Summary: The author argues against the belief that religion is universal to all human cultures and eras, discussing how Western cultures distinguish a difference between what is secular and what is religion, and examining how the West uses the idea of religious violence as a justification for peacekeeping, whereas religious violence from other social orders is often considered fanatical.
