This statement of Mr. Wright wo shall not
call in quesliiin, though wo confess our stir
prise'therent. It is news to i s that thousands
of families ill Ohio withhold the bible from
their children. In our judgment it is a
course of education of very doubtful propriety.
Nay more, positively wrong, even with such
as entirely ngrco with Mr. Wright in regard
lo tho character of tho book. Wo would
put the Ilihlu into the hands of our children,
candidly mid fully informing them of thu
claims set lip in ils behalf nml of the vari
ous opinions entertained in regard to it.
With such a course they may bo safely led
to (heir own convictions. To do otherw ise
is to deny them the means of judging for
then, selves of tho claims of the book. It is
to make them the victims of the opinions, not
In say the prejudices of their parents. And
for ourselves wo hove no preference that our
children should uuintelligeully receive opiu
ions adverse, to the divinity of the bible, or
its morality, rather than those in favor qf it.
Tho bible, is n truthful history of the past.
Just such a icpreseutnlion of it ns our expe
rience gives us of the present. We have a
record of the follies nnd crimes of the limes
nnd the opinions and eirciiuislnuces hy which
they were sanctified. Wo hovo nUo tho re
cord of tho virtues of those nges, nnd we
would not hy any menus that our children
should be ignorant of tho grand, stern truths
there told or of the langungo nnd circum
stances under which they were uttered. To
w ithhold theru is to lenve them an unprotec
ted prey lo the superstitions nnd Jesuitic crnll
of the present ngo, which is no belter than
ihnt of tho age of Confucius, Moses or Aris
tollle. We would therefore suggest to thoso
fuuulies, be they hundreds or thousands, who
hope to protect their children from supersti
tion or immorality hy withholding the Bible,
that they reconsider their determination.
Thu book nud its divinity will be urged upon
litem hy the most impressive considerations.
Ignonince of its contents will very poorly
qualify them to judge of ils claims.
