"No pious slaveholders will there be after the reasonable and practical religion of Jesus shall have taken the place of bundles of theoriy and superstition." At the head of the title, "Religion of Reason, No. 4." The well-known abolitionist and reformer Smith here argues that organized religion should be abolished and that any religion in support of slavery is no religion at all.
