    One proof immediately leaping to my pagan mind is that word I use to define myself as a practitioner of a non-Abrahamic religion.  It's from the latin word for "villager" or "rustic".... or in modern terms, "rural hick." Because it was those hillbilly farmers who clung to their old pagan ways and weren't up with the fashionable new Christianity.

    But just like Y. pestis in the 14th century, I think that most social justice and equality memes will spread to all the rural areas. Eventually.

    I try to be a vector in my red county as much as I can. (grin)

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
