Since shortly after the second century the Christian Church ,has been gradually led into a total mis conception of the Divine character as manifested in the "Divine attitude fo ward humanity. Little by little heathenish doctrines respecting an eternity of torture for all ex cept the favored few were preached.

From Port Fairy to Portland per S.S. Casino. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 16 February 1914
From Port Fairy to Portland per S.S. Casino. Eight o'clock on Wednesday morn ing saw over eighty smiling faces aboard the s.s. Casino, bound for Portland, all anticipating a most enjoyable trio. It looked a perfect day to be on the briny, but we had only reached the Griffth Island lighthouse when we realised that the sea was not a sheet of glass, as it appeared from the shore. Shortly after passing Boarding School Bay most :of the ladies showed a remarkable interest in the sea, and were very silent. Soon the men,'too, edged to.therailings. Some of the remarks uttered by the hapless victims were greatly enjoyed, by those who managed to keep up a little longer. One lady, very- much to the fore, used to say : " O--h, let me get off; for goodness sake let me get off." A keen cyclist, who had his machine aboard, wanted to ride the rest of the way. Another female passenger was heard to exclaim-" And they call this pleasure ; I would rather stay in Port Fairy- for the rest of iny life than...
