The Respectable Colonials

Last night's episodes of Colonial House were fun. The departure of the Wyers was not as contentious as I had expected. Building a new home in order to relieve the housing pressures appears now to have delayed the economic progress of the colony, but that point was not emphasized. (BTW, has anyone discovered the circumstances of the accident in Temple, Texas?)

I like the new "Cape Merchant". However, Jack Lecza appears to be less a participant than an actor on the show.

The conditions with to faith are finally resembling the times. Wyers' attendance taking was excessive. But there were limits to how much a family could remain absent from church. The Vorhees took the modern approach to spirituality too far. The seventeenth century had its men and women who had little faith, but they never severed their ties with religion--especially if they hoped to ascend the social ranks and obtain political power (note Spinoza).

I agree - last night was by far the closest to real religious politics that the show has come. There were many people in these colonies who were not ardent Christians, but they attended Sabbath and would not be allowed to hold political posts. All the Vorhees had to do was step down (as he did) - no need for the hissy fit.

Thinking about how individuals had to negotiate with existing institutions, I am reminded by campaign experiences in NH. I met a number of people--mostly students in political science--who worked for Democratic presidential candidates but who maintained voting registration in the Republican Party because they sought employment and internships with the Department of Defense. Is it a betrayal of one's beliefs or "collaboration"? Perhaps not.
