“Moral standards of yesterday to many individuals are no standard for today unless supported by the so-called ‘intellectuals.’ I sincerely believe that partial education throughout the world is far worse than none at all, if we only educate the mind without the soul…. turn that man loose upon the world [who has] no power higher than his own, he is a monstrosity, he is but halfway educated, and is more dangerous than though he were not educated at all. You can stick a public school and a university in the middle of every block of every city in America and you will never keep America from rotting morally by mere intellectual education. During the past few years the intellectual properties have been knocked out from under the theories of men. Even the average university professor is willing to listen to the voice of the preacher. [In place of the Bible] we substituted reason, rationalism, mind culture, science worship, the working power of government, Freudianism, naturalism, humanism, behaviorism, positivism, materialism, and idealism. [This is the work of] so-called intellectuals. Thousands of these ‘intellectuals’ have publicly stated that morality is relative – that there is no normal or absolute standard.”

–Billy Graham, cited in Richard Hofstadter’s “Anti-Intellectualism in American Life” (1963).
