"A preacher not long ago announced that he would have for his subject next
Sunday 'Don't tear your shirt." He took for his text these words, 'Rend your hearts and not your garments,' and preached on repentance. It is that kind of thing that makes atheists. To approach a solemn subject in such a flippant manner is inexcusable. It is time the Christian public goes on a gracious and dignified strike against such comic-strip parody of Gospel preaching."
