This chapter argues that A.J. Tomlinson cultivated animosity while in Culberson. This process had at least three dimensions. First, Tomlinson’s manner embodied the antistructural iconoclasm that raised hackles wherever holiness was found. Second, Tomlinson made room for himself by prying his target community’s preexisting fault lines. Third, his mission bore the crusading flag of the Yankee cultural imperialism, and its every benevolent act came shrouded in an aura of condescension.
