In the year 1906 the

Pennsylvania, rejected the

membership on the ground

that one of his profession could not be a moral per-

Viewing the action as a slur cast on the whole Mr. Henry E. Dixey, the wellknown actor, offered to give one thousand dollars to charity if it could be shown that actors, man for man, were not as good as ministers of the gospel.

The

reply,

couched in the

language of an editorial article in "The Truth Seeker,"


as follows:

"Christianity, as interpreted by its preachers, affirms a fundamental relation between belief and morals. It claims that its system of morals is revealed and perfect; and not only this, but also that good morals are out of the question unless we believe in the Christian religion. "There are Christian ministers, and they are of the class who have the widest hearing, because they are 'sensational' ones, who will tell you that unbelief is synonymous with immorality; that men are wicked because they are Infidels, and are Infidels because they are wicked. They argue that as religion cannot countenance anything that is wrong, the wrongdoer must justify his course by denying the authority of religion, and hence becomes an unbeliever in order that his has not creed may not conflict with his conduct. heard that Infidels deny the existence of hell to relieve their minds of the uncertainty of going there when they die that they put the Bible aside because it will not permit their indulgences in sin, and that a reform in conduct will be accompanied by a renunciation of their Infidelity and a reacceptance of religion and the

"The preachers who promulgate these principles often proceed from the general to the particular. Having asserted the correlation of unbelief with moral turpitude, they give pretended illustrative instances, and they do not seem to understand that the force of their argument is lessened by tlie fact that they are obhged to invent cases and to deal with imaginary characters. Some, of course, prefer to libel known and representative Freethinkers instead of exercising

the faculty of invention and defaming unbelievers who are pure myths.

understand it. "People have been taught so long that piety and
morality are interchangeable terms, that they believe it without regard to the facts which demonstrate the contrary to be true. When an individual of reputed orthodoxy violates the moral law they accuse him of being a hypocrite and set his religious professions down as mere outward pretense. But here their mental narrowness is shown, for the immoral person may be thoroughly sincere. The more firmly he believes, the stronger may be his confidence that no mere human weakness on his part can deprive him of the benefits of his religion. For according to the code we are all sinners, and the function of religion is not so much to keep us from personal sin as to save us from its natural consequences. One has fallen already in Adam and is therefore totally depraved, which is the limit How, then, can his own sins count of depravity. against him, when he cannot be depraved beyond 'toHis concern is to escape the consequences of tally'? the fall, which is accomphshed by accepting the Christian scheme of salvation.

If one answers the question mathematically, no; if one answers the question in the Hght of our moral standards for ministers of the gospel, the negative answer will not be so readily and decidedly given. There are few issues of the daily newspaper without at least a single item narrating the fall of a clergyman. It would be

nalistic annals of crime or even in personal knowledge of gross faults on the part of clergymen. It would be folly to deny that, taken as a class, ministers live lives as pure and as free from criminal or grossly immoral taint as any other class of persons. The indictment takes rather the form of a general impression, amounting almost to a conviction, that the minister does not have the clear-cut and high standards which the business world demands. "Business men feel that there is something about the 'cloth' that makes its wearer a ^doubtful proposition' when it comes to square dealing between men. prominent lawyer in Chicago said, only the other day, *I dread seeing a clergyman enter my office ; I do not want his business he does not have the commerHe went on to give cial honor of the man of affairs.' instances of ministers who disregarded their business obligations and even ignored the sanctity of the oath at the bar of justice.

"It is a well-known fact among houses accustomed to extend credit that ministers are the slowest to pay, and the most difficult from whom to collect. In the smaller towns it would be difficult to find a grocer without an uncollected account against some minister who had left the place. Over five years ago such a preacher boasted in his farewell sermon that all his bills were paid in the village, and he 'owed not any man'; he should have said that he had paid not any man, and some of his bills are still unpaid.

"A charitable organization in Chicago allowed a minister in a village nearby to become indebted to it.

sured that payment would be made at once. The books were sent, but the cash never was forthcoming, and after a lengthy correspondence, in which many excuses were offered, the professor had to count his loss as the price he had paid for a lesson in trusting the

The

back of it, with the many other instances of which these few are but slightly indicative, have produced the decided opinion in the business world that the minister is unreliable, and that the ministry does not stand of necessity for admirable manliness. "There are many exceptions. The manly, foursquare ministers are the more noticeable because they
are exceptional. There are still more ministers who are warmly admired by their congregations, but they are admired rather for professional traits and pulpit graces than for the rugged virtues that count on the street and in the store and office. On the whole, men of honor feel that today it is no honor to be entitled 'Reverend' ; the average man looks somewhat askance at the clergyman.
this is nowhere better illustrated than minister leaves his profession and desires to enter business. He finds there a strong prejudice against his past; it is regarded as unfitting him for work. When such a man goes into an office, experience shows that he is likely to lack the qualities that make for trustworthiness in details in the individual and for harmony in a large force of employes. "Now, if the business of the minister is to teach the people how to live, he ought at least to know how to do it himself. His principles are valueless if they will not stand the wear of daily life. Is the trouble with the teachings, with the message, or is it with the man himself? "The first reason ministers go wrong is because they are men. They are not angels they are not the reincarnated ideal saints that the sisters and the sisterly

brethren like to think they are. Because they are men they have human fraihies. But, while that does account for the fact that ministers steal and break the express commandments the same as other men, it does not account for the fact that they are held below par in commercial esteem. *'As a profession the ministry seems to offer a premium on the pretender, the impostor, the hypocrite. So long as there are the intentional pretenders and the unconscious hypocrites in the church they will enjoy the ministry of the pretender and hypocrite. So long as the churches say, 'There's nothing either good or ill but seeming makes it so,^ the man who can succeed in fooling the people with appearances of virtues, with saintly air and pious phrase will be the man who reaches the top of his profession. "Then no mortal being can stand for long the fawning and adulation which the preacher is likely to receive, especially from foolish and emotional women. He is sure to come to believe that he is a superior being, one who either can do no wrong or can do only right. Steady feeding on flattery unfits him for sound counsel regarding his shortcomings; he gets into the habit of judging his own actions, not by any undeviating principles, but by the measure of praise they receive.

"There are peculiar temptations incident to the work of any man who appears to weak minds as a demi-god on occasions, whose work makes unusual demands on his nerve forces, and who is obliged to work almost exclusively with women. There is not only the temptation to license in personal virtue coupled with opportunity in pastoral visitation; there is the tendency to conformity to feminine standards, so that the man becomes womanly and usually a poor kind of an old

not reach and do. It is the expression of the phrases of character, not necessarily accompanied with their expression in Hving and doing. It results in the mental habit of considering a duty done as soon as it is declared. It exhausts the moral impetus in phrases. It makes the man act the He. "Intellectual dishonesty results from habitual standing as a special pleader; as the defender of ground which has not been honestly, candidly examined. The preacher seldom goes back to the evidence; he argues from the conclusions of others. He stands as an authority in that in which he frequently has made no original, unprejudicial examination. "Intellectual dishonesty comes as a result of cowardice in regard to the declaration of his own honest convictions. He is perhaps unconsciously persuaded to teach what the church teaches rather than what he would teach if he gave himself a chance to think. Creeds may be small matters, after all, but the teaching of a creed in which we do not believe is no small matter in its effects on the teacher. There are many potent reasons for fearing a heresy trial often the thought of his children's hungry mouths and bare backs is one reason. It is a good deal easier to admire the men who went to the stake for a conviction than it is to follow them. The truth is, no minister who is honest with himself and who declares what he fully believes will have any reason to fear. The church may cast him out, but he will find a thousand voices and hearts to echo to any honest truth in his own. "Often the preacher is so dead sure that his motive is right, that he does not stop to examine sufficiently his method. He wants to save souls, and if he can do it, as it seems to him, by crooked means more quickly than by straight ones, then he takes the crooked way. He wants to build a church if he can build it quicker by misrepresentation, by double dealing, by beating any one, he thinks only of the church, and that overweighs any other consideration.

14

CRIMES OF PREACHERS.

"Take the matter of ministers (and others, too) have lying in the stories and illustrations they tell. all heard preachers tell as happening to them some incident which we read when we were boys; perhaps before they were born. The man is so carried away with desire to impress the truth on you that he consents to lie to make the illustration more personal and forceful. That makes it none the less a lie; but after he has told it that way a few times, he forgets that it is a lie. "One of the principal reasons for the disrespect in which the preacher is often regarded by the business world lies in the shamefully unbusinesslike manner in which the preacher has been treated in regard to compensation for his work. If his work is worthless, why not say so and tell him to get out, and do something worth while? If it is worth doing, then he ought to be paid sufficient for a living without being compelled to become a cadger and a pauper. 'The old donation party may have had a good beginning, but it has had a bad effect on the minister's character. Add to the moral results of being compelled to digest frozen potatoes, wooden turnips and other donation specimens, the experience of being forced into the attitude, at least annually, of a beggar, and one will begin to appreciate the difficulty the preacher

ting the devil over the back if you are feeding his belly/ "The preacher in the country and in the old days could get along very well between the neighborly gifts he received and the produce of his little farm or garden when these were added to his small salary. But when, without increase of salary, that same man is placed in the city in our days of swollen prices for necessities, he is hard put to it to keep out of debt and remain honest in the ministry. Under the pressure some men have turned to crooked schemes, to selling mining stocks and other bogus investments, and some have gone out of the ministry. But the greater number have stayed in and are working hard to make ends meet and to stay straight.

"Ministers have gone wrong because they have not been trained right in their professional schools; they have been educated only for oratorical labor, and that with the intent of persuading men to certain things by dint of their eloquence. What seminaries are giving courses corresponding to those in other professional schools on professional ethics ? They have gone wrong in instances because their employers, the people, have not treated them right, have not given them a fair chance to live right they have paid them, and are paying them less than we pay mechanics and clerks, and yet they expect the minister to live according to their
;

social standards.

"When the people who employ the ministers will give them an honest return for their work, when they will also encourage them to be honest in thdr preaching and teaching, there will be fewer unworthy ministers. When the theological schools get out of their shells and into the cities, and the preachers get out of their cloth and among folk, when they take off their garments of sanctimoniousness and get busy helping and leading others to better living, and to making this world a better place to live in, the ministers will be a good many notches higher in the world's esteem.

needless to say there are a great many ministers who have made good in these ways." We have thus a view of the clerical profession from the inside, the writer having turned state's evidence. In the closing paragraph there is an intimation that liberal preaching, or "honest" preaching, with a dis-

With such a multiplication of pulpiteers and a low standard of qualification for the ministry, the bad preeminence of the Methodist parsons is explained. It has been noticed already that priests are not publicly exposed in such peccadilloes as might cost a Protestant minister his pulpit or a layman his standing in the community.

"The fact that two of the ministers who attended the late Methodist conference in Indianapolis committed the statutory offense before they went home led Pastor Dinsmore of the Baptist church of Anderson, Ind., to which state one of the delinquents belonged, to deliver a discourse on the theme, 'How Preachers Go Wrong.' Viewing the matter historically, as was his duty, the Rev. Mr. Dinsmore found that the going wrong of a preacher is by no means a modern innovation ; for did not Micah, David, Eli, and Abiathar prove false to the trust imposed in them? The preacher blamed society for protecting the preacher in his sin, and for not giving him away. But the first cause, he says, why a preacher falls is that he is 'human,' and the devil works for mastery over him as over other souls. And the second cause of the preacher's fall, we arc told, is the woman (nothing The religious said about her being also 'human').

J. T.

No young girl is safe in the power or presence of that kind of degenerates; and hence when one of them gets into the clutches of the law he should be kept there as long as the statute will permit.

the percentage of criminal preachers above the aver-

age of all Chicago citizens. In six months of the same year (1912) Kokomo, Indiana, had four clerical scandals.

again quote:

Alley, pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal church at Royal Center and an active member in the North Indiana conference, was arrested at a boarding house at Kokomo shortly before midnight Tuesday night in company with Mrs. Wendling, a widow of Walton, and both were hustled off to jail where they still remain,' the Hartford City (Ind.) 'Times-Gazette' of August 6 remarks 'This is the fourth scandal in Kokomo within the past six months in which a preacher has been involved.' Surely there must be something unfavorable to ministerial morals in the Kokomo atmosphere some such element as that affirmed by one of the infallible popes who, finding himself and many of his priests disabled by a mysterious malady, laid it to 'a certain malignity in the constitution of the air.' The constitution of the air in Kokomo, Indiana, is obviously malign and contraindicated for ministers."

t^arts, "The Fathers of the Repuband ''The Saviors of Our Republic." In regard to Paine's religious views, Mr. Remsburg establishes the negative of

following: (i) Was Paine an Atheist? Was he a (2) Christian? (3) Did he recant? Page after page of the most radical Freethought sentiments are culled from the correspondence and other writings of Franklin and JefTerson, which show that these men were as pronounced in their rejection of Christianity as Paine and Ingersoll. That Washington was not a church cummunicant, nor even a believer in Christianity, is affirmed or admitted by more than a score of witnesses, ong-half of them eminent clergymen,- including the pastors t' the .churches which he with his wife attended. In su^]jOTt of Lincoln's Infidelity, he has collected the testimony of more than one hundred witnesses. These witnesses include Mr. Lincoln's wife; his three law partners, IMaj. Stuart, Judge Logan and W. H. Herndon; his private secretaries, Colonel Nicolay and Col. Hay; his executor after death. Judge David Davis; many of his biographers, including his companion and confidant, Col. Lamon; his political advisers, Col. Matheny, Jesse W. Fell, and Dr. Jayne; members of his cabinet, and scores more of his most intimate friends and associates. The refutation of Grant's alleged Christian belief is complete and the proofs of his unbelief are full and convincing. THE TRUTH SEEKER CO.,

<* The Truth Seeker is to=day the strongest foe with which Superstition has to contend,"

The Truth Seeker stands for justice, for liberty, for equality of all before the law, reeardless of religions belief. It asks for justice, not only for the Freethinkers, but for the Jews, for the Adventists, for every sect, and for every person whose rights are now ignored by the dominant

men

religion.

The Truth Seeker works for liberty, for the opportunity for every Christian to worship as he chooses, and for the right of the Infidel to refrom worship without being robbed of his citizenship. It stands for one man's right to be a heretic and for another's to be any kind of a religious believer he pleases. It stands for absolute liberty, for a perfectly unfettered freedom of the human mind, ' hich is now so cramped and
frain

chained by custom and creed. The Truth Seeker works for equality. When one man can build a church and make another support it, there is no equality between them. When one man does as he likes on one day of the week and forces another to do as he does also, then equality ceases, and we have master and slave. When the tyrant takes the education of the other man's children into his
"care and keeping, the equality still further disappears. It is The Truth Seeker's work to make the boasted equality of man actual, and not the catch phrase it now is. The Truth Seeker constantly prints the most varied and interesting original papers. The Truth Seeker gives all the news of Freethought, and is always on guard against the encroachments of Ecclesiasticism upon the people's.
Liberties. The sixteen large pag^es of The Truth Seeker are filled each week scientific, philosophical, and Freethought articles and communications by the ablest Liberals of the country. The J ruth Seeker is a paper tor the Family, for the Philosopher, for the Thinker. It is iconoclastic to Error, but a Builder for the Truth. And it is more. As has been well said of it: "A paper like The Truth Seeker is something more and better than an advocate of truth. Through it its subscribers touch elbows with each other. Each reader knows that he is one of a goodly company who find comfort and inspiration in its pages.
