That Tommy Kidd is a real pistol.

It is nothing new for Hart to assign ills to the modern evangelical movement, which Whitefield substantially pioneered.

Hilarious. And not to say anything about Dr. Hart himself, but it does bring to mind this crabby quote:

“They are chiefly, indeed, young persons, sometimes lads, or rather
boys; nay, women and girls, yea, Negroes, have taken upon them to do
the business of preachers.”
—Charles Chauncey on the Great Awakening ~1740 CE
