Words changed to disguise the original topic:

"As the ___ communities became established, they sometimes faced opposition from ...s and ---s who [see] this new ideology as a threat and suspected its adherents of engaging in immoral and socially destructive practices . . . . This opposition sometimes led to local [ostracism] of ___s . . . . As ___ grew, it eventually converted intellectuals to the ideology, who were well equipped to discuss and dismiss the charges typically raised against the ___s. The writings of these intellectuals are . . . . intellectual defences of the new ideology, trying to show that far from being a threat to the social structure of the ~~~, __ preached moral behavior; and far from being a dangerous superstition, it represented the [epistemic] truth in its [rejection of religious claims]. These [books] are important for ___ readers, as they provided them with the arguments they needed when themselves faced with [ostracism]."
It's probably not difficult to guess what ___, ..., ---, ~~~ could represent on a blog such as this.

It might not be too difficult to figure out what the original text says. I was particularly amused by, "a threat and suspected its adherents of engaging in immoral and socially destructive practices ".
