The Excellency of the Christian Religion Above All Others

Benjamin Franklin

“History will also afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion, from its usefulness to the public; the advantage of a religious character among private persons; the mischiefs of superstition, &c. and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others ancient or modern.” – Benjamin Franklin, Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pennsylvania (1749)
