Missionary zeal does not grow out of intellectual beliefs, nor out of theological arguments, but out of love. If I do not love a person I am not moved to help him by proofs that he is in need; if I do love him, I wait for no proof of a special need to urge me to help him.
The only way to be true to our American tradition is to maintain absolute governmental neutrality regarding religious beliefs and practices.
