Back in the old days, political activity hostile to a religion–Catholicism mostly–took place in the darker corners of the public square, under names that said as much, like Know-Nothingism and “underground” and “whispering” campaigns. Now they take place in space accessible to anyone with keys to click and eyes to see.
