The “salvation of man”

“The great enemy of the salvation of man in my opinion never invented a more effectual means of extirpating Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible in schools…..The Bible when not read in schools is seldom read in any subsequent period of life….It should be read in our schools in preference to all other books from its containing the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and temporal happiness.”
