There has been no discrimination. The challenge is to all mankind.
Page 421 - And whereas it hath been found by experience, that it is inconsistent with the safety and welfare of this Protestant kingdom, to be governed by a Popish prince...
Page 772 - There is one choice we cannot make, we are incapable of making : we will not choose the path of submission and suffer the most sacred rights of our nation and our people to be ignored or violated.
Page 218 - No free man shall be taken or imprisoned or dispossessed, or outlawed, or banished, or in any way destroyed, nor will we go upon him, nor send upon him, except by the legal judgment of his peers or by the law of the land.
Page 415 - Yet much remains To conquer still ; peace hath her victories No less renown'd than war; new foes arise, Threatening to bind our -souls with secular chains : Help us to save free conscience from the paw Of hireling wolves, whose gospel is their maw.
Page 779 - Germany has once more said that force, and force alone, shall decide whether justice and peace shall reign in the affairs of men, whether Right as America conceives it or Dominion as she conceives it shall determine the destinies of mankind. There is, therefore, but one response possible from us: Force, Force to the utmost, Force without stint or limit, righteous and triumphant Force which shall make Right the law of the world, and cast every selfish dominion down in the dust.
