Duluth, Minnesota (OpEdNews) April 23, 2014: The classic book about the theocons is Damon Linker's The Theocons: Secular America Under Siege (2006).
However, in the hope of rallying theocons to turn out the vote for Republican candidates in the upcoming 2014 mid-term elections, and perhaps also in the 2016 elections, Joseph Bottum, a former editor of the paleo-conservative Catholic magazine First Things, has published a new book: An Anxious Age: The Post-Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of America (2014). His title is designed to call to mind Max Weber's The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.
CONTEXTUALIZING JOSEPH BOTTUM
Basically, there are two kinds of practicing Roman Catholics in the United States today:
(1) the paleo-conservative Catholics and
(2) the non-paleo-conservative Catholics.
The paleo-conservative Catholics tend to read the magazines First Things and the National Review.
