Just Write the Book Already

See his response to Claes Ryn. His latest: The Benedict Option & 'Faithful Presence Within'

The problem here: the dichotomy between the Church and the world -- should Christians strengthen their parishes and local Churches? Yes. Do they need to withdraw from the world? If the society they live in is of the world, then yes. If it is am embodiment of secularism, then yes. But if it is not, but traditional but non-apostolic Christian? Then not necessarily -- alliances can still be formed, if not political friendships.

Has Rod Dreher ever found himself fitting in a traditional Southern community? Or does his impulse to be a moderate SJW preclude him from doing so? Or maybe he's just a rootless individual.
