Source of "Failed the test of humanity"?

Based on it being used unclearly elsewhere I ended up googling the phrase "Failed the test of humanity". I found multiple uses of it but no obvious originating source of the phrase. Does any one know where this apparent idiom comes from? Is it associated with a particular religion/culture?

-It's also the name of Canadian humanitarian group and bike race
-It's mentioned in passing in a Yoraba story
-It tends to be used when a culture disastrously fails a minority group
So that's my JFGI results. Anybody actually know the origin?
