„Who would fill the contribution boxes and plates, and who (most serious of all questions) would pay the salaries?“

—  Robert G. Ingersoll Union United States Army officer 1833 - 1899

Yet the preachers denounce them. Were it not for “worldly” people how would the preachers get along? Who would build the churches? Who would fill the contribution boxes and plates, and who (most serious of all questions) would pay the salaries?
