Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American public official, writer, scientist, and printer who playeda major part in the American Revolution When a religion isgood, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does notsupport itself, and God does not take care to support it so thatits professors are …obliged to call for help of the civil power,'tis a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one. -- Benjamin Franklin , letter to Richard Price, October 9,1780, quoted from Adrienne Koch, ed., The American Enlightenment:The Shaping of the American Experiment and a Free Society, NewYork: George Braziller, 1965, p. 93. The way to see by faith is toshut the eye of reason: The Morning Daylight appears plainer whenyou put out your Candle. -- Benjamin Franklin , the incompatibility of faith andreason, Poor Richard's Almanack (1758) I have foundChristian dogma unintelligible. Early in life I absented myselffrom Christian assemblies. -- Benjamin Franklin , quoted from Victor J Stenger, HasScience Found God? (2001) Many a long dispute among divines maybe thus abridged: It is so; It is not so. It is so; it is not so. -- Benjamin Franklin , Poor Richard's Almanack, 1743If we look back into history for the character of the present sectsin Christianity, we shall find few that have not in their turnsbeen persecutors, and complainers of persecution. The primitiveChristians thought persecution extremely wrong in the pagans, butpracticed it on one another. The first Protestants of the Church ofEngland blamed persecution in the Romish Church, but practiced itupon the Puritans. These found it wrong in the bishops, but fellinto the same practice themselves both here and in New England. -- Benjamin Franklin , An Essay on Toleration Lighthouses are more helpful than churches. -- Benjamin Franklin ( attributed: source unknown ) He[the Rev Mr. Whitefield] used, indeed, sometimes to pray for myconversion, but never had the satisfaction of believing that hisprayers were heard. -- Benjamin Franklin , from Franklin's Autobiography [Excerpt]: "A little Religion, and a little Honesty, goes a great way inCourts." -- Benjamin Franklin , comparing the politicized clergymanwith the regular clergyman, a thing which a few have ventured to doin recent times (Ahem!), quoted in The New England Currant (July23, 1722), "Silence Dogood, No. 9; Corruptio optimi estpessima. " quoted from The History Carper Ã¢ï¿½ Ã¢ï¿½[Excerpt]: "But the most dangerous Hypocrite in a Commonwealth, is one who leaves the Gospel for the sake of the Law : A Man compoundedof Law and Gospel, is able to cheat a whole Country with hisReligion, and then destroy them under Colour of Law : Andhere the Clergy are in great Danger of being deceiv'd, and thePeople of being deceiv'd by the Clergy, until the Monster arrivesto such Power and Wealth, that he is out of the reach of both, andcan oppress the People without their own blind Assistance." -- Benjamin Franklin , comparing the politicized clergymanwith the regular clergyman, a thing which a few have ventured to doin recent times (Ahem!), quoted in The New England Currant (July23, 1722), "Silence Dogood, No. 9; Corruptio optimi estpessima. " quoted from The History Carper, thanks to Benfor the tip! Ã¢ï¿½ Ã¢ï¿½ [Passage]: "This Political Description of a Hypocrite, may (for ought I know)be taken for a new Doctrine by some of your Readers; but let themconsider, that a little Religion, and a little Honesty, goes agreat way in Courts. 'Tis not inconsistent with Charity todistrust a Religious Man in Power, tho' he may be a good Man; hehas many Temptations "to propagate publick Destruction for Personal Advantages and Security:" And if his Natural Temperbe covetous, and his Actions often contradict his pious Discourse,we may with great Reason conclude, that he has some other Design inhis Religion besides barely getting to Heaven. "But the most dangerous Hypocrite in a Commoneealth, is one who leaves the Gospel for the sake of the Law : A Man compoundedof Law and Gospel, is able to cheat a whole Country with hisReligion, and then destroy them under Colour of Law : Andhere the Clergy are in great Danger of being deceiv'd, and thePeople of being deceiv'd by the Clergy, until the Monster arrivesto such Power and Wealth, that he is out of the reach of both, andcan oppress the People without their own blind Assistance. "And it is a sad Observation, that when the People too late seetheir Error, yet the Clergy still persist in their Encomiums on theHypocrite; and when he happens to die for the Good of hisCountry, without leaving behind him the Memory of one goodAction, he shall be sure to have his Funeral Sermon stuff'dwith Pious Expressions which he dropt at such a Time, and atsuch a Place, and on such an Occasion; than which nothing can bemore prejudicial to the Interest of Religion, nor indeed to theMemory of the Person deceas'd. The Reason of this Blindness in theClergy is, because they are honourably supported (as they ought tobe) by their People, and see nor feel nothing of the Oppressionwhich is obvious and burdensome to every one else." -- Benjamin Franklin , comparing the politicized clergymanwith the regular clergyman, a thing which a few have ventured to doin recent times (Ahem!), quoted in The New England Currant (July23, 1722), "Silence Dogood, No. 9; Corruptio optimi estpessima.
