POLITICS AND RELIGION. • Sir,—The sad circumstances connected with the death of the Rev. Thomas Law, the great organizer of Free Church Councils, are calculat- ed to raise a question in regard to ministers being saddled with the dual burdens of politics and religion. A man like the late Mr. Law, whom I knew very well, had to bear that dual burden from which he found no rest, until, wrecked in nerve, he became the victim of some irresponsible impure, and the churches he has helped are shocked, and perhaps in- jured. The politician knows no rest.. There is always homething stirring and moving in politics, and always a state of tension. Such a case as Mr. Law's, to my mind, conveys a. warning against an exacting political propa- ganda in connection with any church or churches. The ordinary citizen, too, knocking about the world six days out of seven, in con- tact and frequent argument it may be,, with a great variety of minds, wants a respite from militant politics and policies when he goes to a place of worship. He wants teaching and strengthening in those principles which will guide him in great questions without his being bothered and Derturbed by exhortations to back up this cause or that cause. The Church is emptying her pews and losing her opportunities for usefulness by this dabbling in party poli- tics: in connection with" the worries, vexations, and unrest of which a great man has wrecked bis natural and moral life. Is not his blood on the system?—Yours faithfully, OLD WAYS. Bargoed, April 4th, 1910.
