category error

There is a sort of category error going on here.
Anabaptists are defined by the fact that they believe in 'believers baptism', i.e. they don't believe in infant baptism, and if they were baptized as an infant, they think they should be baptized 'again' when they become a believer. "Ana" in Greek means "again" or "Twice", referring to re-baptism. Zwingli and Calvin didn't believe in re-baptism; in fact, the government in their areas(and most European governments at the time) punished re-baptism with death by drowning. And some people accuse Zwingli of drowning Anabaptists since he was involved with government in his area. Some Anabaptists believe in the 5 points of Calvinism, but many of them don't.
