American Crusade

Andrew is an author and attorney who’s defended the First Amendment for more than a decade, both in and out of court.

Andrew dedicated his career to challenging religious privilege and battling Christian Nationalism.

He speaks and writes extensively about religious freedom; and has been profiled by BBC News, Buzzfeed, International Business Times, and more.

Is a fight against equality and for privilege a fight for religious supremacy? A constitutional attorney dives into the debate on religious liberty, the modern attempt to weaponize religious freedom, and the Supreme Court’s role in that “crusade.”

Critically acclaimed author and constitutional attorney Andrew L. Seidel looks at some of the key Supreme Court cases of the last thirty years.

ANDREW L. SEIDEL

Andrew L. Seidel
Andrew L. Seidel is a constitutional and civil rights attorney, activist, and former Grand Canyon tour guide. He has a B.S. in neuroscience and a few law degrees, each with academic honors and awards. His first book, The Founding Myth: Why Christian Nationalism is Un-American, ended the debate about whether America was founded as a Christian nation or not. As Andrew likes to say
“America will never be a Christian nation because the moment it becomes a Christian nation it will cease to be America.”
Andrew has appeared on outlets from MSNBC to Fox News and his writing has been widely featured in popular and scholarly journals. When he’s not fighting Christian Nationalism as one of the country’s leading experts on the subject, he is probably writing or speaking about American history, the Constitution, religion, the law, his books, religious freedom, and why America needs national recommitment to the separation of church and state

Was America founded as a Christian Nation?

No, and The Founding Myth ends this debate for good. 

With more than 1,000 5-star reviews on Amazon, the critically acclaimed Founding Myth marshals the best arguments against the historical disinformation of Christian Nationalism and backs those arguments up with a feast of well-cited historical fact. America will never be a Christian Nation because the moment it becomes a Christian nation, it will cease to be America. 

The Christian Nationalist identity is incredibly weak and vulnerable because it is based on historical distortions and lies. But we need more than facts to fight back, we need better arguments. The Founding Myth gives you new, better arguments. It’s not simply a refutation of the idea that we’re a Christian nation. It goes deeper and gives you the tools to help destroy this un-American political ideology.
