Theodore Roosevelt - The Choice is Christianity or Paganism

"Teddy" Roosevelt was the 26th president of the USA. He said:

"Progress has brought us both unbounded oppourtunities and unbridled difficulties. I believe that the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism. The thought of modern industry in the hands of Christian chariity is a dream worth dreaming. The thought of industry in the hands of paganism is a nightmare beyond imagining. The choice between the two is upon us.

"There is only one morality. All else is immorality. There is only true Christian ethics over against which stands the whole of paganism. If we are to fulfill our great destiny as a people, then we must return to the old morality, the sole morality."

Found in the book "The Courage and Character of Theodore Roosevent" by George Grant. See this passage at Google Books.
