Church and State in America [excerpt]

     The monuments we see erected to the memory of William McKinley are religious monuments. Had McKinley died a natural death, instead of being assassinated, and had he died without addressing his last words, “Not my will, but thy will be done,” to the Christian God, these monuments would not have been erected, and his memory would have been less cherished than that of Cleveland, who, although not a churchman, was not guilty of duplicity.
