O'Neill Answers Blanshard Attack On Catholic Church A refutation of recent criticisms of the Catholic church was given by Professor J. M. O'Neill, author of "Catholicism and American in a lecture at the Col- lege of Saint Teresa Wednesday afternoon. Professor O'Neill is chairman of the department of speech of Brooklyn college. He also spoke at St. Mary's college Wed- nesday morning. His book "Catholicism and Amer- ican -which will be pub- lished by Harpers ia is a reply to "American Freedom and Catholic Power" by Paul Blanshard which claims that the Catholic church is a threat to American freedom. Professor O'Neill pointed in his lecture at the'College of Saint Ter- esa to the part played by Catholics in the early history of the United States as evidence that they were as anxious as any other group to safeguard the freedoms enumerat- ed in Bill of Eights, including freedom of religion. Part in Building U. S. "Today's critics of the Catholic church, including Mr. Blanshard, have a tendency to act as if Cath- olics had just come to this coun- the speaker said, "instead of taking into account the fact that distinguished Catholics had a part in the very formation of the United States." A statement by Catholic Bishops of America issued in 1948 reaffirm- ed the church's stand that no spe- cial privileges should be shown by the United States government to any religion, Professor O'Neill said. In criticizing Mr. Blanshard's book, Professor O'Neill explained that the "experts on belief and practice of American Catholics" who Mr. Blanshard claimed assist- ed him jn his writing actually in- cluded no Catholics. Complete refutations of state- ments made in "American Free- dom and Catholic Power" may be found in the books listed in Mr. Blanshard's own bibliogra- phy, Professor O'Neill pointed out. In refuting Mr. Blanshard's con- tention that the Catholic hierarchy dictate to Catholics how they should vote, Professor O'Neill cited the record of Catholic members of Congress. Votes Differ "The voting record of Catholics in the last three Congresses shows that they have differed almost as much as humans can differ. There- fore it is impossible that their vote has been dictated by any one the speaker concluded. He also pointed out that the Catholics in the last three Congresses have been the most outstandingly liberal group in the legislative body, which certainly does not support Mr. Blanshard's contention that'Cath- olics have been forced to be ultra- conservative by the Catholic hier- archy. In his St. Mary's talk, Professor O'Neill opened his speech with a definition of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United .States, and explained the meaning of freedom, the right of a minority to pursue freedom even if the ma- jority votes against it. Measuring the Catholic church in the framework of the American way of life, Professor O'Neill relat- ed how the founding fathers of the Constitution had desired the free- dom of religion, and had ordained that no state church should be es- tablished. "Two- signers of the. Constitution, who were he continued, "had expressed ap- proval of the amendment And un- til the McCullom Case of .1948, no instance of disagreement or con- flict had appeared. Contrary to Amendment McCullom decision, howev- is really contrary to the First amendment for it prevents the .majority of. the students from ob- taining instruction, although they have voiced the desire for this re- ligious education. Such a decision is unprecedented in the history -of this country. "The Catholic church does not oppose any government which does not interfere with the exercise of religious authority in matters of faith and morals. Mr. Blanshard, on the other hand, is an advocate of the supreme, democratic state, where the majority is infallibly right, even in matters contrary to conscience and the moral code. The Church holds that the moral code is supreme." 'Blanshard's related Pro- fessor O'Neill, "is no great literary effort, but because of the praise by biased scholars, it has become a best-seller. However, bis book is criticized not only by Catholics but members of other faiths who be- lieve in the authority of each re- ligious denomination to define the moral and religious obligations of its members." When asked about the controver- sial issue of sending an envoy to the Vatican, Mr. O'Neill replied, that "actually the Vatican is a state, it is recognized as a state by 44 other nations, and it is the best listening post in the world. The recognition of the Vatican would in no way be an indication' of the acceptance of the Catholic Church as the preferred church of the United States."
