Sounding a bit pompous, but still...
"Confident rationalists are at best an annoying bunch. At worst they’re a threat to the republic."
And someone, who I agree with a lot, responds:
"President Bush shares your sentiments. As does Ayatollah Khomeini."

A community of people may build a formally consistent social sytem founded on nothing more than shared assumptions, and label it "rational scientific secularism." It's up to others to point out that its just bourgeois.
Nothing ever changes.
