What a great word! I was reading a history of England and found this description of the Roundheads Puritan regime. It’s in a book called London, by Edward Rutherfurd, an amazing author. He takes you from pre-history times all the way up through to the present, recounting the story of several families who live during those eras. Moral bigotry: judging someone’s beliefs or lack of, by our own moral compass. I think it applies to other things rather than religion; I have seen some bigotry even in the ecological movement. It’s so easy to feel that one is right and everyone else is wrong. Something we need to guard against.
