Re: “Hillsborough novelist Allan Gurganus on Moral Mondays and Local Souls, his first book in more than a decade

Writer Allan Gurganus is absolutely right to remark that taking Jesus and God out of Moral Monday protests would be a very good idea, and not just because religiosity and its vague dependence on emotion and un-fact got us into this awful mess to begin with, either, though surely that is an irony that he is wise to note. The religious tone to these protests becomes a water in which the non-religious like me do not want to swim. I, for one, am not interested in martyrdom; I prefer to see some good old intellect applied to the problems that face us, the first of those problems being that we voters have turned over our North Carolina State government to a bunch of sideshow barkers who are quite shamelessly in favor of turning our beautiful state over to business concerns for systematic rape and pillage. How about calling them Mindful Mondays instead?

Good article.
