Reply to an Inquiry Concerning Tafts Religious dent Asserts That Mass of American Voters Do Not Consider Creed Casting Their Secretary Tatts religious faith Is purely his own private concern and not a matter for general discussion and political dis saya President Roosevelt in a letter he made public last night in which he answers numerous corre The president says he de ferred the publication of the letter un til now to avoid any agitation likely to Influence the The letter fol lows My Dear have received your letter running in part as follows While It is claimed almost uni versally that religion should not enter into yet there is no denying that it and the mass of the vot ers that are not Catholics will not sup porta man for any especially for president of the United who is a Roman Since Taft has been nominated for president by Republican party It IB being circulated and is constantly urged as a reason1 for not voting for Toft tjhat he is an infidel Unitarian and his wife and brother Roman Cath If his feelings are in with the Roman Catholic church on account of his wife and brother being Catholics that would be Objectionable to a sufficient number ot voters to defeat On the other it he is an infidel that would be to mean I am tha sole DUMlOSe I did not answer any of those letters during the campaign be cause 1 regarded it as an outrage even to agitate such a question as a mans religious convictions with the purpose of influencing a political But now that the campaign Is when there is opportunity for men calmly to consider whither such propositions as those you make In your letter would I wish to Invite them to and I have selected your letter to answer because you advance both the objections commonly urged against that he is a Unl i tarian and also that he is suspected of In sympathy with the You ask that Taft shall let the world know what his religious be lief This is purely his own pri vate and it is a matter be tween him and his a matter Edward Everett at the

principles of our any lor ot which guarantees complete religious liberty ami the right to each man to act in religious affairs as his own con science Taft never asked any advice in the but if he had asked it I should naive emphatically advised him against thus stating pub licly his religious The demand for a statement of a candidates reli belief can have no meaning ex cepUtbat there may be discrimination for or against him because of that be Discrimination against the holder of one faith means retaliatory discrim ination against men of other The inevitable result of entering upon such a practice would be an abandon ment of our real freedom of conscience a reversion to the dreadful condi tions of religious dissension which In BO many lands have proved fatal to true to true religion and to all advance in Religious To discriminate against a thorough ly upright citizen because he to some church or like Abraham he has not his allegiance to any la outrage against that liberty of
