ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the attitude of sociologist G. Stanley Hall toward religion and morality. Hall stated that the acrimony of sectarian bigotry is abating it is time to remind that childhood and youth need religion more than anything else and more than at any other time of life for the very formation of character, and that education without it lacks heart and soul. Indeed, perhaps in no instance did Hall show a more exact scientific attitude and a more beautiful spirit of tolerance than in his study and consideration of religious experience and research. Although having strong convictions of his own he freely and enthusiastically gave of his time and energy to all investigations of whatever sort and manifested uniformly respect for every sincere human expression and form of religion which came to his attention.
