“Bigot” has been given a new dictionary definition, by Joel Abbott.
The Oxford Dictionary, used by Google … (and thus the foremost definition anyone on the interwebs will see) has updated their definition of “bigot.”
The traditional definition:
The historical definition was someone who was “intolerant toward those holding different opinions.” …
The term “bigot” dates from the 16th century, and its historical meaning was “sanctimonious person” or “religious hypocrite.” Its meaning expanded outside religious connotation by 1680.
Historically, a bigot would be a hypocrite who refused to listen to or tolerate any viewpoints other than their own. You might also call such a person obtuse and unagreeable.
The woke definition:
Today, the word is applied to anyone who doesn’t follow the diktats of the Woke mob; hence why a Christian believing in 5,000 years of biblical teaching on marriage is deemed a bigot for opposing a transgender two-spirited furry that wants to marry xi/xer chandelier.
The new definition leaves little doubt that this inference is being taken further by the intelligentsia that want you to know what to believe and think:
“A person who is obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group.” …
Are you “unreasonably attached” to any beliefs? Like say, that Jesus Christ is exclusively the only hope for eternal life? … Or that giving sex changes to kids is a brutal form of child abuse? Or that men shouldn’t be in the restroom with your teenage daughter?
If so, this new definition justifies animus toward you. It‘s now okay to hate you for “clinging” to beliefs deemed unacceptable.
Where would woke be if they couldn’t characterize others as “racist” and “bigots”? Even if they had to change the meanings of those words to make it so.
