The Ark & the Covenant

Anthropologist Christa Tooley and I write wrote this together at the Washington Post today after visiting the Museum of the Bible. The upshot:
Current analyses of American culture still tend to lump the distinct fundamentalist and evangelical streams of American Christianity into the obfuscating category of “Evangelical.” But conveniently enough, these two spirits have now manifested themselves in separate museums hundreds of miles apart in every sense, sparing any further excuse for this easy conflation.
Surely all such sloppy generalizations will now come to a screeching halt.

On another note entirely, happy Fat Thursday to all!
