Freethinkers Book Club

American Crusade: How the Supreme Court is Weaponizing Religious Freedom

By Andrew Seidel

Wednesday, February 15, 2023, 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Hosted by: Karen C.

Link to Karen's Summary: 


As a follow up to The Founding Myth, Andrew Seidel's most recent book, American Crusade, provides a well written and researched account of how Christian zealots are using the right of religious freedom to transition the U.S. towards a nation of Christian supremacy.

By analyzing key Supreme Court cases over the last thirty years, Seidel shows how these cases are being decided over the principles of the founders. With decades of precedent being dismantled along with the wall separating church and state, this is an important read to help understand our political and cultural landscape.

We hope you will join our discussion -- even if you are unable to find time to read the book. Additional resources are below, including YouTube videos, podcast, and additional books by Andrew Seidel and Justice Stephen Breyers.
