Excerpt from Little Children in the Church of Christ
This was Greece in her loftiest civilization. \vhen we go to the Brahmanism of India, what horrors of infanticide in the name of religion meet us. Rachel weeps at Bethlehem, but the gods steel the hearts Of Hindu mothers. The sacred Ganges has buried more children than all the cemeteries of America. The Old Testa ment makes us familiar with Moloch, that hor rible idol into whose iron arms, made red-hot, little children were laid in sacrifice, while deaf euing drums drowned their pitiful cries. Girl babies in all heathen lands, how unfortunate! Unwelcome when they come, if not murdered at birth, how rough and thorny their way!
Who does not praise God for the teachings of Christ concerning children 3 But let us beware4 shall WE have A religious meeting?
