Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 67: March 23, 1905
One death grapple in the darkness 'twixt old systems and the world; Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne, Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown, Standeth God within the shadow keeping watch above His own.
Our debt of gratitude can only be paid by contributing our mite to the cause which the few of the past have lived, suffered, and died for, namely, mental liberty for all mankind.
The Pilgrim fathers who sacrificed all to attain their own liberty did well, but no sooner had they attained it? Than they began to enslave others. This condition of the human mind seems to perpetuate itself. Nineteen hundred years of Christian teaching seems to have eradicated but very little of this devilish sin of thoughtless public clamor.
