Excerpt from Idols by the Sea: And Other Sermons
They succeeded very well: they filled the earth with cries and curses, with bloodshed and maledictions. This wholesale homicide they called war. It was murder, to be sure, just like any other murder, but the word war seemed to this family to mention something justifiable. Even in time of peace the members of this family were in constant discord. Face to face they spoke sweetly enough, but each behind the other's back they lied and Slandered without mercy. Dis honesty, profanity, impunity, and injustice reigned supreme; brother strove against brother, while father hated both son and daughter. Outwardly, full often, all looked white and pure, but inwardly it was full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness.
