WHY DO CONSERVATIVES HATE CITIES?

Or fear them? Or think they’re more sinful than suburbs and rural areas? And why do newsmedia follow their lead??! This is a review of a book that attempts to say.

In truth, I ran into this during a few years I spent with a largely rural Protestant denomination, some of whose members often respond when you introduce yourself and say you’re from a city, “Right in the city?” like they presume you couldn’t possibly. Is it just innocent fear of the unfamiliar? Or something worse?

Don’t they read their Revelation? The New Jerusalem come down from Heaven isn’t gonna be a farm, a small town, or a suburb, but a bright shiny CITY!
