Brann's Iconoclast

Excerpt sample of William Cowper Brann's writing (from the first column, bottom third): "When we find a contumacious sinner we waste no time in theological controversy or moral suasion, but promptly round him up with a rope and bump his head, and we bump it hard. Why consume our energies “agonizing” with an emissary of Satan, explaining his error and striving by honied phrases to lead him into the light, when it is so much easier to seize him by pompadour and pantalettes and drag him bodily from the abyss?"
