"We are now entering a period of incredible ironies. Let us site but one of these ironies which is yet in its subtle stages. We will see in our time a maximum effort made to establish irreligion as the state religion. It is actually a new form of Paganism. Which uses the carefully preserved and cultivated freedoms of Western Civilization to shrink freedom. Even as it rejects the value essence of our rich [Christian] heritage."
-Neal A. Maxwell BYU 1978
