presidential assassinations (comparison); McKinley assassination (religious interpretation); McKinley assassination (religious response: criticism).
Named persons
James A. Garfield; Abraham Lincoln; William McKinley.



     The Christians tell us that the Lord removed Lincoln for some good purpose, or in other words, allowed him to be assassinated for some good purpose, that their Lord did not answer the prayers of the Christians for Garfield’s recovery for some good reason, and the same with President McKinley. They admit that their Lord could have saved the lives of these three Presidents if He had desired to. If it could truthfully be said of any man that he was in a position to have saved the lives of each of these Presidents and failed to do so, everybody would call him an Anarchist.
