Michael Alexander. The Children’s Crusade. (Fantasy & Science Fiction, May/June 2012)

A rural setting, post-something or other, with fragmented religions, and some dark elements to that religion. Young Will meets a stranger who visits the village in which he lives, and we find out more about the community, their beliefs, and the central conceit behind the story is unveiled, explaining why the community is as it is. Excellent.
