in consequence of the missive, Mary's attitude to Religion., penned by Rachel G
Thank you for your well-thought-out post. When I think of Mary, I do look at it a little bit from Edmund's sympathetic POV where he believes to begin with that Mary has just had bad examples that have jaded her view. A prime example that Mary has for clergy is Mr. Grant, who she has been personally critical of. I think her general criticism of clergy stems directly from his example, particularly her description in Ch. 11. I felt that this perhaps perfectly expresses her opinion of Mr. Grant:
I also have felt that it is telling that Mary really is rather thoughtless about a greater sense of things, and backs up your assessment of her contempt or indifference to religion as well.
