BURN THE LIBRARY!

In connection with the destruction of the 700 000 manuscript volumes of the Alexandrian library, the Caliph Omar said

Either these books conform to the Koran or they do not. If they do, they are not needed; if they do not, they are positively harmful. Therefore, let them be destroyed.

WHAT DID CHRISTIANS DO?

 

What did Puritans come to this country for?

Asked a teacher in a class of American history.

 

To worship in their own way, and make other people do not same, was the reply

FANATICS DISAPPOINTED!

 

The Young Men’s Christian Association appointed a committee to go to President Lincoln to protest his appointment of the Rev Mr Shrigley as hospital chaplain in the army. When they first approached, the president mentioning Mr Shrigleys name, he misunderstood them and thought they had come to praise his choice and said,

“Oh yes, I have sent it to the Senate. His testimonials are highly satisfactory, and the appointment will no doubt be confirmed at an early date”.

Hastily the committee spokesman protested,

“But sir, we have come not to ask for the appointment, but to solicit to withdraw the nomination, on the ground that Mr Shrigley is not evangelical in his sentiments”.

“Ah! Said the president, that alters the case. On what point of doctrine is the gentleman unsound? “

“He doesn’t believe in endless punishment”, was the reply.

“Yes, added another member of the committee, he believes that even the rebels themselves will finally be saved; and it will never do to have a man with such views as hospital chaplain”.

 

The president was silent for a moment. Then, regarding the expectant faces about him, he said with emphasis,

“If that be so, gentlemen, and there be any way under heaven where by the rebels can be saved, then let the man be appointed!”

TRAGIC GALILEO

 

There are few more tragic records of the struggle of the human mind and spirit against bigotry than this text of Galileo”s recantation before the Holy Inquisition

 

“But because I have been enjoined by this Holy Office altogether to abandon the false opinion which maintains that the sun is the centre and immovable, and forbidden to hold, defend or teach the said false doctrine in any manner and after it had been signified to me that the aid doctrine is repugnant with the Holy Scripture.

 

I abjure, curse and detest the sad heresies and errors…….. and I swear that I will never or assert anymore in future say or more anything verbally  or in writing , which may give rise to a  similar suspicion of me”.
