"The advocates of religious voluntaryism demanded that all religions and churches should be supported by voluntary membership and voluntary giving. They opposed taxation for the purpose of maintaining a State religion, and resisted compulsory attendance and membership in State churches. The opponents of religious voluntaryism were quick to point out its radical implications. If the only true church was the voluntary church, then the only true political organization was a voluntary State." (02/06/11)
