"The Papists they cry, Conform. And the Turk, he cries, Conform. And did not the heathen Emperors cry, Conform? And the Presbyterian, he cried, Conform. And the Independents ... So all these cry, Conform ... So everyone that gets the uppermost, and gets the staff of authority, commands people ... But no law of Jesus requires it, who said, ' Freely you have received, freely give.'" (Fox, quoted in Sharman, 1991, p.240)
