Crimes of Preachers in the United States and Canada by ME Billings 1914
Excerpt: THE TEN PARSONs
Ten little preachers preaching love divine.
One kissed a servant girl, then there were nine.
Nine little preachers preaching sinners' fate,
One got drunk, then there were eight.
Eight little preachers showing path to heaven,
One seduced a brother's wife, then there were seven.
Seven little preachers exposing Satan's tricks,
One beat his patient wife, then there were six.
Six little preachers preaching Christ alive.
One debauched a little girl, then there were five.
Five little preachers preaching sin no more,
One raped a sister, then there were four.
Four little preachers, pure as they could be,
One raped an eight-year-old, then there were three.
Three little preachers, pity so few.
One murdered his paramour, then there were two
Two little preachers following the son.
One whipped his child to death, then there was one.
One little preacher in the fold alone.
He committed suicide, then there were none."

The Mountain Meadows massacre involved a mass slaughter of the Fancher-Baker emigrant wagon train at Mountain Meadows in the Utah Territory by the local Mormon militia in September 1857. It began as an attack, quickly turned into a siege, and eventually culminated on September 11, 1857, in the execution of the unarmed emigrants after their surrender.

Special Report of the Mountain Meadows Massacre by J.H. Carleton, Brevet Major, US Army 1902
An Englishwoman in Utah: The Story of a Life's Experience in Mormonism by T. B. H. Stenhouse
"I FEEL myself utterly incompetent to tell the story of the Mountain Meadows Massacre—it is so shocking, so fiend-like. And yet it must be told."
Mark Twain's book Roughing It - has an appendix dealing with the massacre:
For the benefit of those who may still be disposed to doubt the guilt of Young and his Mormons in this transaction, the testimony is here collated and circumstances given which go not merely to implicate but to fasten conviction upon them by 'confirmations strong as proofs of Holy Writ'
Counterfeit Miracles by BB Warfield 1918
Examines church history and various examples of miracles, such as "mind-cure" miracles (like those of Christian Science), Roman Catholic miracles, etc., and shows that we are in no way obligated to believe them, and that the case for these miracles is weak at best.
"Maria Monk (June 27, 1816 – summer of 1839) was a Canadian woman who claimed to have been a nun who had been sexually exploited in her convent. She, or ghost writers who used her as their puppet, wrote a sensational book about these allegations.
Maria Monk's book Awful Disclosures of Maria Monk, or, The Hidden Secrets of a Nun's Life in a Convent Exposed was published in January 1836. In it, Monk claimed that nuns of the Sisters of Charity of a Montreal convent of the Hôtel-Dieu were forced to have sex with the priests in the seminary next door. The priests supposedly entered the convent through a secret tunnel. If the sexual union produced a baby, it was baptized and then strangled and dumped into a lime pit in the basement. Uncooperative nuns disappeared. Historians are unanimous in their agreement that the whole account was false."

On the Church and Misogyny/Polygamy:
Woman by Vance Thompson -1917
"Hark to him, thundering through the mouth of Tertullian: "Do you know, 0 women, that each of you is an Eve? God's sentence upon this sex of
yours is still in force and the guilt, of necessity, also persists; you are the devil's gateway!" (May I interrupt the thunder of Tertullian, for a second, while I recall the words of the exultant American prophet, Walt Whitman? You remember: "Be not ashamed, women, you are the gates of the body, you are the gates of the soul.") Tertullian continues: "You are the devil's gateway! You are the robber of the forbidden tree. You are the first rebel to the divine law. You are she who persuaded MAN to evil—whom the Devil himself was not valiant enough to attack. So lightly did you destroy God's image, MAN.'' Thus Woman incarnated the sin of the world."
The Origin and Development of the Moral Ideas
by Edward Westermarck 1906
Page 663: " Do you not know," he exclaims, " that you are each an Eve ? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age ; the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil's gateway; you are the unsealer of that [forbidden] tree ; you are the first deserter of the divine law ; you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God's image, man. On account of your desert—that is, death—even the Son of God had to die." At the Council of Macon, towards the end of the sixth century, a bishop even raised the
question whether woman really was a human being. He answered the question in the negative ; but the majority of the assembly considered it to be proved by Scripture that woman, in spite of all her defects, yet was a member of the human race. However, some of the Fathers of the Church were careful to emphasise that womanhood only belongs to this earthly existence, and that on the day of resurrection all women will appear in the shape of sexless beings.
The Old-fashioned Woman: Primitive Fancies about the Sex by Elsie Worthington Clews Parsons 1913
- Page 272: Danger from without is so much easier to understand and meet—or dodge—than danger from within. For an Arab or a Carthaginian or Alexandrian Christian to call women "the whips of Satan" or "the devil's gateway," so for a Hindu to believe that it is "the nature of women to seduce men" into slavery to desire or anger, for a Gaina to teach that women are "female demons" leading men "to pain, to delusion, to death, to hell, to birth as hell-beings or brute beasts," for a Frenchman to "chercher la femme," for an Anglo-Saxon to use the term "women" as a synonym for dissipation, is obviously the line of least resistance.
Woman in the Golden Ages - Page 233 by Mrs. Amelia Ruth (Gere) Mason, Amelia Gere Mason 1901
St. Jerome...remembering, perhaps, how far the work of his life had been aided by women, he adds that " Mary is the source of life." His attacks elsewhere are frequent and merciless. "Woman has the poison of an asp and the malice of a dragon," is the kindly tribute of Gregory the Great. " Of all wild beasts the most dangerous is woman," says St. Chrysostom, who owed so much to his own mother and loved her so devotedly. " It brings great shame to reflect of what nature woman is," writes Clement of Alexandria. One might fill a book with similar quotations. " A woman is an evil." "A woman is a whited sepulcher." This is the burden of priestly complaint from St. Augustine to the Protestant Calvin and John Knox, who sang variations on the same theme in a different key. Not even the classic Greeks were more abusive. All this is specially surprising, since we find no such spirit in the words of Christ, who was invariably gentle toward women and tender even to their faults. St. Paul was disposed to keep them in a very humble place, but, after all, he was never incurably bitter.
The Religion of Woman: An Historical Study - Page 44 by Joseph McCabe 1905
"takes us a step lower in this devolution of Christian culture as regards woman. In his poem to Olympias he expresses the growing feeling of woman's inferiority. Shall the maid Olympias learn philosophy ? By no means. " Woman's philosophy is to obey the laws of marriage." She must refrain even from going to weddings and christenings ; must not give a thought to public affairs — "Let thy house be thy city." Then the usual concern for virginity appears : " Blessed is the one who leads a celibate life, and soils not the divine image within him with the filth of concupiscence."And it has the inevitable ending in a contempt of woman : — " Fierce is the dragon, and cunning the asp ; But woman has the malice of both." Finally, we have in St. John Chrysostom a continuance of this unhappy tendency. A great and popular preacher, with crowds of women always hanging on his lips in one of the chief cities of the Empire, he is nevertheless thoroughly Pauline. He sees symptoms of the feeble revolt that even Christian woman is ever raising against this new despotism of man, and he insists that "she shall not demand equality, for she is under the head." But Chrysostom never breaks into expressions of contempt."
The Churches and Modern Thought: An Inquiry Into the Grounds of Unbelief by Philip Vivian - 1906
Fornication is a lapse from one marriage into many—Clement of Alexandria.
Digamists (widowers who re-marry) are saved in the name of Christ, but are by no means crowned by him.—Origen.
Second marriage is "a decent sort of adultery."—Athenagoras.
It was no part of God's primitive design that the race should be continued by sexual union. Marriage is the outcome of sin.—St.
Gregory of Nyssa (a married bishop). Blessed is the one who leads a celibate life, and soils not the divine image within him with the filth of concupiscence. Fierce is the dragon, and cunning the asp ; But woman has the malice of both. —
St. Gregory of. Naziansum.
Why was woman created at all ?—St. Augustine.
Thou art the devil's gate, the betrayer of the tree, the first deserter of the divine law! Marriage is not far removed from fornication.—Tertullian.
She is more fitted for bodily work.... Remember that God took a rib out of Adam's body, not a part of his soul, to make her. She was not made to the image of God, like man.—St. Ambrose.
Woman is the root of all evil.—St. Jerome,
At the Council of Anxerre, in 578, the bishops forbade women, on account of their " impurity," to take the sacrament in their handi as men did. If women only knew of these sayings, would they approve of the " appeal to the first six centuries "? Bad as the position of woman was under the influence of the early Church teaching, it was, in many respects, still worse during the Middle Ages.
Essays and Studies - by John Churton Collins- 1895 (many pages difficult to read, part of index missing)
"His misogyny goes far beyond that of Milton, it goes even beyond that of the Restoration Dramatists. The misogyny of Milton is that of a philosopher angry with Nature and smarting from wounded pride. The misogyny of the Restoration Dramatists is that of mere libertines and wits. But the misogyny of Chesterfield resembles that of Iago or Frederick they Great. He appears to regard women as occupying a sort of intermediate place, isolated between rational humanity and the animals. They are not bound by the laws which bind men, nor are such laws binding in relation to them. They have their own morality—that is to say, no morality at all ; and a similar immunity is presumed in all who have dealings with them. As they tell no truth, so they exact no truth." A man of sense therefore only trifles with them, plays with them, humours them, and flatters them, as he does with a spritely and forward child." As they are incapable of sincerity and seriousness, sincerity and seriousness are quite out of place in transactions with them. And yet, "as they are necessary ingredients in all good company," and as "their suffrages go a great way in establishing a man's character in society," it is necessary to please and court them.
Monumental Christianity: Or, The Art and Symbolism of the Primitive Church by John Patterson Lundy - 1876
Page 312: The points of resemblance are these, viz. : Pandora and Eve as first of women ; the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and the jar of evils; and the introduction of evil into the world by the first woman. But Eve was tempted, Pandora was not; the former was actuated by a noble instinct, the love of knowledge; the latter merely by vulgar female curiosity." ' It will be noticed that in the above representation of Eve as Pandora, the artist has sought to combine the two stories as given in Genesis and Hesiod. (Fig. 148.) She holds a branch of the fatal tree in her right hand, reclining as she does on a skull, the emblem of death, as the result of disobedience; her left hand is on a vase or box from which issues a serpent; and the mystic jar is close by from which go forth evils in the shape of foul human spirits. She is lying at the opening of a grotto from which the sea, temples, and pyramids are seen.
Woman in Modern Society by Earl Barnes -1912
- Page 59: Eurydice, Pandora, Eve, Lot's wife and Bluebeard's wife have in turn served as awful warnings. After a time it came to be understood by women that they should fix their eyes on their husbands and never look forward or backward, lest they lose their Eden and drag those whom they loved after them to destruction.
Divorce: A Study in Social Causation by James Pendleton Lichtenberger - 1909
Early Christian teaching concerning marriage sprung largely from asceticism. There is much probability that St. Paul's ideas in reference to women and marriage were greatly influenced by the sex-psychopathy of Plato. The consensus of the church fathers is that woman is unclean,
and marriage is a necessary evil, tolerated for the continuance of the race and the prevention of immorality. It is therefore " a compromise with lust from which the saint may well abstain." Hieronymus said: "Marriage is always a vice; all we can do is to excuse and cleanse it."
Sacerdotal celibacy was the inevitable result. In turn, this voluntary sex-suppression produced a growing misogyny of which the middle ages witnessed the consequent evils. Ascetic contempt for women threatened the very foundations of the family.
The Narrative of Eleazer Sherman: Giving an Account of His Life, Experience by Eleazer Sherman - 1832
St. Paul was a man of candor and sound judgment, and knowing that the wornan was the weaker vessel, and that Eve was first in the transgression, as he has stated, he wished to show that women were not to govern the church ; that as the man was the head of the woman, the right of authority or government belonged to the men. They were to rule agreeably to the word of God. In Genesis iii. 16, God says to Eve, "And thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." This shows to every candid mind that the man is to rule and be the head in the affairs both of church and state, as well as in his family. When a woman seeks for this power, she seeks for that which is contrary to the mind of God. We read in one of the ancient prophets, that God said his people had greatly erred, and the women ruled over them. And St. Paul knowing these things perfectly, knew it would not be according to the gospel for the women to rule, therefore he don't suffer them to teach..."
The Subjection of Women
by John Stuart Mill -1878
The Morality of Marriage: And Other Essays on the Status and Destiny of Woman by Mrs. Mona (Alison) Caird -1897
p. 51 "In the case of women, each individual of the subject class is in a chronic state of bribery and intimidation combined, . . . if ever any system of privilege and enforced subjection had its yoke tightly rivetted on the necks of those who are kept down, by it, this has."
Jesus and Modern Religion by Edwin Alfred Robert Rumball-Petre, Edwin Alfred Rumball -1908
At the Council of Auxerre in 578, the bishops forbade women, on account of their "impurity," to take the sacrament in their hands as men did. "
A necessary evil, a natural temptation, a desirable calamity, a domestic peril, a deadly fascination, and a painted ill is woman."—St. Chrysostom. - Page 87
The Womans Bible by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (in searchable pdf format)
"To what extent the sentiment of the Hebrews favored sons rather than daughters, and the injustice of this distinction is fully exemplified by the stories of Abraham and Isaac, and of Jephthah and his daughter. Abraham was commanded by his God to sacrifice his son Isaac, after the manner of the Canaanites, who often slew their children and burnt them upon their altars in honor of their deities. But when all was made ready for the sacrifice an angel of Jehovah appeared, the hand of Abraham was stayed, and a ram was made a substitute for the son of promise.
The conditions were quite different in the case of Jephthah and his daughter. The Israelites had been brought very low in their contest with the Ammonites, and they chose the famous warrior, Jephthah, to
lead them against their foe, who with warlike zeal summoned the hosts to battle. The risk was enormous, the enemy powerful, and the general, burning for victory, intent on securing the assistance of the Deity, made a solemn and fatal vow.
In the first case it was a direct command of God, but means were found to revoke this explicit command with regard to a son; in the second case it was only a hasty and unwise promise of a general going to war, and the prevailing sentiment of the age felt it unnecessary to evade its fulfillment--the victim was only a girl."
Woman, Church, and State. By MATILDA JOSLYN GAGE. (over 500 pages)
This is Mrs. Gage's book to show how the church has enslaved woman and kept her in an inferior position. A glance at the contents will show this.
Original Sin and Celibacy,
Woman Under the Priestly Law,
The "Right of the First Night,"
Witchcraft a Priestly Artifice,
Polygamy Sustained by the Church.
Woman as Merchandise,
Woman and Economics,"
This work is a burning protest against the tremendous wrong done woman by the church, which controlled the state. It is also extremely valuable as history. No woman, it seems to us, can read it and remain a supporter of the religious institution which has crushed her individuality, her mentality, and degraded her person. To the woman's cause it opens an Age of Reason. It ought to be widely read for the good it will do.
History of Woman Suffrage By Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan Brownell Anthony, Matilda Joslyn Gage
Excerpt: Many Protestant divines have written in favor of polygamy. John Lyser, a Lutheran minister, living in the latter part of the seventeenth century, defended it strongly in a work entitled "Polygarnia Triumphatrix." A former general of the Capuchin Order, converted to the Protestant faith, published, in the sixteenth century, a book of " Dialogues in Favor of Polygamy." Rev. Mr. Madan, a Protestant divine, in a treatise called " Thalypthora," maintained that Paul's injunctions that bishops should be the husbands of one wife, signified that laymen were permitted to marry more than one. The scholarly William Ellery Channing could find no prohibition of polygamy in the New Testament. In his "Remarks on the Character and Writings of John Milton," he says: "We believe it to be an indisputable fact, that although Christianity was first preached in Asia, which had been from the earliest days the seat of polygamy, the apostles never denounced it as a crime, and never required their converts to put away all wives but one. No express prohibition of polygamy is found in the New Testament."

"Is it always a sin to go to war?
R. There are three requisites for a war to be
just. The first thing is the authority of the prince
by whose command the war is to be waged. It
does not belong to a private person to start a war,
for he can prosecute his claim in the court of his
superior.1 In like manner the mustering of the
people, that has to be done in wars, does not belong
to a private person. But since the care of the
commonwealth is entrusted to princes, to them
belongs the protection of the common weal of the
city, kingdom, or province subject to them. And
as they lawfully defend it with the material sword
against inward disturbances by punishing malefactors,
so it belongs to them also to protect the
commonwealth from enemies without by the sword

On Christianity and Slavery:
Uncle Tom's Cabin Contrasted with Buckingham Hall - Robert Criswell - 1852
American Slavery and Colour by William Chambers 1857:
"Volumes could be filled with such extracts from sermons of American clergymen, not only vindicating slavery by the perversion of Scripture in its general scope and tendency, but misstating the meaning of the plainest texts. In the front rank of Bible-perverters stands Bishop Meade, an Episcopal clergyman of Virginia, who writes a book of sermons and tracts, specially intended to reconcile slaves to their condition. In the whole range of literature, there is perhaps nothing to match the following address....Having thus shewn you the chief duties you owe to your great Master in heaven, I now come to lay before you the duties you owe to your masters and mistresses here upon earth. And for this you have one general rule, that you ought always to carry in your minds, and that is, to do all service for them as if you did it for God himself. Poor creatures! you little consider when you are idle and neglectful of your masters' business; when you steal, and waste, and hurt any of their substance; when you are saucy and impudent; when you are telling them lies and deceiving them; or when you prove stubborn and sullen, and will not do the work you are set about without stripes and vexation—you do not consider, I say, that what faults you are guilty of towards your masters and mistresses, are faults done against God himself, who hath set your masters and mistresses over you in His own stead, and expects that you will do for them just as you would do for Him. And pray do not think that I want to deceive you when I tell you that your masters and mistresses are God's overseers, and that, if you are faulty towards them, God himself will punish you severely for it in the next world, unless you repent of it, and strive to make amends by your faithfulness and diligence for the time to come..."

"There is not one verse in the Bible inhibiting slavery, but many regulating it. It is not, then, we conclude, immoral....I shall quote no more on the subject of slavery. That inhuman institution was defended by the churches, and the appeal of the churches was to the Bible." (page 97)

These books will elucidate you even more on this fascinating and dark moment in Christian history.
