Here is my response:

[quote] Good stuff by two acquaintances of mine from the world of Progressive Baptists. This is just the tip of the iceberg however. Robert Wuthnow in Rough Country spotlights Lee Atwater's "****** memo" of the early 80s, a strategy that worked in concert with the fundamentalist leadership in the takeover of the Southern Bapotist Convention, particularly the latent Bircher Paul Pressler and North Carolina's Jesse Helms. and Nat book award nominee Hoschild in her Strangers in their Own Land imagines the Oil politics of the world of Pressler to be the New cotton a plantation economy in the southeast that has become the playground for pols like Atwater, Karl Rove and now Steve Bannon. While two of my contemporary heroes of the faith, Campolo and Claiborne, call for a wiser Christian brotherhood, it will be less nobler, sophomoric without an unflinching well broadcast informed history of the recent path.....In addition to Hoschild Garry Wills recent reviews in ny books dot com are must reading, on Scarborough and EJ Dionne [quote]

It's a red letter notion; the sepulchres were white, after all.
