Frederick Douglass: No God But Wealth

Posted by admin on Saturday, July 15, 2017

Frederick Douglass Money Quote from an 1857 speech reflecting on how slave-holders and profiteers would respond to John the Disciple dismissing angelic visits from God to discuss wealth. Frederick Douglass said:

But brother John, will it pay? Can money be made out of it? Will it make the rich richer, and the strong stronger? How will it affect property? In the eyes of such people, there
is no God but wealth; no right and wrong
but profit and loss
— Frederick Douglass
