sadDemocrat President Grover Cleveland condemned Islamic terrorism committed against Armenian Christians in Turkey, December 2, 1895:

“Massacres of Christians in Armenia and the development there … of a spirit of fanatic hostility to Christian influences naturally excited apprehension … European powers … have assumed a duty … as agents of the Christian world…to enforce such conduct of Turkish government as will refrain fanatical brutality … as have shocked civilization.”

Grover Cleveland wrote December 7, 1896:

“Mad bigotry and cruel fanaticism … wanton destruction of homes and the bloody butchery of men, women, and children, made martyrs to their profession of Christian faith … Our citizens in Turkey … in the midst of dreadful scenes of danger, their safety … is by no means assured …”

Cleveland continued:

“The outbreaks of blind fury which lead to murder and pillage in Turkey occur suddenly and without notice…

I do not believe that the present somber prospect in Turkey will be long permitted to offend the sight of Christendom…

It seems hardly possible that the earnest demand of good people throughout the Christian world for its corrective treatment will remain unanswered.”

President Cleveland defended traditional marriage, December 8, 1885:

“The strength, the perpetuity, and the destiny of the nation rest upon our homes, established by the law of God, guarded by parental care, regulated by parental authority, and sanctified by parental love.

These are not the homes of polygamy.

The mothers of our land, who rule the nation as they mold the characters and guide the actions of their sons, live according to God’s holy ordinances,

and each, secure and happy in the exclusive love of the father of her children, sheds the warm light of true womanhood, unperverted and unpolluted,

upon all within her pure and wholesome family circle. These are not the cheerless, crushed, and unwomanly mothers of polygamy.”

President Cleveland insisted on lower taxes and currency that was “redeemable in gold on demand.” In 1887, President Cleveland vetoed the Texas Seed Bill, stating:

“I do not believe that the power…of the general government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering …

A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited mission of this power … should … be steadfastly resisted … Though the people support

the government, the government should not support the people. Charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their

fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly … demonstrated.”
