​"[M]ost cowboys were hostile to Christianity, indeed all religions.  Teddy Blue testified that 90 percent of the cowboys were 'infidels' because of their life: 'after you come in contact with nature, you get all that stuff knocked out of you -- praying to God for aid, divine Providence, and so on -- because it don't work.'"
