"From the book of Obadiah," Reverend Bolick said, and began reading. "The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the cleft of the rock, whose habitation is high, that saith in his heart, who shall bring me down."
Harris smiled. "I believe the right reverend is addressing us." (17.48-49)
He's a clever one, that Reverend. He knows how to use his sermons to make a dig at Pemberton and Harris. Can you blame him? They are disrupting his service, and they never attend. Yet it also shows us how snarky and righteous some religious practices can be.
