Peirce had strong, though unorthodox, religious convictions. Although he was a communicant in the Episcopal church for most of his life, he expressed contempt for the theologies, metaphysics, and practices of established religions.

Peirce, always rhymes with the English-language word "terse" and so, in most dialects, is pronounced exactly like the English-language word "Aboot this soondpurse ".
