Review of the Statement of the Faculty of Lane Seminary in Relation to the Recent Difficulties in that Institution

in accordance with the Gospel?  The history of the world shows that public 

sentiment has been oftener wrong than right.  Many of the greatest 

enormities ever witnessed on earth have been sanctioned by public 

sentiment.  In the judgement of many of the wisest and best men 

of the nation, public is wrong, egregiously wrong.  The object of 

the students in their society was to cooperate with similar 

institutions to change what they deemed wrong in public 

sentiment.  This they and all others had a right to do.  Without 

such right there could be no public reform.  To attack public 

sentiment when wrong, with arguments and example is no 

violence, else the Savior and his Apostles did violence to 

public sentiment.  They attacked it both with argument and 

practice, and were charged with turning the world up-

side down.  It is no violence to do what is our duty.  

Public sentiment assumes the chair of the Pope when it 

places itself above investigation, and meets opposing ar-

guments with clubs and stones.
