Re: TOS: The Weight of Worlds by Greg Cox Review Thread (Spoilers!)

^Well, the rebels within the alien society, the ones fighting against the Crusade, were themselves religious; they just disagreed with the interpretation of their faith that required forcibly converting or destroying everything that didn't fit the strict letter of its teachings. So it wasn't against religion, just against militant fundamentalism and extremism, against corrupting religion into an excuse to persecute and wage war.
