_Orthodoxy_ reads like a scathing attack on most non-catholic philosophy. I've met few priests as sage as Father Brown and none so outspoken. _The man who was thursday_ seems to unrelentingly mock socialists. Jerry can see the wit in it even if finding it silly, but Jerry is far away from being the gen.pub.

That's one of the bits that will appeal to a 'paleoconservative'.
