45. But, IMO you DO accept bigotry in Francis's case, the

way you accept other things automatically.

That's the point. Ignoring or denying what is good about those seen as "others" is an absolute requirement for bigotry. The sum of any Catholic is NOT those few issues he disagrees with you on.

None of this is about changing your opinions on on those few issues, which I happen to share. It's about the dreadful, destructive phenomenon of demonizing others.

Again, how do the good and bad in you average out? As a whole person, how to you compare to other normal people? Forget a giant like Francis. Just...normal people. Like all the Republicans who demonize you because they disagree with you on some issues? Do you feel you are at least less prone to demonizing than them, less contributing than the typical Republican to the potential for all the demonizing oters leads to? Maybe it's confined to Francis himself and not extended to the 1.5 billion Catholics on this planet?
