Nice plug for Orthodoxy at the end... almost as if she's saying "Well, the Orthodox are quaint (like the Quakers) for not adopting modern changes (like pews)...  Eh, I'm being overly sensitive.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
