Much of that scrutiny will be unfair. Some will be infuriating.
Skimming through newspapers and magazines over the past few days, I've seen the membership of the church described as "anti-Christs," "heretics," "cultists," "freaks," "fanatics" and (the cleverness and originality of this hardy Internet perennial never fail) "morons." So much for the peculiar subculture of online comments sections. But more articulate (elitist) scorn has also been on abundant display.
