A Conservative Theology Becoming a Revolutionary Idea by Attracting the Non-Urban and Marginalized: A Quiz

Quick quiz about the following quote:

Here was a fascinating paradox: that an essentially conservative theology, looking backward with affection toward a vanishing culture, became a revolutionary idea, because the people whom it attracted most strongly were those who had been marginalized by urbanization—the disaffected poor, the street mob.

Who said it about whom? Was it:

  • A: Andrew Sullivan on the Tea-Party-wing of the GOP
  • B: Gore Vidal on the '64 Goldwater campaign
  • C: Salman Rushdie on the birth of Islam

Answer in the comments section.
