Ours is an age of criticism, to which everything must be subjected. The sacredness of religion, and the authority of legislation, are by many regarded as grounds for exemption from the examination by this tribunal, But, if they are exempted, and cannot lay claim to sincere respect, which reason accords only to that which has stood the test of a free and public examination.

Unser Zeitalter ist ein Zeitalter der Kritik, dem alles unterworfen sein muss. Die Heiligkeit der Religion und die Autorität der Gesetzgebung werden von vielen als Gründe für die Befreiung von der Prüfung durch dieses Gericht angesehen, aber wenn sie freigestellt sind, können sie keinen Anspruch auf aufrichtigen Respekt erheben, dessen Grund nur dem entspricht, was gestanden hat der Test einer freien und öffentlichen Prüfung.
