Quote from John J. Dunphy 

"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future
must be waged and won in the public school classroom
by teachers that correctly perceive their role
as proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity
that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians
call divinity in every human being...
The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict
between the old and new -- the rotting corpse of Christianity,
together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith
of humanism, resplendent with the promise of a world in which
the never-realized Christian ideal of 'love thy neighbor'
will finally be achieved."
