Wendell Phillips

1811 - 1884

A Quote by Wendell Phillips on community, slavery, and universe

The community which does not protect its humblest and most hated member in the free utterance of his opinions, no matter how false or hateful, is only a gang of slaves. If there is anything in the universe that can't stand discussion, let it crack.

A Quote by Wendell Phillips on change, christ, christianity, conflict, creation, earth, god, history, science, scientists, and truth

The paleontological evidence before us today clearly demonstrates ordered progressive change with the successive development of new faunal and floral assemblages through the changing epochs of our earth's history. There should be no real conflict between science, which is the search for truth, and Christ's teachings, which I hold to be truth itself. It is only when scientists remove God from creation that the Christian is faced with an irreconcilable situation.
