In the year 1415 the corruptions of Rome were unbearable. She was
mistress of the land. None could stay her hand. Unbelief meant the
dungeon. Protest meant the stake. A man stood up with courage and
shouted into the ears of Rome “
”? That little word made
Rome angry and she shouted back
But she stopped
She summoned him to appear in the council and answer charges of
heresy, demanding him to recant. He submitted this proposition
“Disprove my arguments and I recant.” Said Rome, “We’ll disprove
them with the torch.” And they burned him forthwith.
Huss was silent
. We repudiate that deed. The whole church despises it
with horror. The whole Protestant world revolts at the thought of

religion. In that sacred name, which has been a thousand times
desecrated, dungeons have been prepared, fires have been kindled for
martyrs, and every device genius could contrive was made the tool of
usurpation and diabolical power to suppress the liberty of thought, that
the mind of men might be effectually bound in the fetters of espionage
to serve the god of greed, and the Lucifer’s called priests and rulers. And
even a mind with a tendency to reason for itself was persecuted and
intimidated from every source by the instruments of brute degenerates,
