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". This means if a person has no tolerance for beliefs other than their own. However, in the modern day, bigot is used to refer to those who oppose social liberal agendas, but especially those who oppose gay marriage and/or think same-sex intercourse/sexual acts are immoral and should not be practiced. Also used to refer to Christians.
Rational Person: I think that Al Qada could qualify as bigots. They killed 3,000 American civilians and the World Trade Center because we don't conform to their beliefs.
Liberal: What!? You don't approve of gay marriage. You are obviously a bigot and oppose it for no reason other than hate for gay people.
