I'm thinking perhaps "insistently", but I don't think that conveighs the absoluteness of what I'm looking for and described in the question's title.

Any other ideas?

    Are you "adamantly opposed" to something? – Michael Owen Sartin Jan 19 '14 at 16:06
  • Does tone matter? For example, definitions I find for resolutely don't involve words like stubborn, which may imply more stigma, while definitions to other words like pertinaciously do. – user39720 Jan 19 '14 at 16:36
  • @MichaelOwenSartin If you include a reference and a definition, you have a good answer. – bib Jan 19 '14 at 16:42

    Intransigently conveys the 'refusing to negotiate' attitude. – Edwin Ashworth Jan 19 '14 at 16:43

You might be "adamantly opposed" ("adamant" being unshakable in purpose, determination, or opinion; stone-like),

you might be "vehemently opposed" ("vehement" being zealous, ardent, impassioned),

you might be "violently opposed" ("violence" is seldom the answer).

Perhaps "uncompromisingly"?

Unwilling to grant concessions or negotiate; inflexible: took an uncompromising stance during the peace talks.

How about arrogantly or overbearingly?
