Happy, Constructive Warriors Needed

Brian Phillips points us to Gregory Wolfe, who has purposely dropped out of the culture wars.

Wolfe captures my take quite nicely.

"My objection to the culture wars does not mean that I have no principles or refuse to stand up for them: I have strong opinions on most of these conflicts, and am willing to give voice to them when appropriate. What bothers me is the manner in which these wars are conducted."

Phillips, reviewing Wolfe's book "Beauty Will Save the World": "The culture wars in which conservatives were firmly entrenched had become a kind of total warfare, resulting in a conservatism that conserved little and created less."
