Excerpt from Notes on Dr. Scott's Bible and Politics
Now let it be noted, that these are grave charges to be preferred by one minister of the Lord Jesus, against three other ministers, and one Of them a co-presbyter with himself, and for whom he says, on the same page, I have the highest personal respect. If these charges be true, the parties implicated deserve the severest rebuke; and more especially so, if all this effort, by writing and preaching, to get God's word into the schools, and to Obtain a law for the better Observance Of His Sabbaths, was a mere hypocritical pretense, under cover Of which Dr. Scott was to be persecuted and Calvary Church broken down.
The occasion of this alleged persecution, the Dr. Tells us, was the publi cation of an extract from one of his sermons in the San Francisco Times, and he leads us to infer, that in consequence of this published extract of his, the pulpits Of the city and State took up the subject Of the Bible in the schools. Thus on page 11, he says The pulpits Of the city and Of the State, have taken up the subject to some extent - how extensively, I am not precisely informed, but in many Of the interior towns the pulpits have been thus employed and the Rev. Drs. Anderson and Peck Of this city, for whom I have the highest personal respect, have at least preached seven Sunday evening discourses on the subject. I humbly submit that the pulpits of the interior towns, and those of Drs. Peck and Anderson could not be better employed, especially in a State, in the public schools of which, God's Bible is not found.
