I am not going to discuss the validity of the content of the referred book.
What worries me is that religion is now mixing into /interfering with politics and decision making at the highest level. I remember (but not very sure) that the US president once said he sent US troops to invade other countries because God told him to do that. I really hope I have mistaken. Otherwise, what is the difference between USA and an Islamic-extremist-governed country?
Religious wars kill people. Unlike couple of centuries ago, the weapon today are more dangerous.
Sound, evidence-based education is the only tool to fight against this. Teachers, again, are at the front line.
May reason and common sense bless America!
