Buffalo Preacher Flays Prejudices of Germans

Download PDF for this date

“Prejudice must go from human lives,” said the Rev. William Thomas Heath of Trinity Church, Delaware Ave., in a sermon at the Church, citing the atrocities against Jewry in Germany as an “unmastered prejudice.”

He said in part: “In the persecution of Jews in Germany, which seems such a barbarous thing, we see writ large the awful power of evil which exists in unmastered prejudiee. We anxiously refer to it as the Jewish problem, but in thus speaking we confuse our own minds. It must seem highly ironical to a Jew to hear the things that are going on in Germany referred to as the Jewish problem. The problem centers in the unmastered prejudices of those Germans who call themselves Christians.”
