I amd writing a paper over how mark twain uses satire to criticize religion. My opening statement is: Helping a slave runaway and floating down the Mississippi river accompanied by two conmen appears to be the basis of a real adventure tale. My teacher has asked me to incorperate religion into this scentence by using a verb after Helping a slave runaway VERB... Im really confused and does anyone have any ideas?
