English term or phrase:urging the claims of religion
Avoid introducing religious subjects upon inappropriate occasions. There are times when serious injury is done by ***urging the claims of religion***. Your child is angry. His flushed cheek and violent motions show the sinful irritation of his mind. Shall the mother now converse with him upon the wickedness of these feelings and God's displeasure? No! It is unseasonable. It would be as unavailing as to converse with a madman, or one intoxicated.
