If the “admired dead” are in a position to do anything, I would hope they have better things to do than hang in the ether and approve things on Earth.

No sensible person would ever be happy betraying the approval of the admired dead just to win some passing approval in the here and now.

“…and that’s why Martin Luther was a heretic and the Protestant sects are a sham.”

“…and that’s why the Apostles were sinners for going against the law, and it was proper and just for Jesus to be crucified.”

Wait, is that not what David Brooks meant?

Typical for Brooks. Mindless traditionalism dressed up real pretty with lots of verbiage to distract from said mindless traditionalism.

re: #3 EPR-radar

I think Brooks really longs for a mythical past that is just that; mythical.

Brooks has been a fruitcake over all the years I have read him. Sometimes, but rarely, he writes something good. Mostly, he writes tripe that wouldn’t be out of place on Breitbart. His writing does however have more finesse than the Breitbart monkeys usually do,.
