“Secularism owes this duty to itself, that it educate its children in the
bottom facts of truth, and not leave them exposed to the deceitful allurements
of well-masked falsehood.
When I see the money that is spent in dotting our cities, towns, villages, and farm
lands with church spires, and church colleges, and church institutions of all kinds and then compare the spectacle with the few, the very, very few, Free-thought institutions, I am forced to believe that a little hell fire doctrine is a pretty good thing to burn holes through pockets.” - Voltairine de Cleyre
