Prussia, The Religious Right, and You.
There were, naturally, repeated attempts to conquer and convert the Prussians into Christianity, particularly following the alleged murder St. Adalbert at the hands of a Prussian spiritual leader. The exact records on this, like most records from the 8th century, are spotty.
Prussia was eventually conquered by the Teutonic Knights during the Prussian Crusade in the 13th century. Fast forward through centuries of religious and economic upheaval, and eventually, the Prussian region is divvied up between Poland and the Soviet Union.
Today: There is no Prussia.
So, what was all the fighting about? Well, in the case of the Prussians, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t for the adoption protestantism as an official state religion for the very first time, but that’s what we ended up with.
If you can’t see how this is connected to what’s going on in Wisconsin, (and the rest of the United States), you’re not trying hard enough.
