Bigotry is an interesting word

A synonym of bigot is dogmatist and a dogmatist is one who dogmatizes. To dogmatize means to speak or write dogmatically (intransitive verb). The transitive form of the verb means to state as a dogma or in a dogmatic manner. So any time you have a religious body with dogmas you have a bigoted group of people, who, if not controlled by civil powers, will construct methods to destroy others of which they choose to be intolerant. So a good choice of words.
