Zealotry

Is it not sad that zealotry can destroy in an instant what belief and faith have preserved for millennia?

Remember that quote from Paul Watson of Greenpeace:  “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
Perhaps what he should have thought about is: “It is the certainty that they possess the truth that makes men cruel.”
― Anatole France.

There is nothing in this world more dangerous than a true believer.

If we are lucky, they will spend years in a Peruvian Jail.  But don’t bet much on it happening.
