I could not pass up posting this remark by Alexander Campbell on Baptists:

“I had unfortunately formed a very unfavorable opinion of the Baptist preachers as then introduced to my acquaintance, as narrow, contracted, illiberal, and uneducated men” (The Millennial Harbinger, V. No. 1, Third Series, 345-347. Bethany, VA., 1848; quoted in John T. Christian, A History of the Baptists of the United States: From the First Settlement of the Country to the year 1845 [Texarkana, TX: Bogard, 1926], 422).
