Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBR10GE HERALD Saturday, April 28, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ELIGION Uganda missions face deportation By C. C. MIMCLIER KAMPALA, Uganda I Tlos is the month of decision for some Canadian, Amer- ican, British, Italian and Dutch missionaries in Uganda. Their three-year work per- mits, issued under the govern- ment of former president Milton Obote, are due to expire. Presi- dent Tdi Amin, a Moslem, has repeatedly said he wants Afri- cans to run their own well as everything else. Two missionaries and their wives were ordered to leave Uganda April 25. Rev. Hugh Layzweli of Vancouver and Rev. David Freeman of Seattle, Wash., both were served with deportation orders. Layzwell had been in Africa for 14 years, and worked at the Kampala headquarters of the Gospel Mission of Uganda, to which both men belonged. Free- man was pastor in the town of Masaka for nine years. Amin has denied that he seeks to make the Moslem faith predominant in Uganda, a largely Christian country, say- ing, "such talk is dirty British propaganda." At the same time he warned "any religious leader who brings confusion will be dealt with by military tri- bunal.'' Radio Uganda publicizes con- verts to Islam. It reports that 420 made the change "because they realized it was the only true religion." Amin likes to point out that he is the only Moslem in his cabinet. Others note that Mos- lems are often No. 2 in govern- ment departments and hold high positions in the army. Moslems out Ironically many of the Asians Amin ousted last year were Moslems. Christians tend to agree that Amin is not carrying out reli- giius persecution, even though many Christians have myste- riously died or disappeared without trace since he assumed power. Nominal or practising Chris- tians account for roughly eight million of this land-locked Afri- can republic's 10 million souls, with another million being Mos- lems and the rest practising tribal religions. Christians, by virtue of mis- sionary schooling, tend to be better educated and thus in po- sitions of influence and poten- tial power. Protestants, initially from Britain, and Roman Catholics, initially from France, have competed for the souls of Ugan- dans since explorer Henry M, Stanley wrote to The Daily Telegraph in London in 1875 in- viting Christian missionary de- velopment. C.ily once did the opposing Christian factions unite, in 1885- 6 when the king, or kabaka, of of the five traditional kingdoms of Ug a n d persecuting Christians, burning some at the stake. j Pope Paul journeyed to] Uganda in August, 1969, to honor those Christian martyrs. Uganda marks the anniversary of his visit as a national holi- day, as it does all Christian and Islamic holidays. A six-man papal delegation visited Amin last December, seeking to out church- state differences "in justice and friendliness" soon after Amin ousted 58 Catholic missionaries, two Anglicans and a Protestant. Most Rev. Emmanuel Nsubuga, archbishop of Kampala, earlier had made Amin angry by refus- ing to endorse his ouster of the Asians. Baha'i name new officers Nine officers were elected recently to form the Lethbridge i Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'i faith. Named as chairman was Peter Rempel.

BOB ELLIOTT Anglicans to review church role for women TORONTO The role of women in the church is expect- ed to take a significant step for ward when the general synod of the Anglican Church of Canada meets in Regina on May 3. That's when the long stand- Ing question of admitting An- glican women to the priesthood will come to a vote. The national executive coun- cil of the Anglican Church of Canada announced last Novem- ber that-a recommendation to ordain women as priests would be presented to general synod, the biennial assembly com- posed of clergy and lay del- egates from parishes across Canada. At present in the Anglican church, a woman may be or- dained a deacon which enables her to use the prefix Rever- end; to preach sermons; offi- ciate at weddings, christenings and funerals and carry out normal duties of a curate. But, unlike her male counter- part, she may not be ordained to the priesthood. She is de- nied the authority to con- secrate the bread and wine for communion, and may not pro- Christian youth plan May Day Moscow rally COPENTAGEN (AP) Two hundred Christian youths from the United States and Western Europe are entering the Soviet Union for a Bible-distributing and arrest-inviting demonstra- tion in Moscow's Red Suare during the May 1 parade, one of the organizers said here today. Rev. Hans Neerskov, head of the Danish Europe Mission, said planns are to try to dis- tribute pocketsize edi- tions of the Gospel According to St. John smuggled into the So- viet Union in the last year. He said other organizations in Sweden, Norway and The Neth- erlands helped organize the ac- tion. It was announced in ad- vance to avoid charges of con- spiracy under Soviet law, he said. Among the demonstrators, who are travelling individually but will operate in "cells" of 10 and convene for concerted ac- tion in Moscow May 1, are about 80 young Americans, Neerskov said. He said the demonstrators Priest ads draw good response MONTREAL (CP) The re- sponse to newspaper advertise- ments calling for candidates to the priesthood has surpassed all expectations, say officials of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Montreal. Rev. Barry Jones, ir-forma- tion officer for the archbishop's office, said 18 candidates are being interviewed with the hope they will be able to begin stud- ies. The ads also prompted "a couple of dozen" other calls for information, Father Jones said. "It was beyond all our ex- pectations. Naturally, there is still a long way to go before we get real results, but (Ms is very heartening." Father Jones said the English sector of the church in the Mon- treal archdiocese has faced con- tinual shortages of priests, or- daining only between two and sax priests each year. The newspaper ad campaign In Montreal was inspired by a similar campaign in Playboy magazine last year by the Rri- nitanan Order in the United States. were bound to be arrested, but said he hoped they would man- age to hand cut most of the gos- pels to parade spectators. Neerskov's Europe Mission has long been active in Bible smuggling, and Neerskov was arrested and interrogated for three days in 1970 after smuggl- ing 37 Bibles into the Soviet Un- ion. nounce absolution or hear a confession. Five years ago at the Lam beth Conference it was accept- ed that there was no conclu- sive theological evidence why women should not be ordained to the priesthood. All Anglican churches were then asked to study the matter. BREAKTHROUGH Two years later at the Angli- can Consultative Council at Limuru, Kenya, a breakthrough came. By a narrow vote of 24 to 22, representatives of the members of the 90 world Anglican communities, decided that any bishop in the communion, with the consent of his provincial synod, could or- dain women to the priesthood. Bishop Gilbert Baker of Hong Kong acted promptly and ordained one Chinese woman and one English woman as priests. In so doing, Bishop Baker said: "I believe that someone has to make a start and it may be that, because of our pecu- liar position as the only active diocese in the Anglican Church in China, God is enabling us to act where others might find it difficult."
