Milner the methodist
Note from 'Begin "Decline & Fall"' chapter from 'Memoirs Of My Life And Writing' by Gibbon

From his grammar school at Kingston-upon-Hull, Mr. Joseph Milner pronounces an anathema against all rational religion. His faith is a divine taste, a spiritual inspiration; his church is a mystic and invisible body; the natural Christians, such as Mr. Locke, who believe and interpret the Scriptures, are, in his judgement, no better than profane infidels.
