"controlling their cultural memory" – Rod Dreher and Al Mohler

This whole discussion is fascinating; the specific comment in the headline is at 12:00. Mohler is president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. According to his Wikipedia page, Dreher was raised Methodist, became Catholic, and then later Eastern Orthodox. The remark Dreher makes at 34min – "maintaining historical cultural memory as a means of resistance" – demands a lot of thought, in many contexts. In light of which, Andrew T Walker's forthcoming book is timely.
