RELIGION IN NEED
Might as Well Try t? Defend
Sun for Bestowing Its Bril
NOW IS BEST TIME OT ALL
By A. R. GROH.
A man sends me a pamphlet of
which he is the author and asks for
my opinion of it.
His pamphlet is a "knock on re
ligion or all kinds, lie declares all
the creeds are wrong, that priests and
preachers are worse than useless and
that "the masses" have been made
poor to build churches, cathedrals
and other places of worship.
I am afraid, sir, that you are in a
very poor business. Your arguments
are founded upon tne crassest igno
rance and builded with suspicions,
jealousy and sourness.
Your principal objection to all
religions seems to be thaf they cost
money. You might extend the same
objection to the schools. They cost
You intimate that clergymen draw
big salaries and live in luxury and
idleness. Your ienorance on this, as
on the rest of the subject is so glar
ing as to be amusing.
If you knew anything at all about
it, you would know that preachers
and priests get smaller pay than any
other professional men. The average
salary of a clergyman in the United
States is less than $600 a year. Thou
sands of them get only $300 or $400.
And these are men who have spent
years and -money in preparing for
their calling. They could earn more
of this world's goods as teachers or
merchants or doctors or in the trades.
Even if we would grant that Chris
tianity has no divine foundation, the
argument would still be' all in its
favor. Modern civilization, by : 11
odds the most enlightened in the
world's history, is admitted to be due
to the Christian religion. The world's
brightest men and women in this, the
world's most brilliant age, are Chris
tians. Christianity has raised the
poor to a plane of freedom and com
fort never before known in the
world. It has liberated women. It
has freed the black race.
No Need for Defense.
Defending the church is really as
unnecessary as defending the sun for
The church, all its denominations
working together, has brought the
world to its present enlightenment.
Hundreds of millions have lived hap
pily and died peacefully and hope
fully in the Christian religion before
you came on eartfr with your great
wisdom to point out that it and all
other religions are wrong. Rather
odd, isn't it?
And what do vou offer in place of
the religion you would snatch away?
Nothing. Nothing to sustain the ltv
ing through the troubles of life. Noth
ing to give hope and joy to the dying,
Moreover, it is written, "By their
fruits ye shall know them." What
good works are men of your belief do
ing in the world? Have you built anv
hospitals? All the Christian denomina
tions have hosnita s where self-sacn-
ficingr sisters and nurses minister to
the sick by day and by night. Where
are your orphan asylums located? Do
yon conduct any homes for the aged?
Or do you just rail at those who
are doing good and trying to make
the world the best possible place to
Of course, you have a right to your
opinions. You are quite welcome to
them. You'll find very few people
that want them.
