    CHAPTER IV. THE RELIGIOUS ATTACK UPON THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, AND THOSE WHO ARE MAKING IT

    THE principles set forth in the three preceding chapters are the genuine principles of Jesus Christ. The Unites States Constitution as it is, with its total separation of religion and the State, is in perfect harmony with these principles. It is evident, therefore that any attempt to introduce into our national Constitution any religion, even though it be, professedly, the Christian religion, would be subversive of the principles of Christ. Any such attempt would be anti-Christian, and would be fraught with the greatest danger that could threaten the liberties of men, and with the worst evils that could befall a nation. Such an attempt is not only being made, but is so far advanced as to make this a subject of the very first importance to every lover of Christianity or human rights.CGRAS 43.1
