(p.227) 11 Religion
Kentucky and the Great War

David J. Bettez

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the role religious leaders played in persuading Kentuckians to support the war effort and in ministries at Camp Taylor during the war. For many religious leaders, the war was a righteous crusade against the German “Huns,” who embodied evil. Key religious figures included Louisville’s Southern Baptist Theological Seminary professor William J. McLaughlin and Patrick Henry Callahan. Most denominations, even those that normally opposed war, fell in line and supported the US war effort.

Keywords:   William J. McLaughlin, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Patrick Henry Callahan, Catholic, Methodist, Christian
