Is Conscience a Safe Guide? [excerpt]

     (2.) A Defiled Conscience, Titus, 1:15.
     Leon Czolgosz was once a conscientious young man, a member of the Roman Catholic church, but, under the influence of Emma Goldman and her anarchistic literature, his conscience became so defiled that he assassinated President McKinley and laid down his life for the deed, because he felt that he had, as he said, “done his duty.” Such a conscience is not a safe guide.
