"The theatre, the cards, and the dance, have been called questions of casuistry, and not without reason. If they were wholly bad, moral people, not to mention Christian people, would have quickly cast them aside." The well-known evangelist (Dwight Moody himself had chosen a young Henry Stough to preach at the Columbian Exposition tent revivals) here weighs in with his detailed (though by the standards of the genre relatively moderate) denunciations of card playing, theatre and social dance.
