10 THE LETHBRiDGE HERALD Saturday, December 21, 1974 Court blames Roman slayers By NAN ROBERTSON New York Times Service PARIS The Romans, not the Jews, killed Jesus. This was the thrust of a court deci- sion last week m which a judge ruled that an outcast Roman Catholic pnest had libeled a famous French lawyer in their dispute over who was responsible. The verdict brought to an end one of the strangest trials in this nation's history, with the gospel being brandished as evidence. The priest found guilty is the Rev. Georges De Nantes, who views the Pope and liberal French bishops as heretics. In a review last year of a 1967 book, The True Trial of Jesus, written by the lawyer, Jacques Isorni, the priest said the author tried to absolve the Jews of years of collec- tive guilt by attributing Christ's crucifixion entirely to Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea. Isorni, an ultra conser- vative like Father De Nantes, asserted in his book that legal, biblical and historical research showed that Jesus was condemned because he had rebelled against the Roman occupation, not because a Jewish tribunal wanted him executed for say- ing he was the son of God. The lawyer wrote that the Jews never took Christ's claim to divinity seriously and looked on him as an imposter. The Abbot De Nantes said in his review that Isorni had falsified the New Testament and called him an "unpaid lawyer for the Jewish people "In this great trial of the Jews against Jesus and the church against the the priest said, Isorni "opted for the Jews and against their vic- tim." The lawyer then brought suit for libel, asking symbolic damages of one franc (23 which was awarded in a courtroom in Troyes. SEASON'S for a very Merry Christmas Happy New Year!

CZARNY HOMES Pope wants harmony during Holy Year VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul has denounced clerics who challenge his authority and called on all Roman bishops, priests and take an active part in reconciling dissidents "with God and with their brethren." The Pope expressed sorrow over priests who renounce the priesthood. But he criticized dissidents who remain within the church to undermine its unity from within and oppose the hierarchy. The 77-year-old pontiff issued a apostolic exhortation appealing "to all THE Sunday Crossword ffor i !v tlii u Yin k lit i .ild 'I i ihuiu Ci d) 1'diU'd bv Kobert B Gillcspie Crossword CORPORAL PUNISHMENT B> Herb L Risteen ACROSS 1 Mismotch. as colors 6 Imp 11 Marine 16 Blows top 21 Avian abode 22 Complete say 23 Poplar 24 live qirl 25 horsoto Wdter 26 Atp e check b> low1? ?8 Coconut 29 Cdttle in Soho 30 Considpr 32 Debtroy 33 King Kong's FJV 35 Carpenter, for one 36 Narrowly 38 my mouth 40 Most gay 41 Othf rwise 42 Sdiijnidnder 43 bird?

Two farmers, bent on farce, call cow barns "mooteU." Wise cock crows like clockwork. Christians of good will not to let themselves be impressed or disoriented by the undue pressures of brethren who are unfortunately misguided and yet who are always in our prayers and close to our hearts." The Pope said the Catholics causing internal dissension unfaithful to the spirit of God were "small in number by comparison with the vast ma- jority of the faithful." Pope Paul urged full reconciliation "with God, and within us in harmony with the general theme of Holy Year 1975." Planning group formed EDMONTON (CP) A move to co ordmate church sites in the Fort McMurray area of northeastern Alberta resulted this week in the for- mation of an inter- denominational com- mittee to plan sites for the whole province. Officials of the Alberta Housing Corporation held an initial meeting about the Fort McMurray area in December and 19 denominations showed up at Wednesday's meeting. The committee, with Presbyterian Rev. Calvin Doka of Calgary as president, was set up to encourage co- operation between denominations in planning church sites in both rural and urban areas, said United Church Rev. Harold Black of Namao, the committee's secretary The committee will also make it possible for churches to speak with one voice to government and developers, Mr. Black said. Often developers do not allot land for churches because they are uncertain about which denomination should have the site, but the committee should be able to establish which denomi- nations want to go into a particular area and advise developers and civic and provincial authorities, he said. Mr. Black said several denominations want to go into Fort McMurray. Emile Leger to pastor in Montreal MONTREAL (CP) Paul- mile Cardinal Leger, 71, who established schools for lepers at Yaounde in the West African stste of Cameroon has been named pastor of Ste. Madeleine Sophie parish in a north-end suburb. Announcing the appoint- ment this week, Mgr. Paul Gregoire, archbishop of Montreal, said Cardinal Leger would continue the work in Ahuntsic he started five years ago to make people here more aware of the problems in the Third World. A spokesman for the arch- bishop said Cardinal Leger in- tends to maintain his links with Africa, although the network of schools established by him in Cameroon now func- tion autonomously.
