Excerpt from a Sermon at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine

Excerpt from a Sermon at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City (12.17.1911)

We must fight for the Constitution with its checks and balances, the bulwark of our freedom. We must fight to keep church and state forever separated. We must fight for our public schools, against the machinations of an Italian hierarchy that is today endeavoring to undermine and destroy them, before it is too late and the hordes of Europe and Asia have engulfed us, let us arise and fight for Anglo-Saxon freedom and Anglo-Saxon discipline, for Almighty God who is still for us.
