Excerpt from Austin AddressesCommon Ground Whoever emphasizes the particular at the expense of the common, the sectarian instead of the universal, breeds discontent and discourages unity. There may have been a time when progress demanded the literal devotion to a creed but that time has passed.He who proclaims his faith as the only one that leads to salvation, and sends to perdition all who disagree, is living in the wrong age. When the Constitutional Convention of the United States convened, no single faith was ready to give way to another and none were willing for others to gain an advantage. Brancroft wisely remarks, American law was the growth of necessity, not the wisdom of individual. And if such were the conditions in those early days, what can we expect today, when faiths are counted by the hundreds, and when each looks to a constitutional guarantee for its right to worship God according to its dictates.As thinking men and women, we cannot agree upon everything. Life would lose its zest were we to think and act alike. But we can sympathize with each others views; we can be tolerant. You and I can be the best of friends without knowing to what faith the other swears allegiance, and we-can fulfill our duties as citizens of this great republic without parading our religious beliefs.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
