Ames, Charles Gordon (1828 - 1912)

Ames, a Unitarian minister, once went on record,

  • We are not obliged to choose between a false religion and no religion at all; our choice is rather between the false and the true, or between the lower and the higher. Nor did harm ever come to the man who lets go a creed which he can no longer retain with honesty; such harm may come from heartless conformity and insincere profession.
