Best Answer: Danforth is obviously someone who values order and religious purity (hence, Puritans) above all. This statement is symptomatic of that fundamental belief. Whether that is true or not is, of course, a matter of conviction. Although in my opinion, it is difficult to be fully "with" or "against" anything at all! That is just not how the world works, it seems.
