by Joseph Bottum
The "decent church-goin' women, with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces" of yesterday (to quote Burroughs), are the blue-check media crowd and institutional mandarins of today.
Recommend Bottum on the topic.

I recommend reading @JosephBottum's 'An Anxious Age' for how the church-going Episcopalian of the past became today's Whole Foods-shopping, BLM-sign-waving White liberal.
