“During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.”

A Memorial and Remonstrance addressed to the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, 1785
