      President William Howard Taft had stated at a missionary conference in "No man can study the movement of modern CIVILIZATION from an impartial standpoint, and not realize that Christianity and the spread of Christianity are the basis of hope of modern CIVILIZATION in the growth of popular self government.   It is commonly said that the Irish saved civilization, and this is in part truth.
