Freedom of Thought

You young people live in an age when freedom of the mind is suppressed over much of the world. We must preserve it in the church . . . and resist all efforts of earnest men to suppress it. Preserve, then, the freedom of your mind in education and religion, and be unafraid to express your thoughts and to insist upon your right to examine every proposition.

We are not so concerned with whether your thoughts are orthodox or heterodox as we are that you shall have thoughts.
