Hating stupid people might be bigoted since it is genetic and isn't their fault; it can be hard to deal with though

Hating ignorant people may also be bigoted since they may just have never been exposed to the knowledge; that can be cured

Hating willfully ignorant people is just and righteous

Nice and simple distinction. I often hate people for being stupid until I socialise with them a bit at university then the majority of the time it turns out they're nice people.

Saints live in flames; wise men, next to them.

Yup, I agree. People who have the brainpower, but it seems to lie dormant through laziness, lack of motivation, rudeness, antisocial behaviour, or just a "couldn't give a rat's arse" outlook on life and the world around them.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
