Now that the suit is withdrawn, it may not be out of place to remark that it hardly seems worth while in these days to persecute an old lady, or even a young one, for belief in the absolute power of God. Religious views are blessings to which we are all entitled, and as we may enjoy the doctrine of original sin or eternal damnation without being suspected of insanity, it would seem as if perfect confidence in the power of the creator, and a more or less honest metaphysical attempt to explain the mysteries of sin and suffering, ought not to arouse such violent irritation as they have. It is really amusing, when one comes to think of it, that any attempt to make mankind happier and better should have so infuriated them, or that the theory that the words of Christ were to be taken literally should have so disturbed Christendom.
