Zealots of any stripe are dangerous, and best kept at arm's length, too frequently at gunpoint.

Zealotry is as zealotry does. America's revolution and its defense have always been carried out by zealots. It's not really the zealots who worry me. People who manipulate others are rarely passionate about the issues they fire up in the objects of their influence; it's usually something else they want instead.

I disagree. Our revolution and defense have been carried out by men of reasoned conviction. Zealotry has no use for reason.
