The character named Dad in The Mansion speculates that "the rest of the folks in the neighborhood" of Goodyhay's unconventional church won't "put up with no such as this" (300). He assumes they will object to Goodyhay's congregation of ex-soldiers and their families as "a passel of free-loading government-subsidised ex-drafted sons of bitches" who want to do "something" politically radical about the American status quo (300). Dad is not particularly reliable as a character, but later the man who had given Goodhay permission to build a church on his land "changes his mind" (303).
