Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Zealot

Zealot: noun – originally, a member of a Jewish sect in Palestine, whose passionate opposition to foreign rule led to the Jewish uprising against Rome, ad 66–70; someone who is zealous for a cause; someone carried away by excess of zeal; a fanatic.

'Most of those criminal idiots who strap explosives to their bodies and kill innocents indiscriminately, consider themselves zealots, but any reasonable person knows they are sociopaths without a shred of respect for any life.'

Pic: A bright subject to counter the depressing one conjured by today's word.
