The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.
People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.
Kronmiller later served as a voluntary member of the board of visitors to the Baltimore City Jail from 1908 to 1912, as director of the Maryland General Hospital in 1913 and 1914, and resumed his former manufacturing pursuits. He was a member of the board of supervisors of election for the city of Baltimore from December 29, 1914, to May 1, 1916.
