I had a sudden epiphany reading that, that political factions find their counterparts in religious institutions.|
Republican believers seem to be huge un-moving monolithic entities like Catholic and Eastern Orthodox, that thrive on authority and tradition and great principles as long as they don't have to actually follow them. But will visit their principles on Easter, Christmas, and election day.
Democratic groups seem to be the storefront churches of politics in the ghetto that love their singing and clapping, and other virtue signalling, but want to believe what they WANT to believe. And as soon as the get up to about 200 people somebody will decide that half the congregation isn't sufficiently righteous or holy and split into factions. And some lively young preacher with a good set of lungs is welcome as long as he knows his place. But if he does something foolish like tell all the church ladies they shouldn't be sporting all those fancy expensive hats he's dead meat.
