[Phys-L] Re: FL stamps out dictator professors

I'm curious how John would define a religious zealot. Are persons who
are fanatical about helping others, feeding the poor, rehabilitating
drug addicts and alcoholics, or taking in foster children or adopting
children religious zealots if they do these things out of a deep
passion for serving God? It seems that you define a religious zealot as
those who would shoot doctors and dump garbage of people's lawns
because they disagree with them. I would define a religious zealot as
one who is deeply passionate and committed to her or his faith.

At this point in time I think we have much more to fear from the
zealots than from the atheistic zealots. Atheistic zealots may be
minded, but I do not think they shoot doctors, or dump garbage on
lawns because they disagree with them. At the present moment the
of religious zealots have allied themselves with the Republican right,
by doing this are having greater success at pushing their agenda.
