The subject of this discussion enlists the feelings of every patriot. It involves not only the deepest interests of our holy religion, but the very existence of our liberties, and the perpetuity of our Republic.We come not before you to oppose the Roman catholic religion, merely as a religion We have a higher, and we trust, a holier aim.

Having detected in it, a lurking enemy, conspiring against religion, and the essential interests of our country, we have dragged it forward into the light- and have brought it up to Your tribunal, for public judgment in the case.In our pleadings at your bar, we shall demonstrate that the Roman catholic religion is not found in the Holy Bible- that it has diverged far, in its erratic course, from primitive and pure Christianity- that it stands now separated from it by a gulph, wide as that which separates the prophet of Arabias Koran from the holy Scriptures of God: and that, as an ancient religion, it is, in fact, the perpetuation of Greek and Roman paganism, - baptised under a new nomenclature.But, we shall not rest satisfied with proving each of these positions.

Important as is their truth to the christian community, they cannot, as such, claim national attention. But there is a point in this controversy which does claim your attention, as a nation. For, while pure apostolical Christianity, like its Lord, has not its kingdom of this world: while it shrinks from the unhallowed union with the state- and seeks no political aggrandisement, no civil establishment- no worldly power, or earthly grandeur- while it neither aims at making a tool of statesmen, and politics, nor permits its ministry and sacred things to become the willing tool of a carnal policy- the Roman catholic system is, in all points, the reverse of this.It is, as we shall see from its creed, and from historical documents, a system of mere human policy- altogether of a foreign origin- foreign in its support- and bringing with it, over the face of society, wholly a hostile foreign influence.

Its pope and priests are politicians, men of the world, and mere men of pleasure.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
