WILL PAY 100 AN HOUR TO INFI ii DELS TO LISTEIN TO fir TO HIMIConway N Dak July 1504 Editor llhio Grass Blade Dear Sir Enclosed a clipping ri from Minneapolis Dally Times nnd I lbw wish you would give some light on the 1r ictnnilor tho Rev Scruggs offers Jrthlnl r Is a very good proposition and I wish was there to hear him nnd t make a dollar or two beside f kYOllrs truly J V STAR- Tko clippings is as follows AN INVITATION TO CHURCH THAT SHOULD BE ACCEPTED Tho Rev Thomas Scruggs pastorjf a Baptist church at Provo Utah has tknude n public offer to pay a dollar an lff hour to Infidels who will sit In church and listen to him on Sundays Appli i cants must call on him to register and pass nu examination as to their re i ligious belief He Insists upon the ex amination because he wants no mill andwater unbelievers to claim the i dollar an hour It Is his purpose to irlroach tho real pagans and through thou bring the halfway fellows to their souses t i The dispatch announcing tho invita r1 tion stated that no Infidels had ac fflCceptetl the offer though several had f interviewed the minister on the sub 7 EifSjact We hope to hear better reports as t tthe Sundays pass Your Infidel is n person who declares that his mind jj t Is open Usually he classifies himself not ns an Infidel but as an Agnostic That Is he does not know and does It not profess to know He hates dog matism That being true he cannot refuse to hear the other fitconsistently he cannot decline to hear it when he is well paid in cur 2i rent coin for his time i Infidels of Provo who ignore the j t ministers invitation will stamp them selves as bourbons of unbelief and a bourbon has been defined as one who never forgets anything and never loams anything Surely no selfre spcctlng Infidel of Provo desires to at place himself In this classification The Utah minister has put the unbe Hovers of his community in a dilemma and the horn they must logically seize is the one which means a lecture on tho folly of their ways with a dollar for their trouble Those who stay y5ku away will givgjhe preacher a splendid v opening for sarcastic remarks You may rest ussured that no preacher is ever going to pay a dollar to get anybody to listen to him That is not their graft They will take in any amount of money they can get i their hands on but they never let any of it loose unless they have to If Scruggs is sure that he can rake off two dollars by giving up one he may give it up But the chances are ton to one that If he can fool any M Infidel Into going to hear him preach for the pitiful consideration of a lar an hourwhen the wear and tear on tho Infidels brain and conscience would bo worth ten dolars an hour that proacher would then beat that IUUldel out of that hard earned Jolla Its worth at least two dollars an hour avon to have to look at a man namod Skruggs even If you are deaf and did not have to hear him If Skruggs thinks ho has a me- ssagfto tho Infidel world here is the Blue Qrnass Blado whose job it is to give all such sufferers a hearing But Skruggs like preachers generally wants to ho in the pulpit and have the Infidel in the pew where the Infidel cant talk back at himan advantage that ho would not have In tho Blade Preachers can say very bold things rwhen they know they have a padlock on tho other fellows mouth am an Infidel of the Atheist brand and I am continually on the look for preachers to discuss with In writ rFhugor orally and If Scruggs Is really for an audience of Infidels that 1w111 not cost him a cent he ought to hunt mo up but you will most prob ably tlnd that Rev Scruggs wants his crInfidel audience fixed like they do goose when they are fattening them 6 to abnoramlly increase their livers to sol to rich fools Tho poor geeseand ganders too suppose are nailed down by their web feet and just have to swallow anything that their persecutors stuff down their throats If Scruggs wants to take tune about with me in stuffing each other I am his geranium hut hard up as I am r would not for a dollar an hour just have to sit still and lot him just poke any old theological rot down my throat with no chance to come back at him You might just to get onto his graft go and blow in an hour or two on Scruggs but no Infidel In good stand lug should be fool enough to let tho Christ lanssoo that ho expected to get a dollar out of Scruggs short of kno- ckct ing down and taking it away from him The editor who wrote that must n bright particular star ROME CON CRESS FUND It Is the desire that Dr J B Wil son represent American Freethought at the Worlds Congress

Charles C Moore Dear SIr1 have just received from my brother the Rev F P Reno a copy of the Christian Advocate with an editorial marked as you can see Read It carefMly if you can without getting nausea and give us a good shot comment through the Blade hotI Now York Sun rallies to rescue with a dish of theological bosh or nonsense and from what motive Fanatical hypocrites may think such nonsense fully justifies the Lord In permitting such wholesale destruction of human life and never once mention the fact of His inability to preventt such catastrophes Let us have a good comment from the shoulder out Yours trulyIJ W RENOI The Christian Advocate is publishI ed in New York City An extract fromI Its editorial Is as follows When calamities of a similar naturet have occurred we have stated un derlying principles by which a ration al belief in the existence of a loving and merciful Providence can be har monized with such apparent contradictions as earthquakes eruptionsI such as those of Mont Pelee epidem ics famines floods and tempests On this occasion we will give our readers the opportunity of seeing how an edi torial In the New York Sun faces the problem That whole district now is in mourning It has been afflicted as never before In Us history The Luth eran parish from which the fate excursion party was gathered Is of a simple and unquestioning religious faith and there Is nothing eccentric or sensational about its methods or in its tone It is In a crowded neighborhood and excursions such as that of Wednesday are a necessary relief to the many inhabitants of the district This parish moreover was remarka ble for the magnitude of its Sunday school and for the devotion to the ligious education of the pupils on the part of both pastor and people- It Is on such a community of the very best among the whole four lion people of New York that this ter rible blow has fallen No wonder that the critics of religion and the scoffers at Its theory of an all wise and tenderly loving personal God rise up with such bitter aspersions as those con tained In the letter of our Brooklyn correspondent of yesterday But they might as well cnvclgh against all the suffering care disappointment and torture to which the human race has always been doomed great and small and no matter whether Chlstlans or Jews or heathen before the advent of Christianity and not less since that advent except so far as the progress of enlightenment has multiplied pre ventives and ameliorations Will tho Lutheran parish of St Marks Fall Into decay because of its terrible loss The more probable re suIt will ho a passionate revival of ligion The mourners will seek the consolations of religion In their af fliction and their faith will be increas td rather than diminished The Brook lyn scoffer may tell them that the God they worship is a monster of cruelty and malignity but they will bow be fore Him in humble submission Thy will not mine be done will be the cry of their anguished hearts It Is not In times of prosperity and of abounding health that the churches are crowded It is in times of grlev ous depression like thoso of 1857 When human agencies are unavailing against suffering tho mass of society still turns with faith and hope to seek succor from above Religion con tinues dominant in the world man hu logic Is still powerless over throw It Tho logic which attempts to over throw faith in God pushed to Its lim its would undermine the foundations of morality and Justifying the vast proportion of mankind in hating life and deliberately making an end of It But tho instinct of selfpreservation Is supported by the conviction that the hopeful mystery of God though of ten shrouded In clouds and darkness is infinitely preferable to the hopeless mystery of a universe without a God If there is any meaning whatever in tho editorial of the Christian Advo cate and in what It quotes from tho Sun it Is that what is commonly call ed the Slocum horror is not by any means a horror but Isa great bless- Ing because it has had tho effect to turn the hearts of the people to relig ion and next Thanksgiving day when we are called upon by the pious pres- Ident of the United States to thank God for the blessings of this year tho burning of the General Slocum should be one of the things that wu ought to remember with special grat is no ribaldry or exaggeration but the plain logical conclusion to bo drawn from the reasoning of those two papers There were 1031 of those good Christians who were burned to death or drowned and they have all gone to heaven and are happy and the cause of religion has been greatly ad vanced by tho thing that the ungodly call a horror and of course all Christians ought to thank God that the accident happened and ought to pray that other similar accidents may happen and if some specially pious person on some future Sunday school excursion sets the boat on fire and burns up and drowns a thousand or two more children and their mothers and grandmothers for the good effect it will have in promoting religious re vival editors like those of the Advo cate and the Sun certainly cannot blame him but should commend his Christian zeal The editorial goes on to describe the deep religious awe that was Inspired by the appearance at the Lutheran church the next Sunday of Hass the pastor of tho church who had had charge of the Sunday school outing and had been on the boat and was sav while his wife daughter and moth erinlaw were all lost Hass though stood as a monument of the grace of d He let all the women members of W rtwttftmtoyOTa itutifon 1wro to save hlmselfy Some time since a steamer struck rock just as it had come in sight of the Golden Gate harbor at San Francisco There was no Intimation that the ships captain was pious It is not common for ship captains to be picus The ship sank rapidly and that captain stood on the deck until he saw everybody except himself safe In the life boats He was too late to save himself and was the only one drowned That ship captain was a hero Haas Is a coward The nonsense printed by the Advo cate and the Sun is in keeping with Bible teaching God loveth whom he chastcneth and courgeth every son whom ho recelveth says the New father beats his son people of common sense say it is because he is a bad man but when this heav enly father brings horrible suffering and death upon innocent children Christians say it shows that he is a good and kind father The explanation of this Inconsisten cy is that Christianity is stupid and irrational and editors and preachers want to make money out of it and so we have these stupid efforts to make horrible things appear to be blessings and thus Christianity fills the world with liars and hypocrites TOADYING TO

trend of the Christian religion is towards Catholic Ism and that is just what I want to seeNothing will ever bring the Protes tants of this country to a sense of the danger of religion except to see plain ly that the politicians are bidding for tho Catholic vote and that they will give all the Interests of this country to the Catholics in order to get that voteWhenever we can get the Catholics to crush out Protestantism then wo will have all the best element of Pro testantism on the Infidel side and will veih vfreft fight betwesnEomojjnd Reason that we want and then we will make Rome howl and
