Jervey, Edward D. "Henry L. Mencken and American Methodism." Journal of Popular Culture 12 (Summer 1978): 75-87.
Annotation / Notes: Jervey chronicles H. L. Mencken's well-known antagonism toward organized religion, especially harsh in his writing of the 1920s. The article focuses especially upon Mencken's tendency to single out the Methodists, whom he viewed as representing the dominant social and cultural values of mainstream and conservative Protestantism. He argues that Protestant support for Prohibition and opposition to new, scientific knowledge, as evidenced by the conflict over the theory of evolution, served as touchstones for Mencken's satire and scorn.
