“But we have the right to hold to a high faith that the end will be a tremendous overturning of militancy among all the nations, and a long reign of peace among the nations, which will have learned that war is the foolishest and shamefullest and wickedest way of settling the differences that arise between them.  Now we shall pray only incidentally for our own nation, and there is no national sin of our own involved in this case. … We will insult neither side in our prayers, and will leave judgment to God, but no more than the British and the Germans can we … laws, so many cubic feet of air for bedrooms, sheets eight feet long for hotels, fire escapes, good streets, laws of traffic, speed of automobiles, hours and wages of labor, all very important, but all developed out of necessities of the piggery.”
