only right herself as she has done in the South
, but her voice should be heard in the pulpit enforcing right principles
, as well as right duties, upon this subject.
Truth is at all times intolerant of any abuse.
Her voice should certainly be heard under circumstances so urgent as the present.
It is due to many in Southern communities whose minds are, more or less, disturbed by the long-continued abuse of the pulpit, and the social influence of mistaken ministers of religion in private life.
It is due to the interests of our common country.
We have lost much already in suppressing the truth.
We have much to gain by boldly asserting her claims — for “truth is great, and will prevail!”
Truth crushed to earth will rise again:
The eternal years of God are hers;
But Error, wounded, writhes in pain,
And dies amid her worshippers.
