Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 2, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Sin by Any Other Name Is Spreads the Word AP Wirephoto The Rev. Claude Du Teil, Episcopalian head of St. Christopher's church in Kailua, Ohau, leans on the fender of his car that bears the license plate, "Amen". By George VV. Cornell AP Religion Writer NKW YORK (AP) One of America’s greatest psychiatrists, Dr. Kart Menninger, says the old religious word, ‘ sin,’’ has almost disappeared from modern usage, but it remains a fact of the human condition that must be recognized to deal will) it. Ile says the realities of personal ‘‘guilt and sin" have been glossed over as only symptoms of emotional illness or environmental conditioning for which the individual isn’t considered responsible, but he adds: There is ‘sin’ . . . which cannot be subsumed under verbal artifacts such as ‘disease,’ ‘dc-linquence,’ ‘deviancy.’ There is immorality. There is unethical behavior. There is wrongdoing.” Reaffirmation He calls for a reaffirmation of the concept of ‘‘sin’’ and of personal responsibility for it. In a new book, called ‘‘Whatever Became of Sin?’’, he declares: "If the concept of personal responsibility and answerability for ourselves and for others were to return to common acceptance, hope would return to the world with it." Menninger, who pioneered psychiatry in this country and who founded the psychiatric center in Topeka, Ran., that bears his name, says the ‘‘sense of personal moral responsibility is faint and apparently growing fainter.” Challenging the views of such behavioral scientists as Harvard’s B. F. Skinner that individual acts always are deter mined by environmental or physical conditions, Menninger times a great harm to ignore cites experimental evidence to a symptom.” these.
