Episode Summary

Faith, and the powers behind it, have shaped our states ever since the Pilgrims first landed at Plymouth Rock. Religious conflict helped form the borders of New England and limit the size of Utah. And even today, religious allegiances are rewriting our political borders as the struggle over "red" and "blue" states intensifies, "gerrymandering" us into separate groups and sections - essentially forming new "borders".
