An Interview with Patrick Hynes
Our buddy Patrick Hynes is interviewed
in connection with the upcoming release of his book
, In Defense of the Religious Right.Miner: Some media conservatives seem actually uncomfortable with the Religious Right. Why?
Hynes: Conservatives have their elites, too. And, of course, there are different kinds of conservatives. But those who dismiss the Religious Right do so out of ignorance, I believe. These folks generally operate under old, worn out stereotypes and believe polite society would be embarrassed if Christians were to represent the public face of conservatism.
