Generalizing Away

“When I say this sort of thing — that the North had drifted into theologically liberal goo thought and the South was orthodox and Christian — I know I am painting with a broad brush. I know it is a generalization. Even today, if I were to refer to the ‘Bible belt,’ I would not consider myself refuted if someone went hunting and triumphantly found seven atheistic freethinkers in Shreveport. But as generalizations go, it is still quite fair” (Black and Tan, pp. 107-108).
