Sounds kinda arrogant to me, one persons wisdom is another persons learning.

I agree. Learning does not make a bigot, but it can lead to bigotted thinking, if one has not gained wisdom to analyze what one learns, rather than just absorb it. Granted wisdom and learning can and do go hand in hand, but learning in its most basic form of memorizing facts, figures and formulas is not enough by itself.
