Is the Christianity Is Catholic aversion actually alluded to in the actual work? Because if not, it's not actually important to describe the story and therefore why is it listed, other than to add an observation someone has made about Lydia's possible fate were it set in another country?

The fact the story is set in late 18th/early 19th-century England makes it par for the course that the Christianity of the setting will not be Catholic, as England was a firmly Protestant country at the time. I mean, we have Mr. Collins, a clergyman, seeking and later taking a wife, which Catholic priests (in the West) do not do.

Re: Elizabeth's Silly Rabbit, Cynicism Is for Losers! entry, I have some serious doubts about that.

After all, a person who would actually believe Wickham's comments about Darcy just HAS to be utterly naive.
