While the focus is historic Mormons and modern day Fundamentalists, this book helps show the way men use religion to control and act out their need to control. Could just as easily be the Middle East where honor killings take place. Could see how practicing Mormons could be offended. Seems a balanced fair look at links between nutty splinter groups and mainstream LDS. Yep I'm a non-Mormon.
Moore critics will attack Moore for Moore's sake but soldier's voices count.
This book confirms the use of religion to cover some of the darker aspecrts of basic human nature. Like Fundamentalist Christianity, Fundamentalist Islam is used to promote and support self interests and biases of one group over another. Islam was used to justify invasion and domination just like the medieval Crusades and later invasions. This work addresses this without burying us completely in Western bias on the topic. Very edifying.
