Crusade: The Unchecked and Unbalanced Role of Faith in America is a trek through the stranglehold of ancient myths in modern culture, namely in the United States. Our senate argues against climate change related legislation by quoting bible verses; our women have to be afraid when entering clinics, in case there's someone nearby with a bomb or a gun; our leaders must claim religious affiliation to avoid gunfire; minorities must live as second class citizens; slavery, racism, bigotry; the list continues. These are the fruits of religion, so why do we still tolerate it? Well, because a great man named Thomas Jefferson once gave the US its religious freedom. The problem is that this religious freedom is only available to the majority faiths, and even they are at war with one another. Can something as divisive as this be good for anybody? My answer is no!
