The original definition of the word bigotry.

A bigot was once simply someone who wouldn't allow anyone else to have an opinion that differed from their own. The older definition has become semi-obsolete now, but it still turns up on occasion (for example, repeatedly in the play version of Inherit the Wind).

The formal academic term for this phenomenon is "the false consensus effect."
