"I assert most unhesitatingly, that the religion of the south is a mere covering for the most horrid crimes,—a justifier of the most appalling barbarity,—a sanctifier of the most hateful frauds,—and a dark shelter under, which the darkest, foulest, grossest, and most infernat deeds of slaveholders find the strong protection."
"For of all slaveholders with whom I have ever met, religious slaveholders are the worst."
