Honestly? Ask yourself that question. I rather be aware of a bigot's hate than be lied to by one disguised as a friend. But I knew when I made a comment about the left, that they'd all come out of the woodwork with some stereotypical statements on how republicans are supposedly prejudice, or just flat out make up stuff.
So you insult half the people on the board and then feign offense when someone says something in response?
Stay classy San Diego!
By the way, people often can't control having bigoted views towards a group of people (like disliking liberals). Sometimes, you simply just can't control what you think. What you CAN control, however, is whether or not to vocally express that bigotry. For some reason, you'd rather "be aware of a bigot's hate"? I hate to tell you, but lying to people about their bigotry is called being civilized. What would the world be like if everybody made no effort to hide their prejudices and made bigoted comments freely and openly? Would the world be better or worse? Ask yourself that question.
BTW, I'm certainly not excluding myself from this scenario as anybody that knows me here knows I have a problem with religion. What I've learned is that by expressing my feelings, nothing good has ever come of it, just like nothing good will ever come from making insulting comments against liberals. Who knows, you might just find you like yourself more. I know I do.
For what it's worth.
