This line in the article strikes me as uncalled for name-calling. There are many who fit this description who probably are our friends. Or are even us!
“with all the other blonde-haired, blue-eyed, Bible-loving suburbanites sporting QVC jewelry”
I don’t think there is anything wrong with any of those things!
We can’t demand respect and then resort to the same kind of name-calling they use. At least we can’t successfully.
