Grace Dent's 'bigot' label is just intimidation

Published 31/05/2013

So, Grace Dent labels anyone who does not agree with the redefinition of marriage a "bigot" (Comment, May 24).

I think Grace needs to open her dictionary and find out the meaning of the word.

The aggressive, intolerant language she used in condemning others who hold a view different from her own is the manifestation of a bigot. Not only is her childlike knowledge and understanding of the Bible laughable, she displays the all-too-often-seen characteristics of someone who is anti-Christian and anti-anyone.

Using the fear factor of labelling someone a bigot is nothing but intimidation. This is nothing but psychological manipulation.
