barelypoppins practically imperfect in every way writes that
Félix Julien Jean Bigot de Préameneu probably was not a bigot because he helped develop the Napoleonic Code:
*forbade privileges based on birth,
*allowed freedom of religion, and
*specified that government jobs go to the most qualified.
"If only the bigoted where all bigots for rights, freedoms and justice. But, I have found, sadly, they are not. And so, I become bigoted toward these bigots."
“The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour upon it, the more it will contract.”
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
