Salvation would be to come forward and have his head cut off and spill
his blood upon the ground...it would also take the life of his
children.” - “This law of monogamy, or the monogamic system, laid the
foundation for prostitution and the evils and diseases of the most
revolting nature and character under which modern Christendom groans…”
- "Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If
the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the
seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot.
This will always be so."
